This week photos of my nieces at their dance recitals kept popping up on Facebook memories, along with lots of images of tiny dancers in costumes in their yards -- a familiar scene of coronavirus-era online dance recitals.

It brought back all sorts of memories about my own dance recitals -- which must have completely dominated my parents' time for more than a decade. Dance moms -- I give you so much credit.

On this #throwbackthursday, I bring you some of my best (worst?) dance costumes. Enjoy!


The costume with the high top Chuck Taylor custom tap shoes was for my routine set to "Do The Bartman."
