Stadium of Fire

Scott & I had the Rare opportunity to attend the Stadium of Fire Dress rehersal. They usually let no one but show members do this. I got pictures of the girls that I otherwise would not, because As you will see below, for the actual Stadium of Fire we have nosebleed seats and could not get good pictures of the girls. I hope you will read my comments about each event. Everyone performed except for Miley that night. The girls have some different shots on their blogs. Please go check them out and leave a comment. Thank you!

Some of our Front & Center dancers.

It was funny. When they had the jets fly over they showed a member from the blue man group as if he was flying the jet upside down.

Scott feeding the flag through the stands. You will see this on the main stadium of fire pictures,


The amazing Sky Divers in the opening show!

Blue man groups True Identity!

The stadium dancers had to do a seven minute routine. Each summer olympic sport was covered in the dance. they had three days of practicing at the stadium in the HOT summer sun. Several dancers had to be hospitalized or treated for dehydration, passing out, heat stroke etc. I was so proud of the girls. They hung in there did great and never complained once.

The girls coming out on the field

Horse jumping

Boxing runners

Wrestling tennis, baseball

Basket ball

Bicyclers- the end!

IT's time for the Show!! And the girls were ready!

I always love the pre show! The jets flying over are so cool and LOUD!!!! I always tear up when the United States flag comes out!

The huge flags that came over the audience. These are the same flags Scott was under last night at the rehersal. They say Courage, purity and loyalty, to represent the colors.

Stadium of fire dancers. I have to say it was cool getting to see it from above tonight. it is amazing to see them from way up high! They all did great! Even though I needed binnoculars to see the girls.

My girls 2 out of 1300 dancers!

BLUE MAN GROUP- they were great! I really was entertained. The show was funny, the music great! And who could resist the blue faces. If you read above then you got a sneak peak of Blue man groups true identity. Sorry about my nosebleed seat pictures. I didn't bring my high zoom lense. I didn't think they would let me in with it. So most were taken from the screen.

MILEY!!! The moment we were all waiting for. gotta tell you I was not impressed at all. She only sang three of her songs everyone knows. The rest were new ones that I didn't care for to much. She spent most of the time drinking her water bottle. Over all I say it was not her best performance. her voice did not even sound that great. But the girls screamed like crazy!

FIREWORKS- Best I have ever seen. Every year they get better and better.There is nothing like being in the stadium for them.

Always love the fireworks but I think it will be a long time before I go back to the Stadium of Fire. I also LOVE the jets. That was my favorite part of the parade too. How fun for the girls and how cool to be there for a rehersal. Miley bugs me so I'm glad I don't have kids old enough to be into her. :) Looks like lots of fun anyway.

Looks like great fun!! When I was younger I got to dance at the Stadium of Fire...what a fun experience! And my oldest son Corbin who is 6 REALLY wanted to go see Hannana Montana...though he wouldn't admit it if anyone asked him because he says his friends would make fun of him!!

The fighter jets were my favorite part to. I loved the blue man group I thought they were amazing, but I agree Miley was NOT that great even though of course M'Tali was in heaven just being there

I am so sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. Thank you for your comment. (a while back) I love meeting new people. Your girls are adorable. My in-laws went up to Stadium, they had a great time. Looks like you did too. Keep in touch.

Looks like you had a great time. I feel bad that we sold our tickets!

I thought this looked fun and was curious to see who would acually do it. So, even if I do not know you, sign the guestbook
