Bree Hafen – #SYTYCD 2012 Premiere

Just in case you missed the season premiere of So You Think You Can Dance last night, I’m here today with the highlights: my SIL Bree Hafen and our cute little cousins Luke and Stella (I’m a bit biased. :) )

We had so much fun watching her last night. It’s hard not to laugh and cry all at the same time. Watching Bree dance to the song “Sort Of” by Ingrid Michaelson makes me cry, and then little Stella dancing on the stage…how can you not laugh.

Way to go Bree! We loved it! We are excited to cheer you on!

Watch Bree dance on YouTube (here).

    WOW!! Amazing! This made me get teary eyed too! Looks like she’s done a great job being a Mom and still keeping her own personal identity. That’s not easy to do, but so healthy and important!

    I am so glad you posted the link. I missed it last night and was so so bummed. I just cried watching this. Bree is an amazing dancer. Breathtaking! And Stella…oh my gosh…does she have some of her mommy’s moves down. That was precious. She definitely stole the show. Can’t wait to cheer Bree on. Making sure it is recorded for the WHOLE season. xoxo

    Mama’s dancing was beautiful…. but seeing the baby do her ballerina dance really took it to the next level! Congratulations!

  30. 30

    OH my crap, I looked at my daughter and told her I want Bree to win. I cried so much during that part…her little boy was so stinking cute yelling “I love you mommy”. And I crossed my fingers that Bree would be a good dancer…and she WAS…her dancing made me cry. I hope she makes it!!! It’s my most favorite show to date…I never dance and probably never will, but it amazing me every time I watch it.

    thats exactly what I did…laughed and cried. it was the sweetest audition! I loved when Lil C said “that’s because this is the best show on TV”!

    Good luck Bree, I’m on of those people that actually calls in votes and I’ll vote for you a million times!!!

    Finally got the chance to sit down and watch this! She’s awesome! And beautiful. And confident. And charismatic. And fit – wow she’s fit! That flip thingy she did?! Wow! I wonder if I can still do a cart wheel. I may just try. And her kids were so nice, friendly and outgoing….I was thinking how I can barely take some of my kids out to eat for fear of how they will behave – let alone put them on national television! Big cheers for them!

    Hey Kami! I very briefly met you at Snap, I’m not sure if you’d remember me. I just had to comment on your post though! One of my college roomates just sent me the link to this amazing audition. I’m hooked, and will totally be voting for Bree this season! What’s so fun, is that her dad was my bishop back in 2003 when I was at BYU. Loved him! So he must be your father in law. Tell him my husband and I say hello (Troy and Rachel Howard). I think he and my father in law played in a band back in the day, haha. I’ve totally seen his amazing recording studio. Anyway, longest comment ever, sorry! What a small world. Take care!
