For around 300 kids and their families, all they wanna do on Mother's Day is dance!

The annual spring recital, this year called "Just Wanna Dance", is a decades-long Mother's Day tradition for Lyn's Academy of Dance, one that owner Lyn Mulcahy says only runs on mom power.

"This show is run by the mothers backstage, so it's really nice that they give their time on Mother's Day to be with their daughters and to watch them perform and do what they love to do," says Mulcahy. "The mom's are the glue backstage of this show."

The show gives mothers and their children something fun and unique to do on Mother's Day, and most importantly is the time that they can share together.

"I like that my mom gets to help backstage and I just get to spend time with her," says dancer Leona Swickwrath, 10. "We get to have fun. She's there to support me and she can help me get ready and stuff."

Those moments shared backstage mean the world when life seems really busy. Brandie Swickwrath, mother of Leona and Maverick, 2, says she loves the one-on-one time she gets with them through dance.

"It really strengthens your bond and you have these individualized moments," says Brandie Swickwrath. "I have two sets of twin daughters ages ten and eight, so for me and Leona it really gives us that special one-on-one opportunity to spend time together."  

The recital performed at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. at the Civic Center.
