When I was a little girl, I danced. Then I quit at age 3. I eventually went back in 4th grade or one of those last few elementary years and I lost "it" completely. Flexibility gone, I had some bounce, I could do some tricks but I kept wishing for a long time afterwards that my parents forced me to stick with it so that I would be one of those girls doing flips at recess-such is life! Well, now I can "force" my daughter! I kid, I kid, haha. Addison and I started Mommy & Me classes at the local Dance Emporium last fall. We actually met our now dear friends, Kelly and Alyssa, at dance and Addison loves her classes, teacher, friends - the whole experience. Me? I get a patient little girl who lets me do all sorts of fun things with her hair before class.
We are now in their summer classes month. The girls are taking Creative Movement I. This time around we don't go in with them so it's interesting to see them in a classroom setting without us holding their hands, literally. Here are some photos from the past season as well as their recital last month.
