She's Dancin'!


I just wanted to share with you that Savannah started dance classes this past week. She has been asking and asking to take dance for some time. Having been a dance teacher for quite a while, I remember what it was like with the 3 and 4 year olds. :) They were just darling, but it was more like "creative movement" than actually "dance". That's fine, but I just didn't want to start Savannah too early. Since she'll be 5 at the end of the month, I decided to take the plunge! She started ballet and tap and she absolutely LOVES it! I'm so happy because I really didn't know how she was going to do when it actually became something she'd have to "pay attention to" for more than 5 minutes! LOL She puts her tap shoes on a few times a day and practices her steps. It is just so cute! I was upstairs the other day and all of the sudden I heard some taps downstairs. Then I heard "brush toe heel" with the accompanying tap sounds. . .it made me giggle. I just love that she takes the initiative herself to practice. I hope that continues. Thanks for letting me share my exciting news with you! Have a great day!

Ahhhhh the tap dancing days! I took tap from the age of 8 until I was 16. Sometimes, when I'm standing in a long line at the grocery store or cooking at the stove, I'll often do a times-step or two! Savannah looks adorable in her dance leotard! And the little skirt - too cute! She will remember her dancing days forever!

Oh how it seems like yesterday that it was my little girl that was going off to her dance lessons. In May was her last recital after 13 yrs of tap,jazz, ballet. I wondered if she would stick it out. Hang onto those precious times and dance with her once in a while for old times sake.
hug her and squeeze her for all of us.......
