She’s only had her first lesson, but I think it’s safe to say our sweet girl is going to love dance class!
Yesterday morning the girls and I did our usual Monday running around, which includes a trip to the grocery store.
I had high hopes of taking lots of cute pictures outside the studio before her lesson, but the rain dashed those plans. And as soon as I signed her in, she was off to her class.
Mrs. Debbie, the owner of the studio is one of my Mom’s dearest friends. I’ve known her since I was five years old and her daughter, Cyndal, who I’ve known her whole life, will be AB’s teacher. Their family is precious to us and we are so excited that AB is getting to dance at D&D!
Her little class was quite a crew, I didn’t count, but I think there were around ten 3 & 4 year olds!
The Beginning Combo class is an hour long and they do both ballet and tap.
They started out in a circle on the floor and did their stretches. I was so proud of AB and couldn’t believe how grown up she looked sitting in there listening and following directions.
They have a closed circuit camera in the rooms, and the parents get to watch on a TV screen in the waiting area. There’s also a mirrored glass window that all the Mommas were taking turns crowding around trying to get a peek at their girls! I tried to snap a couple pictures with Mom’s cell phone through the window.
Mom and I were just dying- it was so precious!
They end the class each week sitting in a circle with prayer time.
It was precious to see, but the more I thought about it last night, the more I loved it. What a witness and example to these little girls – just reiterating to their tender little three year old hearts that you can pray ANYWHERE – even at dance class!
My Dad was waiting for us at the restaurant and we all had dinner and then cake to celebrate, as AB reminded everyone, “a very special day.”
She woke up long enough to facetime with her Aunt Nen & Uncle Adam to tell them all about dance class and try to facetime her Aunt Kels, and then she was back to bed! :)
