Catching Up Part 2 - Charlotte's Dance Class

In February, Charlotte started taking a pre-dance class at Florida Dance Theater. She LOVES it. I almost don't need to say that. Charlotte has been dancing in our living room for a while and it is nice to see her start to expand her technique beyond just shaking her body. Now, she can plie', twirl with her arms up, and lift her leg in an almost graceful way.

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves... and maybe some day, I'll even post the video. But more likely, you'll end up seeing the recital video first. Yep. She gets to be in a mini recital later this year that the whole family is excited about!

Charlotte is by far he youngest girl in her class and she started 5 months later. But Ms. Terrie reports that she keeps up with this just fine, even if she gets a little lost in space occasionally.

Dancing with her friend Lydia who is standing

Excited that mommy came into class to observe

Sitting still (a rare moment) and waiting for instructions. But you can see she is ready to get up at a moment's notice!

 Ms. Terrie talking to the parents while the girls sit still, for the most part.
 Still waiting... See why I love dance class? She is learning to sit still!

Playing with their wands, again with Lydia who is a year older.

Pretending to put on her makeup for her recital... it is one of their "numbers," all about how to get ready for recitals.
 Happy to see me!

Free dance time at the end of class... they are allowed to do whatever they want.

I promise she isn't picking a wedgie there, I just caught her as she was doing a sweeping motion with her arm.
