We Have Dancers

So proud of my little girl! She's struggled for nearly 3 years with the constant desire to attend a dance school. Struggled because she hasn't been able to overcome her fear of the situation...heading off into the unknown so to speak.

During this time we have sat in on and even tried to participate in lessons at various dance schools within the area. All to no avail. Except for a term of homeschool dance classes which she did participate in very sparodically.

So instead she has been content to dance at home, spending nearly all of waking hours dancing and putting on choreographed shows for her family.


Not any more, well she still dances at home and performs for us all of the time, but she has also been attending Jazz classes around the corner for about six weeks now and loving every minute of it.

This was huge for her to overcome and I am so proud of her for doing it. She is blossomng into a confident young lady.

B has also been heading off to dance class, with a weekly boys funk group which is enjoying immensely.

Wonderful!!! You must be so proud. My 6 yr old son has this problem with sports; he would like to play and can play at home, but he is paralyzed with fear in uncomfortable situations where he is expected to perform. It's so hard.

This is fantastic! I have been secretly hoping one of my daughters would love to go to dance, but they both always say "no way". Good for her for going for it!

It's nice that she is coming out of her shell. You must be super proud! She looks beautiful too.

Yay! Dancing is so much fun... I'm glad she's confidently attending lessons now. Go B! My boy thoroughly enjoys his classes, it's the highlight of his week! :)

Great job for your daughter to overcome her shyness!!! I tried mine in dance class but she didn't enjoy it, too much a tomboy I think:) Enjoy the dances at home!!
