Little Dancers

Last fall the boys got to play soccer.  They had a great time.  Well, we figured it was time for the girls to get to do something.  Welcome to Dance class!  Sandra and Mhari are taking dance (ballet and tap) from the local rec center.  Last week was their first class and they loved it!  The parents were allowed in for the first class so that was fun too ;).  I got some fun pictures of Mhari...

My little dancer



So cute - the whole class stretching with their teacher, Miss Tracy.

Um, ya, Mhari's legs are supposed to stay down, but she kept lifting them up when they rolled back to this position.  Too funny.  Seriously, this was great entertainment for me ;)

More stretching

Learning how to do First Position.  They are sprinkling "magic dust" onto their feet, their toes open and they can see their sticker that was hiding - creating a first position pose.

By the time it was Sandra's turn for class Clark didn't want to sit still anymore so I didn't get to go in and watch her.  Her teacher said she did good :).  
Later I had her model what she had learned for me ...

Doing a Plie.  Um, Mhari can't quite do this yet ;)

First position.

Dancing sideways around the living room.
The girls are enjoying dance and the boys have time to run around and play with their soccer ball while they wait.  It's going to be a busy time, but fun for the next 6 weeks!  I'm excited to see how much they learn and how much natural talent they have - especially Chica ;).
