Soso took a dance class through her school, once a week for 12 weeks. It all culminated with a dance recital a couple of weeks ago. I had zero expectations and would have been happy as long as she moved a little and didn’t get stage fright. Christmas concert didn’t seem all that long ago when it was considered a success that no kids ran away from the stage.
Well, there is something to be said for having no expectations. It sets the stage for being potentially blown away by how good the kids were. They were so unbelievably adorable and cute and funny.
Pictured right is Soso as a Little Flower, getting ready to start the dance. Do you notice the lipsitck on her lips??? I got a glimpse of how she is going to look all grown up and call it a mother’s prejudice, but I think she’s going to be gorgeous!
Here she is as a bumblebee. I wish I could load the video, but I haven’t figured out how to do that yet.
I don’t know if she’ll ever take another dance class, but no other dance recital could ever top this one. There is something so sweet and wonderful about watching a bunch of four year old kids dancing. There is so much joy on their faces and on us, their parents, who are watching them.
