Wednesday is Emma Sage's most favorite day of the week......why? you ask?.........Well, Wednesday is the day she gets to put on her pink tights and little tutu skirts and dance, dance, dance!
Our first Dance Class was this past Wendesday. Emma Sage was beyond giddy and delight getting ready. She wanted her hair in her 'loo-hoo' as she calls it [You know, from Who-ville and that old Grinch], although those of us who experienced the phenomenon of watching the first release of Star Wars back in the 1970's will only think of Princess Leah when we see Little Miss' dance hair style.
Dance Class was a dream. The studio is wonderful and everyone there has been just fantastic on inclusion. The class is filled with 10 other little girls, all of the age of five, since it is a 5 to 7 year old class, but this session is held from 1 to 2 pm, so only Kindergarten [5's] attend this class. There are two other 5 to 7 year old sessions in the evening and weekends, so it will be fun to watch the recital this year [mark your calendar for June 16th].
I had a very pleasant conversation with one of the Mom's sitting next to me, who just beamed when she told me of her beloved cousin that has T21 [ah, someone who really gets it!!!]
We are not able to watch, but we could hear the music, the instructor and when it came time for 'TAP' 20 tap shoes tapping away!!!!
Here are a few pictures I was able to capture of the first day........ and I say 'Tried' to capture, because if you notice in every picture, this child would not stand still....and my digital is not good with movement [ah, someday soon I hope my dream of a digital SLR comes true so I don't have to have burry images of my little poetry in motion],,,,so look closely, in the above photograph look at her one foot [tapping way!!!]
I love this one of her with her little pinky stuck in her mouth as she takes a moment to 'reflect' I love this one as I her face was so serious, but if you notice her hand, they were moving a mile a minute as well as her toes [which came out as blurrrss on the original crop of this image]
