Emma's First Dance Class

Emma loves to dance. So much so that she can't even sit still when she hears music. Even when we're watching TV, she'll get up and dance to any type of background music. We decided it was time to try her in a dance class.

The dance class we took her to was very understanding of our situation. They let us go in for a free class last night just to make sure that it is something that Emma would like and be able to follow. They suggested putting her into hip-hop as a starting point. Emma was SO excited and absolutely loved it. She was grinning from ear to ear for the entire hour. Her dancing abilities were OK under the circumstances. She tried to follow some routines that the other kids had already learned. It was very entertaining to watch. Every time the choreography would end all the kids would stop dancing, but not Emma. She would break into her signature freestyle. Once again she was the show stopper and had all the parents in stitches.

We've decided to enroll her in the class. Even if she doesn't become a fabulous dancer, it was just so great to see her having so much fun. This morning when she woke up she said, "Dance again today?"

Check out the little video we took......
