Dancing Girl

Earlier this month, the dance school our granddaughter attends had the final show for the year. There were great performances by all of the girls and young women in ballet, tap and modern dance. Sylvie had a great time, enjoying every minute in the spotlight. 

 

If ever a child was different from her mother in her love of the spotlight and performance, it is Sylvie.

 

Sylvie performed her "ballet moves" as she calls them, 

 

then did her Broadway Babies tap piece. She exudes pleasure in every minute of the movement, rhythm and music. 

 

Somehow, dance is in her soul. Next year she wants to do three dance classes which may not be possible as her sister is beginning classes too.

 

It is wonderful to see our granddaughter's joy in dance at five years old. Who knows how long it will last but her family is on this journey with her and enjoying every minute.

  1. She is absolutely adorable. It is interesting how our children can be so different from ourselves. Must be some ancestor's genes who snuck in there. :-)

    1. I think the interest comes from an ancestor we know nothing about.

  5. I think your granddaughter is made for the stage and performing. I've seen, over the years, children who really aren't getting the fun from it, but going on these photographs your granddaughter is having the time of her life. That pleasure extends to the audience enjoying the routines too. Could I get her autograph now before she's famous! :)

  8. I was thrilled to see these photos. One of our younger granddaughters had the same exuberance during her dance competitions and I loved watching all the numbers. So sweet, I hope your granddaughter will continue for years to come as she does show a passion for dancing.

  9. The pictures are adorable. I wish my Grand Girl has the opportunity to take dance. Not all will take to it like your grand does. She certainly has stage presence.

  12. Ahhh... Your little sweetie will develop other interests now as she gets older. I always wonder how long our sweetie will remain in dance too.
