They have taken classes since September and enjoy them. This past weekend, they had their Christmas show which highlights the work the students have done this fall.
Our girls were there, on stage, enjoying every minute. Neither is nervous going on stage and both look forward to performing.
Sylvie’s expression shows her delight in the experience. She loves to dance.
The younger child, Caitlin, loves on stage too. She did every step and with much aplomb.
She delights in performance as well.
We have yet to discover from whom the girls get their love of dance. Neither their parents nor grandparents are performers and some of us lack rhythm. The love of movement, expression, rhythm and performance skipped a few generations to come together in the girls. Will this enjoyment continue through youth? Who knows? For now, the enjoyment is evident and encouraged by the family.
Meanwhile, their six month old brother watched every performance and didn’t cry when the bagpipes and drums performed. Is he a dancer too? Or a drummer? Only time will tell.
