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.
Lets hope that, for everyone's sake, he doesn't take up the bagpipes!
So cute! Maybe their brother will be a piper.
They are adorable! I love to see young girls enjoying dancing. And they got rhythm, it seems! :-)
i believe i remember their first experience!! they are beautiful girls and i LOVED their outfits!!!
Wonderful girls and wonderful pictures. I can hear those taps on the wood.
Just a little Degas there.
They are absolutely adorable Marie. Those look like clogging or tap shoes so I'd imagine they sound as good as they look !
Darling girls in their cute dresses! Good for them. Hope the little one dances too such joy.
What complete honeys. For some reason bagpipe music always makes me weep, but that precious pair would have induced sentimental tears anyway.
It's wonderful that they find lots of enjoyment in dancing and you find lots of enjoyment watching them perform. It priceless for all!
I remember you mentioning the visit to the summer production. Your grand daughters do look as if they are really enjoying their dancing you must be so proud of them! Sarah x
Isn't that wonderful?! They learn so quickly at that age, willing to try anything new. It's great for kids when their instructors arrange a performance; it gives them a boost - and their parents, too.
OMG! Start 'em young, as we say. How delightful, Marie. I'd be popping all my buttons, as surely you were, too. I would love to think they'll carry dance into their far distant futures! I'm not sure little brother has a choice??? :)
They are beautiful. How grand that they enjoy this so much. Such fun for the family to watch and encourage them.
Great photos and beautiful children Keep well Diane
I couldn’t bring myself to write bagpipes in the piece. I have grown to love the sound but whilst someone is learning, I don’t know.
Maybe, but could he skip all the practice which everyone would have to endure? Lol.
They are joyful whilst performing, Jan.
Their British grandma gave them the dresses. They were perfect for the occasion.
Oh dear, I haven't been keeping up with blogs, either my own or other people's! Your little girlies are lovely, I'm so glad they enjoy dancing. Such a nice form of expression.
They enjoyed every minute, Joanne.
The tap shoes were perfect, Ginnie.
Both enjoy dance so much, Celia.
This grandmother had a tear or two, EC.
It was a great family experience, Bill.
We love to see them enjoying something so much, Sarah.
It is amazing how much the girls learned in such a short time, Jenny.
Little brother will find his own joy I’m sure. A part of me hopes it’s not the bagpipes because of the practice required! Lol.
The joy they experience from performance is a wonder to behold, Mildred.
It was a great afternoon, Diane.
Dance is such a beautiful expressive art form, Shammi.
Oh my gosh they are both too gorgeous Marie! Adorable pictures you took here, you must have been bursting with pride. I know I was on Sunday evening watching my 6year old great niece in her first ballet concert.. like your girls she loved every minute ☺
That's so great that they enjoy dancing! I hope they never stop!
Step dancing is great fun. When I go to a Celtic or country concert, people really warm up if there are a few step dance routines. From what I can gather, Ottawa Valley step dancing may be a little wilder or more exuberant than the east coast variety, but my knowledge is limited, and I am probably wrong about that. Anyway, great fun for the kiddies and the parents and grands to watch.
It is wonderful to see children take delight in things, PDP.
I hope so too, Jenn.
The step dancing taught here is very disciplined, AC.
How fun! I think children should be encouraged to dance and sing and play musical instruments. The creative genes sometimes show themselves quickly but other times need more exposure to take root. I don't really have any talents either but I can cut a rug around the living room!
You are creative, Barbara. I don’t have your creative ability at crafts.
