Last night was Lolabee's first day at dance class. It's called Tippi Toes and it's a combination of ballet/jazz/tap. I admit, I have been hesitant to let her join a dance class bc I had this fear that their dancing style would be a little too risque for my three-year-old. Mini Vegas showgirls kept coming to mind. Maybe I've watched "Toddlers & Tiaras" on TLC one too many times...As a kid, I took dance but only for a few years. I liked the costumes more than anything, I think.
However, I found this flyer at church and, after a little research, I decided it'd be okay to enroll her. She loves to dance. She likes to dance in the car, at home, out in public -- just recently we were at the mall for the first time this year and while passing Abercrombie, she heard their blaring music and had to stop and dance a little. It was so funny. We like to be silly. These days, even Cal dances. Granted, he looks more like Forest Gump, but that's just his style. Ha!
The class started off with each little girl getting sparkles dusted on their arms and ended with a ballerina sticker. Lolabee loved it. I was so proud of her bc she listened very well to the teacher and followed the directions given. It's my hope that she's always like that when we're not around. She had a lot of fun. Plus, she looked so stinkin' cute in her little dance outfit.
