Dance, Dance, Dance


It seems that my girls love dance. Especially Micaela! All day long they are continually making up little dances, often to a song that they also make up. So I sit on the couch and they put on a little show for me. Because Micaela is such a little ham, they are usually quite funny, and Lauren usually winds up laughing so hard she can hardly breathe.

We switched dance studios last year to the 'The Pointe' (if you've watched Fox 13 lately, they've done little spots on them because two guys from 'So you Think You Can Dance' perform with Odyssey Dance, a professional dance group, who rehearse at the same location as "The Pointe")

They tried out again and are both on "company" this coming year. Lauren will be doing 3 hours of dance a week, and Micaela 2 hours. They love "company" because they like to learn dances and perform, and especially love the costumes. In this picture the girls were flamingos for their ballet dance, during their end of year recital which happened last month. They were in the same ballet class together this past dance year. It's fun having two girls who are so close in age and are best friends, too!

Its about time you caved in to the blogging family!

Too cute pics. Lauren really misses dance but I think (when she gets her all clear at the end of the week) we will be finding a gymnastics gym to try first.

Hey, thanks for the email announcing your blog....be careful, it's addicting. :)

Cute lil' dancers. I still have the image of Micaela up on her bare toes in an attempt at being on point at Halloween....I think it's burned onto my retinas just imagining the pain...

Your girls are so cute. I 'm so glad to see your blog! I agree with Andrea, blogging can be addicting. For me though it's a great way to document all the happenings of our little family, and if no one else cares, at least we have it for our records.

Our blog is www.harperhoorahs.blogspot.com.
