kate's first dance class

A few weeks ago, Kate started pretending "dance class," and one night before bed, she asked me if she could start going to real dance classes. It was a strangely grown-up conversation, and I told her that Daddy and I would think about it. She then kept reminding me that I promised we'd think about it! Needless to say, we got her enrolled!

Kate was so excited to go to her first class. She walked right in without fear, but then just stood in the back and wouldn't respond to the teacher's requests to participate. I was just glad she wasn't crying! Once they changed to tap, Kate was finally ready to dance!

The video is hilarious to me.... it's the moment she decided to stop being a wall flower. 

Just a note... this was a substitute teacher, and in Kate's regular class there are about 7 or 8 little girls. I thought it was so funny that there was only one other little girl there at the first class!

And the video:

We went to dance for the second time this week, and Kate followed the same course. She sat down for the whole ballet time, but then she got her new tap shoes on and was ready to roll! She just needs a little time to warm up to being there, I guess! It might take a few weeks before she tries any ballet. :)
