Today was Lu's first day of dance. She will be doing tap and ballet. Before we left she tried on her different dance shoes and gave them a test run. To say that she was excited would be an understatement. All summer she has been asking when she would be starting. I was hoping it wouldn't be too much of a let down, but she loved it. Here is a convo after class...
Me: Did they teach you any dance moves in class today?
Lu: Yes. I learned the pre-k.
Me: No, that is what kind of school you go to. What dance moves did you learn?
Lu: I learned the pre-k!
Me: I don't know about that. What does it look like?
Lu:(frustrated) Ugh...Mom I will just show you when we get home.
...(flash forward to her showing me the move)
Me: Oh, you learned the plie.
Lu: Yes, the plie-K
Ready for tap
Ready for ballet
Going into class with the other girls.
