My little dancing girl

Gracie started taking dance lessons a couple of weeks ago.  She's going to Judy Dollenmayer, which is where I took lessons for years, many years ago.  She's taking a tap/ballet combo, and she LOVES it.  After her first class she came out and said, "Mommy, that was AWESOME!"

She absolutely adores her tap shoes and her ballet shoes and her leotards, especially the ones with the little skirts.  After every class she comes home and shows anyone who will watch what she did that night.  She's so damned cute I just want to eat her!

Usually the parents don't get to watch the class, but they left the door open for a little while this week so we could peek.  I managed to snap a few photos and capture a little video.  The photos are a bit blurry because I turned the flash off.  I'll get better ones in a couple of weeks when the parents get to go in and watch the entire class.  Until then...


Gracie fell asleep in the car on the way to class Wednesday night, and was cranky when I woke her up.  She kept saying, "I don't want to dance, I just want to watch."  I told her to go in and tell her teacher that.  This is her sitting on the floor sulking a bit before the class began.  About five minutes after class started, she came out to go to the bathroom.  As I was pulling her leotard back up she said, "Mommy, I was just kiddin' ya. I really do want to dance."  Goofy girl.  I checked with the teacher after class, and she said she participated the entire time.
