Dancing Queens

Sunday afternoon marked the girls first dance class.  They were very excited to get into their "dance clothes" and boogie the afternoon away.
This dance program is a class for kids with any kind of special need.  The classes are provided at no cost to us.  This program was started a few years ago by the sister and nephew of one of our neighbors.

As I never taken dance, nor had any inkling to sign the girls up for dance we thought we would take this opportunity to see what they think and give them some dance experience.

Their class is made up of about ten 3,4,& 5 year old boys and girls.  Each child had a volunteer (high school age dancer) that stayed with them and helped them during class.  My oh my did Dariya's girl get a workout!  Dariya wanted to be held most of the time as class is about an hour after church and runs right into their nap time.

At the end of class they "perform" what they learned that  session for the families.  Dariya has perfected the cuddle and I love that our friend Avery is watching her helper closely!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and I think this last picture of Alayna hugging Lexi, her helper says it all.

A great time was had by both girls!
