Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

My daughter and neighbor friend decided they wanted to do a dance/lip sync in the elementary school talent show. We procrastinated way too long on putting the dance moves together (my neighbor and I), and with just a few steps and 10 days to go, I called in re-enforcements from my friend Tracey. She is a dance teacher, after all. I thought I’d be able to come up with the basic choreography, but I am just WAY too rusty.  Did you know I was on drill/dance team all through middle school and high school? I was decent–definitely not the best, but I love to bust a move. It was fun to practice this with my girl, and I thought I’d share a video and a few snaps from us practicing. My hubby took the video on his phone, and for some reason, it didn’t transfer very well and is pretty pixelated. Oh well, you get the picture. You can hear that it was a whole family affair from the commentary;)


Here are a few snaps taken by my son (you can hear the clicking in the video)


It was fun to do with my daughter…maybe sometime I”ll share the pics of the 2 little girls dancing, they are much cuter, but I wanted to share one of my loves of dancing, today. Just call me Dance Mom.
