Abby’s 1st Ballroom Competition
This post is out of order, I’m going to move it down to September after a week or two.
Abby decided to try a new class this year at her dance studio, BALLROOM! It is always surprising to see (and I’m just entering this world) what your kids end up enjoying and gravitating towards. She has a ball during the entire class and talks about it during the week. It is a class with a lot of different ages, most of them older. Her ballroom partner is a friend she has had since she was 4 or 5. She talked one of her best friends into also joining the class. She also just has the sweetest and best teacher. I’m so pleased of how it is turning out and I would put money on this is something she sticks with for at least a few years.
She had her first ballroom competition just a few weeks after starting ballroom for the first time. Her and sweet George (my friend Emily Hill’s son of IsThisReallyMyLife.com) had a lot of fun, and that is all that matters. I did tell her to shake it more and have more sass and when she did that they PLACED! She placed on her first competition. I’m so glad she decided to give this a try. I think its good that she learns to look people in the eye, can hold a boy’s hand normally, and learns to dance with boys!
