The cool thing about Cate's teacher is that she is Montessori trained. So the classes are by ability level, not necessarily age. And the older dancers help out in the beginning dancer classes. Cate followed right along with the girls that helped out in her class.
She smiled and tapped and pointed and jazz-handed her way around that stage like she owned it.
And when it was all over, she said she definitely wanted to do take dance again next year. I can't believe that will make year 3 for her! She said she wanted to win trophies for dancing (aka, be on the dance studio's dance team). We'll see. For now, my tiny dancer was tu-tu cute at her recital! And I am one proud Mommy.
P.S. I need to show you my favorite costumes of the recital. They're pictured below and were for a tap dance to "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy." I think they are ADORABLE! Don't you? And to my friends with sons, it is totally okay to enroll your boy(s) in dance classes. :-) The boys in this class rocked it!
