My First Dance Class!

Today we went back to The Little Gym after a summer hiatus.  It was the first day of Jazzy Bugs class!!!  We were prepared, I had bought tap shoes (otherwise known as the loud shoes) and ballet shoes (the quiet ones) and we had walked around the house in them.  Safi had on her SuperGirl leotard from SueSue and her shoes in her matching bag, but no tutu that came off before she walked out of her bedroom.

I put the tutu in her bag just in case but it didn't matter that all of her friends had them on, Safi was NOT wearing a tutu, oh well.  Shoes off and she marched into the gym without even so much as a wave bye to mom, guess I'm just the taxi driver now :(

 After a deep conversation with Pepper it was time to put on the loud shoes!!!

This is the position that she spent half of the tap time, oh and she looked like she was going to cry.  12 little girls with tap shoes on was a little too much for her.  Safi watched as the other little girls went slip sliding around the floor and she wanted nothing to do with that.  Pepper just took her shoes off :)  But eventually Safi did get up and start walking around.  Guess we will be practicing ALOT at home this week!!

SHOE CHANGE!!!  Time for the quiet shoes, yes!!

All in all it was a pretty good class, she listened and followed directions.  They are supposed to practice walking on their toes with straight legs this week, well we have that one nailed already!  The teacher even commented on that as well.

We celebrated with lunch at Jason's Deli with Jules and Linda.  It was a pretty good day :)
