Dance, Dance, Dance!

Tagged along with proud parents, Laurel and Russ, to see Claire's dance performance. She's been dancing forever, all kinds of dance, hours and hours each week spent practicing. More often than not, when I try to reach Laurel, she's at a dance practice or on her way to a dance practice or on her way home from a dance practice or getting food for her dancer or getting the backyard ready for a slumber party of dancers. It's a way of life for the whole family. 
So when Claire started high school this year and made it on to the school's dance team, it was a big deal. She really is incredible. Even better than some of the seniors dancing right along with her (and I'm not just saying that). There was something for everybody tonight - ballet, modern dance, hip hop, some sort of gansta rappy thing with baseball hats, a senior farewell video and solo perfomances. And then there was Claire. Claire, so beautiful, every little move perfect, every toe point, every smile. 

The kid can dance! 


  1. How great to know what you want to do at such a young age!

  2. Thank-you Ms. Lisa
    How sweet of you to not only show up, but to write about it also.
    You are a good friend.
