Jazzybugs

While we were in Washington Carter fell in love with dance (so tiny)...



And just because it's too adorable not to share, here is a little blast from the past that I just ran across...

So anyway, back to the dance. When we moved it was at the top of my list to find somewhere for her to continue to enjoy this creative outlet. Thanks to some great recommendations we ran across The Little Gym. Their dance class was a little broader, incorporating ballet, tap and gymnastics. I was a little skeptical thinking that it might be chaotic but it has been perfect! Carter loves the variety and has really enjoyed her class "Jazzybugs".


Last week was "show week" and they strutted their stuff for some very proud parents. First up was ballet...







Followed by a little shuffle, hop, step in their tap shoes...





We then headed into the gym. At this point I think Nate wasn't too sure about all this girl power...



but he watched and cheered like the good dad he is...




Carter's favorite activity is hanging around on the bars...





After a little time on the low bar it was time to head up...






I love the determination on her face in the this one...



And of course I had ample opportunity to capture some forward roll action...





Onto the next event...



Balance beam! Carter patiently waited her turn...




And then she was off...





She also loves this move...




It was so much fun getting to watch as she performed with pride and received her medal...



Which she enjoyed checking out a little more closely...




What a bunch of little cuties...



She was more than happy that her daddy made an effort to come...




And since he was there I got to be in a picture too...



We are so proud of this little Jazzybug...
