newsgirl Posted August 29, 2011 Report Share Posted August 29, 2011 I hesitate to post because the last thing I want to sound like is one of those hyper moms, but I am curious about how young kids express their love for dance. Dd has been dancing and "spinning" since she was 2. Rather than bop up and down like most little kids she has been a full body mover... Extended arms, legs, twirling, spinning, leaping. Repeating certain movements to go with bits of songs she knows. We signed her up for Creative Movement at the city's ballet academy at age 3. After the first class she cried because it was over and she didn't understand that she could come every week. We took this summer off for vacation, swim lessons etc. And when I had her try on her new shoes for fall she got teary again. "Mom, I miss ballet." If she sees dance moves on TV, she will try to duplicate them. She almost has the salsa down from watching and episode of Dora the Explorer. This isn't really normal is it? I've been lurking on this forum for a few months. I have no experience with dance and ecerytumg I read about the time and money commitments for older kids I start to hyperventilate. On the second day of pre-k even her teachers commented on how much she loves to dance. Seems to be a sign.... So, when did you know? Quote Link to comment
