Dance, dance, dance
Baby Ballroom is a total BLAST! Although my girl is so heavy that it looks like I may drop her at times (LOL), we've learned the tango, the merengue, the salsa and the rumba. I love the Rumba and K loves it all! She keeps time during most of the dancing with her little hand tapping on her chest, and loves the part in the tango where we dip the kids upside down . She's also started clapping during the merengue, as well as tapping herself in the mirror. In between learning the dances, we sit down in a circle and sing a lot of fun songs and do actions to them all. We also do parachute songs and games and K is a total stitch - she LOVES the parachute. Last night, towards the end of the class, she crawled into the center of the circle and proceeded to dance on her legs and bob her head up and down like a head banger (that's my girl! LOL). Everyone laughed as they realized this girl LOVES to sing and dance! I highly recommend it if you have the means! Although it's a 40 minute drive for us, I really feel like it's worth it, as K just loves it and I get to get a bit of a work out in doing something I also love: dancing!
