It's the day of the Hudson Dance & Tumble Center's Show. This year's theme is the Dr. Seuss book, Oh, the Places You'll Go! The studio does a show every other year and let me tell you, it is ALWAYS spectacular.
Bella has been dancing with the teachers in this studio since she was two, although it might be since she was three. In any event, it's been for most of her life up to three nights a week.
When Bella first started dancing, I watched in amazement the interaction between the big girls and the little girls. I knew from the get go I wanted her to grow up in the studio.
Discipline. Poise. Kindness. Talent. Heartbreak. Trust. Beauty. Delight.
It's all there.
Bella has all that.
This year, I am not tapping. (That was a hoot)
This year, I am not volunteering. (First time ever)
This year, I am a proud mama, cheering (probably crying) in the audience for all the amazing dancers and especially, MY dancer.
Thank you HDTC!
Thank you Jody, Mary, Ms. Barthelmes, Aaron, Diane, and Claire for putting your all into this. I know how much goes into it.
Thank you to Miss Aurette and Colleen ~ you were Bella's first teachers.
Break a leg, one and all ~ and, BRAVO! in advance.
AND then I woke up with THIS song in my head!
