This weekend was Katherine’s Holiday Show. When she began her journey in to the world of dance, I truly thought it would be a blip on the radar. Rob and I have no (and mean no!) rhythm and Caroline’s foray in to the dance world revealed that she very much takes after her parents in the rhythm department.
Therefore you can imagine our surprise when Katherine began to truly love dancing. For awhile, I thought her love affair would not last but we are years in to this journey with no signs of stopping. You can’t help but feel happy when you watch Katherine on the stage. Her joy is contagious.
It all seemed like it was going to be a bit much and in truth, our weekend was filled with rehearsals and shows, with late nights and sore feet. But it was also filled with friends and teamwork, and lots and lots of dedication.
If truth be told, I used to agree with the people who thought that the real athletes played sports and the rest of the girls danced. The more time I spend with dancers and the more closely I watch the older girls, I understand just how strong and flexible and truly talented these girls are.
