yesterday, i got to go to Emily’s dance school to “view” what she was learning. I was so impressed. my daughter has poise! she has discipline! she’s coordinated! It’s all thanks to a man named Jacques. I sat in awe as i watched my daughter walk backwards on tiptoes across a thin line that was the whole length of the room. i am not sure that i could even do that. it was amazing to watch her intense concentration.
and, as a mother, it was a fantastic day. this other mother turns to me and says, “your daughter is so good! she’s so coordinated.” I blushed, said thanks, and told her that it DIDN’T come from me
there are some poor girls in her class, though, that don’t know their toes from their elbows. I couldn’t help but snicker a little bit when these girls attempted to do the exercises.
