White Boys Can Dance

Grant LOVED his first day at dance class. He did a lot of standing around but did participate plenty. His skip was actually the best....and you should see his splendid tippy toes walk (with arms in an arc over the top of his wee little head...so cute). Notice his tap shoes??? Aren't they adorable. Tiny boy shoes are all but impossible to find! Even the studio manager was in awe of these itsy bitsy shoes.

Somehow I had managed to mess up the start date...so we showed up to NO class. Fortunately they were SUPER sweet and invited us to participate in the 3-5 year old class that had just started. I was so relieved...because I had been tempting him all day to dancing with kids..and I hated to lie of such wonderment.


The funniest part was when I saw a little girl whisper repetitively in Grant's ear..."You're a boy....you're a boy". Grant just SMILED the biggest grin. It was hilarious.


Tonight we actually start his real...toddlin twos class. The "mess up" seems to be working to our advantage because tonight he will not have the extreme newness that kids have the first class. It was SO much fun to watch him interact and sometimes follow directions...and most importantly have a GREAT time. Who knows if we will actually sign up for another month...but for now...he is experiencing something new.

He will living a boy's dream to be surrounded by a hoard of adoring girls. Dancing looks like fun.

I think it's "priceless" for boys to enjoy dancing, AND feel confident doing it in front of others. Encourage it while they're young! Girls love guys who can dance. When my boys have way too much energy, I'll say, "Okay, let's have a "Dance Party!" I'll turn on techno and dance with them. They love it.

Tizzy loves his dance class (and his dance teacher) and doesn't care in the least that he's the only boy.
Grant looks like he took right to it!
