We missed out on dance on Monday because Miss Cupcake was sickly(ish). She was definitely feeling much better yesterday and even went to school. So today we decided to hit up a different dance class for a makeup.
I was a little concerned for a few reasons. Cady is only 2.5. Dance is technically for 3 and up. Sandy, who is such a blessing to us, allowed Cady and some of the other Kindermusik kids that she has known for years now to join since she knows that they can follow directions. We all pretty much joined the same class, so for the most part it is a younger class. I figured this one would not be. Another friend did a makeup class with some of the older kids and found it to be a bad experience. Let’s face it, 2.5 year olds are pretty open to suggestion, so if the older kids aren’t acting right it’s going to be a fight to get the 2.5 year old to do the right thing too.
Cady can also be a bit squirmy, so she definitely doesn’t need any encouragement from older kids. And I was curious how she would do in a class with all new girls.
Why do I ever worry about this stuff? This kid is so stinkin’ adaptable. She kept up with the older girls (some as old as 4!) like a little dance pro.
It may be just that she is getting used to the routine of dance and she now knows what Miss Bri expects. And one thing I can say about her is that she wants to please. But she really did such a fabulous job today.
Class even went a little long today and Cady stayed with it and did her best. Cady Cupcake, I am so proud of you. You are my Prima Ballerina!
