When she figured out Christina was in dance class and saw her go every week, AND THEN, when she saw the recital... OH MY! She wanted to dance! I told her she could take a class this fall and she did not forget. She has asked me about it all summer.
I have the best videos of her during the Olympics! (I just have to figure out how to get them from my phone to youtube) She LOVED the gymnastics. Now, for me personally, I would love to put her in gymnastics. I was a gymnast and a dancer growing up, but I really have a heart for the Sport of Gymnastics, and sometimes feel like the Art of Dance has gotten a little lost with the ridiculous amount of make-up they pile on the little girls at recital and some of the dances? Not age appropriate. Fortunately we've just been able to kind of pass over that part with that with my oldest daughter. Her dances have always been appropriate, we don't push into competition teams, yet she still gets to enjoy the art of dance and do her end of the year recital, and we definitely ease up on the make-up for performances. ;-)
I might try Hua Hua out in gymnastics next year but the gym is a bit of a drive, so for right now, she is taking a Ballet/Tap combo class and she loved her first day!!

|"Okay Mom, you have to let me go now and stop taking pics! I have to close the door and start class!"|
|"Whew!! That was a fun class!!"|
|Happy little girl, finally got to go to dance class!!!! She puts on this leotard every evening by the way. :-)|
