Photo of the Week: Hawaiian Rainbows

This week provided ample photo and video opportunities! On Monday, Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Birthday, our own Carys Faith performed for her family at her Little Gym 'Jazzy Bugs' Gymnastics/Dance class's Show Week! Kind of like a recital, only without the costumes, memorizing dance steps or outrageous fees. Very, very low key.

Carys's class showed off their gymnastic prowess and then wowed us with their tap dance and ballet routines as well as "creative movement" (ie. free dance).

Here, without further ado, is Carys's ballet performance of Hawaiian Rainbow (apologies for the low-quality video):

Some of you already know that this is the third dance class that Carys has been a part of in the past 3 years. The previous two dance experiences, both at the JCC, did not go well. She was politely "kicked out" of the first one, and I removed her from the second class after Carys had repeated differences of opinion with the instructor. However, this casual, fun approach to kids' movement has been the perfect fit for her! She is one of the oldest girls in the class, which also helps with her self-confidence.
