Do you feel like dancing?

Bea at Ballet by Rachel Isadora

Sophie & Elizabeth with dance instructor Megan at the Fringe Festival Production “RockGarden Party” July 14, 2012

We just have a few days left until Sophie’s week of summer dance camp. We’ll be lucky if she doesn’t explode from excitement first. Her dance classes to date have been primarily creative movement, but the idea of ballet intrigues her (she happily sat through an entire production of the Nutcracker back in the winter).

There are lots of children’s books about dance – this one shows lots of different dancers.  It provides a nice introduction to the common terms, moves and items associated with ballet. This book is a hit at our house right now; I’m sure Sophie sees herself in it. She is even trying out the positions based on the illustrations! If you have a beginning dancer too – check it out!
