About six months ago Abi got hooked on watching Angelina Ballerina. Ever since then she has been dancing around, wherever she can find enough space. We bought her a dance lesson on DVD a while back, and she ate that up until she got bored with it. Ben and I have always thought her dancing is cute, and have even noticed that she’s been getting a little bit better lately.
But last night! Last night she asked Ben to dance with her (as she often does when he gets home from work in the evenings) and she displayed some pretty good moves. Ben and I kept looking at each other like, “Where did she learn this?” and, “How did she get so good?”. I manged to get some of it on video to show off. There’s some goofing off mixed in, but you’ll get to see the fancy footowork a couple times.
(aren’t you proud of me for figuring out how to post this?!)
Ben and I have wanted to get her enrolled in dance classes, and we looked at it a while back but soon realized that they were far to expensive for our budget- to the tune of $120 for 1 semester (12 classes). After seeing what we saw last night, we are determined to find a way for her to explore this interest and natural talent she has. We are turning to you, our family and friends, to ask if you’ll help support Abi’s dancing. If you can, would you consider donating to the “Send Abi to Dance Class” fund? I messed around with html code for a bit, and made this fancy “Donate” button as you’ll see below and in the right sidebar.
If you are able to give anything at all, we (and she) will be so grateful. We’re trying to get $160 raised by the end of January in order to enroll her in the classes (and buy ballet slippers, tap shoes and a leotard) beginning Feb 6th.
Thank you SO much, friends!
