This Thursday was the Elementary School's May Day Dance Festival. Each year, every teacher chooses a song, comes up with simple costumes, choreographs and teaches his or her class a dance. The teachers are amazingly creative, and the students show off talent you would never see on any report card. Here Samuel is doing a "Promenade" with the neighbor girl.
Samuel had this dance down pat. It recalled memories of him getting out in the aisle at Lex and Lil's clogging recitals when he was three, and just goin' to town.
Lily, Stayin' Alive. I loved this dance. And I loved her scarf. That's a look that girl can definately pull off! She told me, "Mom, we're supposed to dress disco, you know, colorful and sparkley, because that's how they dressed in the olden days." Wow. That's the first time it's been brought to my attention that I was born in the "Olden Days."
Lexi did a very graceful waltz to "Moon River", and then the graduating 5th graders got to thread the May Pole. I already speant her bytes on the Swing video, but rest assured, she braided that May Pole flawlessly.
