How adorable is this photo? I remember being very young and wearing the traditional black leotard and the palest of pink tights while standing at the barre. I would stare out the studio window at the library next door. I liked the idea of ballet classes, but found them too slow, so I would beg my mom to let me take more exciting dance classes. Eventually she let me try out for Super Steppers where the uniform was a red sequin leotard and white knee socks (and you had to perform the ever challenging jump splits).

Did you take dance classes as a child? Do your kids take dance lessons?

P.S. — Dancing reminds me of this amazing video. I’ve seen it a thousand times and I never get sick of it.
