When I watch her dance .
It's like a flower blossoming
Like black magic
Like a beautiful symphony
She is so incredibly talented
And so incredibly happy when she dances
Last night was the first mid year show of the new competition team Beauty joined in sept for hip hop in Montreal . Completely separate and in Addition to the dance program she is involved in as her program at school
It is a huge commitment as already her almost professional dance program at school is demanding throughout the day and most days Afterschool . Add two evenings of hip hop to this at a different location and many weekends days and evenings on weekends and you have a very full schedule
Probably not the best idea for a girl who is struggling right now in school ? Or how is not overly committed to academics ?Not as connected to home life and family ?
My head often says no
My heart mostly says yes
I listen to my heart in this one
Simply put : it's her thing
She comes alive because of dance
She is one with dance
Dance is her
I am not sure she would be her .. Without it all at this high level
Especially hip hop
Beauty does all kinds of dance from classical ballet , to jazz , to folklore to salsa and to the one they do on Spain that I forget the name of . She is great at all kinds of dance And much more
Hip hop though is where I see it is her thing . Completely and definitely . A pure and innate and natural talent
Each time I watch a show I am amazed
Was great day yesterday to just be at home after such a long exhausting and excruciating week of business travel and stomach flu combined . Did the tree and turkey stuffing and delicious new recipe for short team cookies and Christmas cards .( well the cooking part maybe hubby did and I helped and made our Xmas cards ? )
Had dinner with all the boys and chase sweet girlfriend who came to eat and show with us . Such a great girl and fun to chat with her and have another girl around too .
Sunday was a great day after a hellish week .
Thank goodness for the weekends to relax and rejuvenate and to connect with the people we love
And to watch our talented dancing daughter in her element.
Each time I watch her it is a journey
Each time she dances like that -we discover her deeply
