Jazz

Tassy does Jazz and parents are only allowed to watch the last class of the term. It's also free dress day for the girls so Tassy's not in her usual black jazz costume.

Now Tassy has been going to dancing (ballet and jazz) since she was 20 months old. That's right! She has no talent but hey, you can't be good at everything LOL. She loves it and we love watching her on stage. She is a real performer and isn't shy at all. I'll never forget her first concert when she was 3½. She was backstage about to come on for her routine... the lights went out in anticipation... and she shouted at the top of her voice "HEY WHO TURNED OUT THE LIGHTS?!" The whole auditorium could hear and everyone laughed (she is not known for a soft voice). She did so many funny things in that routine. Like run up to the edge of the stage, spy us in the audience and shout to us at the top of her voice. We were laughing so much we had tears running down our faces.

Oh OK. Just cos I know you want to see... here is a pic of her in her costume from that concert.


So I got a bit sidetracked didn't I. I was going to share some photos from her recent jazz class.

Touch your toes... come on... you can do it!


Now prepare to take off. That's right, keep it up!


Jazz hands in the air. YEAH!


Now the splits. Is that the best you can do?


And releve. Hey, check out that releve! She's pretty good at that!

Oh.....and OMGOSH Miss Yvette.....your table makeover and pyrex collection are just totally divine.
I always look for pyrex...but never find it....obviously it was not in vogue around this area at the time maybe.

Tassy was so cute back then. I think that's her only concert we missed. It has become such a tradition for us and the beginning of Christmas to see Tassy in her concert. Coming up soon.
I'm so glad she has persisted with it.
Love Mum

Daryl and I rolled around the floor laughing at your comments about Tassy's talent and not-so-quiet voice. I am so glad she is persevering with her dance, you don't have to be grade 1, just have a ball and enjoy the exercise and creativity. Love your blog AAJ
