Ella Bella - 1st Dance Class


My mom registered Ella in a summer dance class for the month of June and she had her first class on Friday. It's not a dance technique class. It's more of the kids doing different activities to different songs. Ella loved every minute of it! She was definitely in her element.

















This first video is of their running warm up. Amanda always says Ella is going to be a track star and I think she might be right. :-) I love at the end how she's looking right at us to make sure we are watching.

This was Ella's first time to play the symbals. She does a great job but then at the end gets a little confused as to what to do with them. It's hilarious!

How stinking cute! She was so funny with her cymbals. Yes, I have always thought Ella was going to be a track star and now I'm even more convinced.

Sarah took creative movements when she was three. She loved it and then took dance for two years. It has really helped with her coordination. She learned how to ride a bike when she was four, I really think dancing helped her balance.

Ella looks like she's going to catch on very quickly! :)

Gracious she is so cute!
I love the videos
I was giggling from the very beginning :)
My favorite is when she puts the cymbals on her cheeks - both sets of them - LOL

Have a great day

Too Cute! I love the cymbals video! Ella is growing up to be more than beautiful! I haven't visited here lately (or anywhere else, my life is so full... in a good way!) so she looks so big to me!
