Ryann has been in her Mommy and Me class for a few months. She has learned a lot. Her favorite things to do are hand stands and somersaults. Recently she has started being able to do the somersaults on her own. She has also learned how to jump and get both feet off the ground. Now just to get her to do it when I ask her to during class.
Ryann, being the strong willed child that she is, does not like being told what to do during dance. I try to make her do everything at least once and depending on her mood that day depends on how many more times after that we do it. I do know she is learning though, because at home she does all the things we learned during class.
The first part of class is tumbling.
Jumping on the cartwheel blockPutting her hands on the cartwheel block. She is supposed to then kick her feet up in the air and make a donkey sound. They call them "Donkey Kicks". Ryann does these a lot at home...and in the bath tub.
The last part of class they go into the dance room and sing songs. The song they always start with is "Twinkle, Twinkle" and they all get a star. Ryann loves this. She has started singing it and asking for me to sing it to her.
Ryann and Maycee doing the moves for Twinkle, Twinkle.Mrs. Marci is very popular and the girls like to go sit by her.
Recently they started doing a lady bug dance where they get to wear a little lady bug costume. I am quite surprised that Ryann actually will wear the headband during the song.
