Dancing Queens!

Just when I think life couldn't get any better, today happened.

Chloe started dance.

It never ceases to amaze me what life has to offer.... Chloe in dance class? WOW.....



It was so special to be in a room where wheelchairs, DAFO's, and walkers were the norm, yet dance wasn't out of the question!!!....


Each child was assigned a 'shadow' to help them learn and do the moves. Chloe's shadow was Rachel, a very sweet 14-year-old girl. She was very kind and comfortable with Chloe because she has two siblings with a genetic disorder who are in wheelchairs. Chloe just adored her!....


Chloe was a pretty big fan of Lisa, the teacher, as well....


They did stretches and warm-ups....




And there was lots of laughing, giggling and chatting....

THANK YOU, Dance Image! We loved the class and look forward to new friendships, dancing and fun!!!....

I heard about these classes at Dance Image just after your original post about Chloe being in a dance class and wondered if that was where you were taking her (it is just down the street from me). As happy as I am for Chloe, I'm maybe more happy for you!
