Throwback Thursday #4 - Dancing days

'll preface this by saying that even though I took dance classes for several years, I was never really very good. Especially at ballet, jazz or acrobatics (what was I thinking - my body doesn't bend!). I was actually pretty darn good at tap dancing though. I think my mom lived vicariously through me since she had always wanted (but never gotten) dance lessons when she was a little girl. She loved seeing me dressed up in all of the costumes and she saved most of them - she gave them back to me recently for the girls to dress up in. I would love to put my girls in dance lessons at some point - if they want them.

Here's my first year (and only year) of ballet:



(I'm the one in front on the left)

Here's some from various years of tap and acrobatics:










And my first year of jazz dancing (hey, it was the 80's!) - this is as far as I've gotten with my photo album scanning project in terms of dance photos.



I know - more dance costume photos than you ever wanted to see in one blog post! LOL

Great pictures. I never took dance lessons. To this day, the only way I'll get up and dance is if I've had a couple of glasses of wine! (or if I want to embarrass my dd, I'll dance like Corbin Bleu in public!) HA!
