Tonight we got all the rest of the dance pictures and practices done. I can not post any of Anthony's pictures from Hip Hop because he does not like the costume. He didn't want me to post any of those pictures so I won't.
During this week the kids take pictures and then do a quick practice in their costumes. Larissa was practicing her solo and some girls from another class were watching. One girl said that her solo was boring. Her solo is classical ballet, Larissa's favorite dance style. Larissa heard the comment. She later told me that her eyes welled up but she didn't cry.
This really upset me. She was already nervous about doing a solo but also excited. This is something she wanted to tackle. It seems like our culture is turning away from respect and it isn't very pretty.
