Lesson Number One

Since October, Joy taught a beginners dance class in our homeschool group, leading up to the performance at our Christmas party in mid December.  The girls ranged in age from 4 - 11.  Not only was it a learning experience for the girls in the class, it was just as much so for Joy, as she choreographed and lead the class.  It was challenging at times teaching the wide age range a beginning dance class, but she loved those girls and enjoyed teaching the class.  

Her dance was a blend of dance and martial arts since their song was from Mulan:  Lesson Number One.  For the dance, Joy "played the part" of Mulan with the girls following her lead.  They dressed in their best Chinese attire for the performance.

Everyone did a great job!  I was proud of my Joy, as well as all the girls in the class!

Joy is quite the little lady. Do we see a dancer or instructor in her future Tammy? It is wonderful that she takes such interest in others and she wants to share her talent and passions with so many.
You are a lucky momma to have such a sweet and talented daughter.

Good Job, Joy!

Leah Kate would have loved to take lessons from Joy! She took dance when she was younger, but after we moved a few years back, we never got back into it.

Love the costumes!

Hi Tammy,
That is just adorable. I really think that Miss Joy is such a little talent. I remember watching her dance on the streets when you went to get little Luke. She just has such a natural ability! I love her costume! So cute.
We are getting more snow today! Are you all melted?
