This week I am a dance coach. I knew those 12 years of training would come in handy someday! And I am exceedingly glad for the large variety of styles my teachers exposed me to.
My church is doing a Performing Arts Camp this week, and I have taught about 30 elementary school kids how dance in the swing, gospel choir, and African styles. I have also helped six girls choreograph three dances in three days. Kudos to them for being able to handle that much!
So far there have been two highlights for me:
1. Seeing Sam stand on his toes in a meerkat pose for twenty-five minutes straight.
2. Little Esther's reply to one of my questions, which shall be the quote for today's post.
Me: Does anyone here know some cool tricks or acrobatics we can do in this dance?
Esther: Ooh, ooh, Miss Carla! I can pick up things with my toes!
Ah, yes. I think I've quoted Esther several times on this blog. She's quite the little character.
