Dance mom

I am a dance mom. Proudly. Not that I am living my dreams through my daughter, but that I was lucky to get a daughter with the same passion and gift as mine. She is blessed to have the opportunities I never had to develop and grow in this form of art. We are busy with her dance but fulfilled. Especially, when around this time of the year, she gets to showcase her work and then you see that all the longs hours, the drives, the time, the sacrifices are paying off. She truly is a beautiful and talented dancer.

Because of copyright issues, I wasn’t allowed to photograph as the professional pictures were taken, nor to film her performances, but I was able to sneak in the dressing rooms to take a few pictures that I will happily share with you.  So this is pretty much half of my world:


Her ballet routine “I won’t say I’m in love” from the movie Herculesballarina

Her Jazz routine: “Born to be wild”jazz


Her ballroom routine “Skadoosh” from the movie Kung Fu Pandapartners


One of the hardest steps for a pair of almost 8- year-olds to master: The Dipthedrop
