Cam is taking ballet, tap, jazz, pom & musical theatre
Aly is taking ballet, pre-pointe, lyrical, tap, jazz, hip-hop, pom, musical theatre. She also signed up for modern, but there is a good chance that will be delayed in starting (we find out today) & I think I am hoping it isn't starting yet! She also does her Jazz Competition every Saturday for hour and half.
If modern is a go, then Aly will be taking 10 classes. Crazy girl! Normally I don't allow her to quit classes, but if she decides it is to much, then I will let her quit certain classes. Ballet & lyrical are a definite though.
Cam is taking a lot this year as well at 5 classes. I tried talking her into just doing the pom which is also a jazz class, but she was dead set on taking all 5. Will see how she does. Last year she took 3 1/2 hour classes & then from Feb - July she also took an extra 1 hour long acrobat class. These classes only end up being about a half hour longer & she is a year older, so it will be interesting. She just goes 2 days, it's my crazy Aly that will be there all 5 days they are open.
We are going to a new studio that is awesome. I have to get myself a laptop, they have free internet connections. I keep hinting to my dad, but he isn't going for it, lol.
Oh & the best part, the studio has a cap of only $110 a month per kid. Can't beat that price. Competition will be $160 for classes & then comp fees which I think are going to scare me when they start rolling in!
* Oh & just in case people do read my blog, I'm not one of those crazy over scheduling moms. Both my girls are very active & go crazy if they don't have things to do. Aly started dancing right before she turned 4 & Cam started right after she turned 3. I let them decide what they want to take & I don't push them. Well except for ballet, * if * they dance, they have to take ballet. I had one of Aly's teachers criticize me for letting her take 3 classes in first grade & dance in a Nutcracker performance. She told me I had her in too much, that was during conference. When the 100 days of school came up, they did a little song for a teacher meeting. That teacher came & found me to tell me how wrong she was, Aly really shined on stage & that is what she was meant to do. Last year, Aly was a bit worn out & she cut down her classes from 6 to 3 & then added a 4th right after Christmas. She told me she wanted a little break & was going to go all out this year. The competition is the newest thing & I have a feeling it is going to be a bit too much & this will probably be her only year doing it. I think the experience will be good for her. Ok just wanted to add that, so I don't get any nasty comments
