Brooke called me at the beginning on the summer to see if we wanted to sign Ruby up for a summer workshop of singing and dancing. It was two weeks of intense practicing, in the which the kids learned about 10 songs (word for word), as well as the coordinating dance moves. At the end of the two weeks, they put on a fun performance for all the parents. Ruby had a blast. Each day of practice was dedicated to a different theme. The kids were encouraged to participate by dressing up in accordance with the assigned theme. We really got into the theme days at our house...
Happy Days - dress for the 50's
Peace and Love - or "hippy day"
Tacky Day - silly, mismatched
Safari Day - wild and crazy jungle attire
Rock Star Day - dress like the rock stars you are!
This is just one of their many acts. Ruby and her cousin, Bennett, were a little shy during the performance...but I thought they were adorable together in this little number. They are on the front row, far left.
I'm so excited that Ruby will be involved in this little show choir full-time. She had such a great time this summer, and is still singing and dancing to the songs she learned. I hope that this will help her develop a love and appreciation for music...which I have no doubt, will bless and enrich her life.
