I take a dance class at Signature Dance Studio. The class that I take is a jazz class. I go there every Wednesday from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. I think that there are maybe 9 more girls in my class. We also have some recitals. Everything is very joyful and fun.
In the dance studio, we are trying to perfect leaps, splits, pirouettes, etc. For our dances, we are going to need to learn how to do these skills right, and remember how to do them because if we don’t, our dances will look sloppy and useless. My least favorite part of my dance class is when we do our warm-up stretches. We do all kinds of stretches. My least favorite stretch is the one where you sit down with your legs in front of you and try to touch your toes. It hurts real bad.
Currently, we are learning our dances for our Spring Recital near the end of the school year. Each year, the recital is called a new name. One of our songs that we are dancing to is a song from the movie Moana. The other song is going to be a patriotic song, but we don’t know which one yet. Our first plan was to have a production dance where all of the jazz classes come together to perform one dance. We were going to dance to the song One. But, this year, we are having two different recitals, and all of the jazz classes aren’t in the same one. That is why we are not doing a dance together.
We had had our Christmas Recital in December. We wore Santa hats, black pants, and red shirts. My Santa hat was pink and had lots of frilly sparkles on it. I had lots of fun at that recital. Our dance was the second to last dance in the whole show. A dance that my older sister was in was the last dance. They were dancing to Justin Bieber’s Little Drummer Boy song.
I like the Spring Recitals the most. One reason I like them the most is because we order beautiful costumes, instead of bringing them from home. Some parts of the costumes we bring from home, but most of it we order. Also, a few months after the recital, our dance teacher Katie gives each family that goes to Signature Dance Studio a CD with all of the dances from the recital on it. I love watching the dances with my sister.
We do lots of things during the year at Signature Dance Studio, from fundraising to recitals, from getting drinks of water to practicing dances. It all may sound like a lot of work and preparation, but I am proud that I am doing this.
