Get on your dancin' shoes...

Some of you may know I've been looking for dance classes for Erik for almost two years now, but they were never close enough, or didn't offer the kind of dance he seemed interested in (if you could even call it an interest)... Well, just by chance today I found a place close by that offers tap dance classes for children!

I had been discussing with a friend the various gymnastics classes in this area, as her daughter was already doing gymnastics and her son was also interested. She had checked out a place just down the street from us, but found them to be rather unreliable when it came to returning calls. Then one day she found that her local YMCA offered gymnastics classes, and so I also checked out their site today, and lo and behold, they also offer a wide range of other programs including various dance classes such as tap dance! (they also do trampolining, but I'm not going to tell Erik about that *just* yet (though I did trampolining when I was ten and it was great for me)...

In fact, this place seems to offer EVERYTHING! Dance, gymnastics, trampolining, yoga, marshall arts, and swimming!!! All at a reasonable rate (within market expectation anyway)... So, now I can offer Erik the opportunity to do exactly what he has spoken of doing many times...

Luey could start doing gymnastics in the middle of the year, too (gymnastics, I think, would suit him more than it would suit Erik)... I might even do a yoga class!!!
