Back In Action!

Hi Friends, I know it’s been so long since I wrote and I have missed it. And you. After having my baby I went back to teaching a full schedule in 7 weeks. What I didn’t anticipate was that I needed a longer maternity leave from writing. I really missed it, but just couldn’t find time to sit down and …

Written Recipes!

After I wrote about doing these recipes with my littles, many of you wanted the written ones to try with your own littles. I wrote them out for you and you can download and print them! Link below! 🙂 Dance Recipes! I hope you enjoy them! I would love to hear how it goes! 🙂

Teaching Dance In Finland

The Around The World project is inspired by a mothering around the world series that I really enjoyed reading. I thought it would be a wonderful idea to see how teaching dance varies around the world. Each month I will post an interview from a different country. I’m so excited to learn about the way dance is taught in other …

Wands

I remembered them and thought February would be a great time to cook up some dances. 🙂 I split the class in 2 groups. I turned …

Themes

Do you use a theme for your showing, performance, informance, recital? This will be my 4th year doing a celebration with my littles on the stage. The first year, I didn’t use a theme mostly because I was just testing out to see if putting two year olds on stage would even work. The second year, the theme was friendship. …

Baby Wearing

Happy New Year Friends! I’m still enjoying time with little one, but plan to trickle back to teaching in the next few weeks. I have been trying out wearing baby in this wrap a mom of one of my students so generously made me! It’s so comfy and instantly puts baby to sleep. He’s like a snug bug in there! …
