Winton is 2, Clara 4. I thought it would be good to have them do some dancing (in other words, I was shamed by the colleague whose kids are the same age and do dance, violin and swimming classes).
I hired a graduating dance student from the college at which I work to come to our house once a week.
She came over last week: Clara stretched a bit; Winton hid in the kitchen and shrieked.
She came over again yesterday: Clara insisted on putting a tutu on her blanket (ie stuffing blankie through the central hole where a girl's body is supposed to go) and then lay on the floor immobile (much worse than last week); Winton ran around shrieking (much better than last week).
Is it worth it? Shall we persevere?
