Keep dancing

At parent-teacher conferences last week, your teacher told us she knows everything is going well with you when you’re dancing. Your feet are constantly tapping when you’re at your desk or standing in line. When you’re not dancing, that means something is bothering you.

It was a helpful insight. So now I try to remember that when I hear you constantly tapping around the house, which is usually from when you wake up until you go to bed. That means all is right (and that I shouldn’t be annoyed by the constant tapping — it’s a good thing.)

Last week you helped out with a campus photo shoot. You were instructed to walk down the stairs, and instead you instinctively danced down them. This perfectly captured your dancing mood.

All is right in the world when you’re dancing, which is a gene you get from Jess Cigelske.

I’m excited for your big competition this weekend. There will be crazy early mornings, a lot of stress and probably a few meltdowns (from all of us). But it will be worth it if it makes you happy.

All is right as long as your feet are moving. Keep dancing.
