StoryBook Ballet Dance Camp {Frozen}

Well, nothing like letting two weeks pass without updating the blog.  I wish I could say that it was just because we were so super busy that I haven't had the time to post anything, but unfortunately that's not the case.  Some crazy illness took over my body and I seriously spent 10+ days in a weird, fevered and fatigued fog.  I'm so very grateful to my parents who swept in like Rockstars and kept Sydney and Olivia at their house for an entire week while I slept and ached and tried to get better.  The poor girls got some version of my sickness {or I got a crazier version of theirs?} and ended up being put on antibiotics for ear infections.  So, my parents had to nurse them back to health as well.  But, naturally, they did that AND pretty much potty-trained Sydney, so...maybe I should get sick more often?  Uh, definitely not!

Anyway, poor Olivia missed out on a week of summer camps at Wee Blessings that I had signed her up for, but she DID make it to her StoryBook Ballet Dance Camp.  She did this camp two years ago and we absolutely loved it.  It was the Merida theme then, and this year it was all about Frozen!  {See two years ago here.  Trust me, you want to click that link.}  And, to make this year even better, she got to do it with her sweet friend, Brooke.

So, here are a few pictures from a day at camp and then some pictures from the last day where they did a little performance.

➹ Sydney just missed the cut-off this year, but we will FOR SURE be signing her up next year.  She was SO upset once she realized she wasn't going to be staying for the class. ➹

At the performance part of the camp, the teacher had each of the girls summarize the stories they had done each day and talk about the lessons in them.  Then they did five dances to different songs from the movie.  Two of the dances were choreographed and three of them were up for interpretation. ;)

A special thanks to Grandma Irma and Poppa Peter who gifted this class to Olivia for her birthday!  She loved it so much, and really got a lot out of the class!
