Anna's preschool talent show was on Wednesday night. She had two talents - her first was playing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" on the piano (exclusively on black keys in the lower register of the piano with the damper pedal on even!) and then there was the following, documented for all time via YouTube.
The 50% of Anna that is made up of my genes is definitely on display in the choice of music. But exactly where she gets the nerve and fearlessness to dance like that in front of 40 people leaves both Heidi and me scratching our heads because neither of us are like that. Perhaps it's a recessive trait and she got both recessive alleles. (Suddenly, pea plants and Punnett squares are rushing back to me.)
And apparently, that little boy against the wall is either too scared or too enamored of Anna to even so much as move.
It's modern interpretive dance - Madge would be impressed!
I was amused by the boy running across with the mat or whatever and only at the end did I notice that very small human against the wall.
Is that you two talking at the beginning?
(Rudely answering for Dan)
That is, Steve. Dan's the only male voice, and I'm the one that says "Okay," and "she's waiting."
She practiced all week, but wouldn't let me watch.
Look at her go! I hope she never loses that fearlessness. :)
Looks like Anna was busting some moves from the video! You go, girl! :)
that is utterly adorable. i so need to reproduce!
Omigod that was fabulous! And I love how she took out the little boy who was getting into her creative space - it was a smooth and elegantly executed takedown. Her dance-fu is stronger than his poster-fu...
Go Anna!! May you never lose the dance, baby.
OMG! That was fabulous! I applauded when it was over. Go Anna!
