i've mentioned before that i absolutely love dancing. i'm so happy that i get the opportunity to dance several times each week with my local dance studio. i love being able to do ballet, pointe, jazz, hip-hip, and tap every week.
one style of dance that i really miss is lyrical. when i was younger, my mom and i took lyrical dance lessons for many years from maria triano at pa dance network. i lost touch with maria when i went to college, but my mom reconnected with maria about two years ago and started taking classes with her again. since then, i have been really missing maria's lyrical classes. for christmas my sweet parents surprised me with a private dance lesson with maria. i was beyond excited to get the chance to dance with maria again.
this past weekend i got a chance to use my christmas present from my parents. it was so amazing to have a private lyrical class with maria. i seriously spent the entire time smiling. while i was there, maria made a little video and recorded a bit of our time together. i'm so glad she thought to do that because it turned out to be such a sweet memento of the day. here are a few still screen shots from the video . . .
thanks again, mom and dad! it was awesome!
