A dancer

My girl child has been dancing practically all her life.


She started as a young thing, at 3 or 4, and hasn't stopped since.




We've gone to many many performances, and been so proud every time.




She danced through college.




And since she graduated college, she's found a new passion -- tango!


I think she will be a dancer all her life.  From the time she was a baby and could first sit upright, she had a dancer's posture.  She would sit up straight as a broomstick.  She was born to dance.

Happy birthday, my sweet girl.  Love you so so much.

I wish her all the best life can give ! It's lovely that she could follow her attitude and that you have supported her in doing this...I was born to be a dancer too since I was a little child and I was accepted by the Opera Theatre of Rome when I was only 10 years old *but* father said " No, you must study " so all ended because he didn't understand anything...and this has changed and signed my life forever.

Ah the dance. I just love it. I stopped ballet in my teens when I became 5'11". Couldn't do such moves nowadays of course. I still feel it inside though. Very hard to explain. Happy, Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter.
