Musim panas akhirnya tiba. Setelah NYC penuh dengan kegalauan cuaca yang membuat kami berpikir kalau musim dingin tidak akan pergi, akhirnya matahari tidak lagi malu-malu bersinar.
Seperti biasa, musim panas identik dengan kegiatan outdoor dan aneka festival. Termasuk di sekolah anak-anak. Kali ini, seperti juga tahun lalu, PS 122 kembali menggelar festival dansa tahunan yang melibatkan seluruh anak-anak dari kelas pre-K sampai kelas 8.
Apalagi karena diadakan di halaman sekolah plus di tengah bulan Ramadhan, bagi kami yang menjalani :).
Last year, we have the same festival and Bo participated in that collosal dancing exercise. Obi was still at her pre-K in Mushroom Daycare at that time so she didn't join this event.
But this year, both of them are participating in the festival and they love it, although they never wanted to practice that at home as they didn't want to 'spoil the fun."
The theme for this year's dance is Beach Party Bonanza.
Hmmm.. What would you like to have in this beach-themed dance? I suppose they have all those up-beat songs and properties
We have two sessions of the festival.
One started at 8.45 for Pre-K to the 3rd Grade, which include Obi's kindergarten class. The big classes' performance started at 9.45. So we had an interval in between.
And how we loved the show.
Tell you something.. In an event like this, parents are flocking since early morning and some of them have brought folded chairs and sat there in the front part. I came on time but it was considered late so that I couldn't get the best spot for taking pictures and recording videos. Lucky me, there's a bench near the yard so I stood up there and got a better view :).
Obi was dancing to the song "Twist your frown upside down" from the Teen Beach 2 movie.
I can see Obi really love to dance. Although she was busy keeing her blue hat from falling but she was dancing alright. Good job, Obi :).
And our DJ was surely having fun that day, making sure all those lovely beats accompany the steps and movement of our kids.
So, don't you think we all were having fun in this dance festival? We sure were!
And we just can't wait what the kids will have next year.
Do you have dance festival as well in you kids' school? How do you like it?
