They’re Movin’ On Up!

I mentioned Kevin’s dance competition yesterday, but I wanted to expound on it a bit now that I’m less stressed and we have better video.

The contest includes every school in Philadelphia who participated in the dance program. Teachers would come to the schools, instruct the kidds, and see how they applied the skills. The semifinals were yesterday, and as I mentioned before, Kevin and Grace’s team moved on. (Kevin and Grace are the dance team captains – as well as best friends.)

In addition to the waltz, the captains are permitted to perform for the audience. In this case, Kevin and Grace did the merengue – a dance perfected in My Blue Heaven – an fabulous film with Steve Martin and Rick Moranis. Suffice to say, Kevin and Grace wowed. They’re dressed in blue below.

The kids cheering for them at the beginning is also heartwarming.

After the captains’ dance, Kevin and Grace’s team learned their fate…

Gold! They’re moving on to the semester finals, which are slated for next Monday.

I met Kevin at the bus stop after school yesterday, and he was absolutely thrilled. The boy is a natural at this, and hopefully they’ll do well next week.

  1. Congrats to the dynamic duo! Judging by all of your children’s accomplishments you have a very talented family. That indicates a good upbringing and probably also good genetics. I’ll give you some credit for the upbringing, the genetics not so much. Your lovely missus gets all those kudos……………

  2. I want to write something witty, but just can’t find the words. All I can say is good on Kevin and Grace. They need to just keep doing what they are doing. Where are the comments from Kari and his namesake? (See, I do pay attention now and then.)
