haha! My daughter tends to do this with most events in life. Except dancing. That is the one thing she loves to do. Last night at my college graduation I looked up in the stands and there she was, pouting back at me as usual, all grump.
When I was in acting training, studying musical comedy, we were told that the one person who was off beat or doing the wrong moves would be the one everybody noticed. It’s absolutely true. I remember reading that Goldie Hawn used that to her advantage throughout her early career. Obviously this kid was a star in the making!
Did you ever tell your parents you didn’t want to do the dance recitals? I mean, I totally understand if they didn’t listen–my dad forced me to play golf off and on from ages six to fourteen, and whenever I said I didn’t like it, he said that I “hadn’t given it enough of a chance.” Finally, after a disastrous experience with a girls’ scramble league (my mom actually ended up coaching my team), I was finally allowed to quit, after my mom put her foot down and told my dad that no, I really don’t like golf. Aside from glow-in-the-dark mini golf, I haven’t played since.
