Ever since she was about 18 months, Monica has shown an aptitude for rhythm. When she was 2, it was clear she had a very natural sense of rhythm. And now at 3, with better coordination and stamina, she is showing herself to be a great little dancer. She sings in time pretty well too. Here she is doing some salsa dancing. We do not listen to a lot of salsa, just every so often when I get in the mood to dance as I clean. When we dance I tell her to just move to the music. I don't know any real salsa steps, but she has a natural feel for it. I was impressed! At the end of movies, Monica insists on dancing to the music in the credits. Here she is at the end of "Ariel's Beginning", which was very cute by the way! Thanks for the recommendation Emily!
Later that day, we watched it again, and she showed another side I hadn't seen...ballet/modern! I'm thinking we are starting to see a real talent!
