back from dance camp

We jengaed:
And the kids worked hard:

We caught fireflies at night:

And went for a swim in some falls that some of the local girls took us to:

Smalls Falls

Karma was lavished with love and attention:

The kids learned the music for the capoeira performance:

And they made art when there was time:

Matt's collaboration with some of the kids at dance camp

Their final performance was excellent, starting with the ballet portion of the show:

dance camp - ballet

dance camp - ballet

And a fencing performance in which they pretended to be pirates:

The capoeira performance went beautifully:

They did so well, and Matt was so proud of them:

They rocked the hip-hop performance:

dance camp - hip-hop dancing - final performance

And the kids from Citylights Boston just blew it out of the park in their final sequence:

dance camp - hip-hop dancing - final performance

We celebrated out in the parking lot with sparklers and lots of laughter and screaming:

We made friends and had a fantastic time. The kids were a delight to work with. It was all so much fun, albeit a lot of hard work for the kids and the instructors. We're hoping to do it again next year.

By the way, the only project I worked on while we were there was my someday-flower-garden quilt:

flower garden - growing

But more on that later....

Wow! It looks like you had a great time! And your quilt looks beautiful so far! The red swirly hexagon is my favorite--did you match up the swirls deliberately, or is that just how they turned out?

maritza said...

Thanks s.g.! :)
And yes, I did match up the swirls when making a flower with that red swirly print because I liked the way it replicated movement within a static shape.

Melissa said...

the quilt is back! yay!

Sonya said...

That just looks like a wonderful way to spend the summer - going to camp all over again. You had me at the fireflies.

And the swirly red one is still my absolute favorite!
