When she was in junior high and starting high school, Kat was a very serious dancer on a full scholarship at a local dance academy, spending at least 12 hours a week in various dance classes, from jazz to tap to lyrical to ballet (pointe) to hip-hop. She stopped dancing for the last two years of high school because she'd stopped loving it, but has recently taken a few classes in college, just for fun. The director of the college's dance department asked her to join their dance company, which will have a big performance in May (which is when this piece will be performed in all its glory:).
Last night, the college's dance classes put on a performance. Here's Kat and friends dancing to "Die Another Day":
I'm glad Kat's dancing again, and so glad that she's enjoying it again. Between her photography (here, here, and here), her dance, and her painting (which she hasn't nurtured for years, but what talent!), she's definitely our artsy-fartsy kid!
