This past weekend my Daughter had her very first dress rehearsal for Hula. Her Hula Halau will be performing at the Hawaiian May Day Festival this coming Saturday. I feel so overwhelmed with pride and love for her. At six years old, she has really applied herself and is doing so great as a little dancer. I envy her tiny soul, because I was never a dancer growing up as a child. My parents always had us in Martial Arts, so I spent a good chunk of my life sparring and going to tournaments. This is definitely a whole new experience and element for me, and I'm so thrilled to share this with her.
She has inspired me so much that I have decided to take the challenge and begin Tahitian classes.
Last night I went to my very first class and it was so much fun. I never knew I had it in me, but then again I come from a long line of talented dancers, my mom being one of them. I feel this is the start of a whole new journey, allowing myself to venture out and learn new things, as well as the start to new bonds formed with my daughter. My youngest daughter is still too young, but once she is of age, she will begin Hula as well. Its an awesome feeling to be bonded with your child, she really inspires me. What makes the experience even more special is that my sister & mother also take it with me, as well as a few of my nieces and cousin. It has become a family affair, which makes it all the more special. I'm so excited for all the memories and things to come...
