Dance has many forms and while ballet or jazz may not be considered a sport, it's definitely a form of dance and not interpretive theater. I've always considered free dances closer to jazz/modern forms of dance than Standard and Latin dances, whereas ODs used to be more like Standard and Latin dances.

I love that little blue dress of hers!
I love that blue dress too. She's so adorable in it.
I received an email from the Classroom Champions org. updating me on the program. One of the teachers reported that her class had sent a question to D&W about what struggles they may have had in school as young students. In response Meryl revealed that she had been diagnosed as dyslexic when she was in the third grade further talked about the difficulties she encountered in learning to read. The teacher indicated that Meryl's response had been a great help to one of her students who is also dyslexic. It's another nice story about a lovely young women that I thought some of you would be interested in.
So much to admire about her! What a hard worker she must be in school, attending a top college and her profiency in foreign languages. She really is an amazing woman.

I'm so glad to see Meryl and Charlie participating in programs like this. I'm sure their classrooms are so excited with each communication. And it must be wonderful for Meryl to see how her story is relevant and encouraging to a child! She and Charlie are such great role models.

I have been on the fence for months but with the clock ticking, I have realized I will kick myself if I pass up this opportunity to see Meryl and Charlie skate. So Omaha, here I come. (This is what credit cards are for right?)
at the picture of what Charlie looks like in the morning.
