My daughter tried out for her school's dance team today. She took a 3 day clinic to teach her the routine, and some basic dance moves. She hasn't taken dance formally, only gymnastics when she was very young.
I have always taught the kids that if you won't know until you try...and Carmen has definitely proven that she has listened to me.
She is very courageous. Taking that first step is always the hardest. She did her best. She didn't make it. But she tried, and she enjoyed it.
I am so proud of her. =) Encourage your children - 'cause ya just never know.
