    Lovely song and it reminds me when I was young and went too dancing school - long, long, long time ago. Still lovely memories though :-)

    The landscape reminds me of Norway too - thanks for sharing ;-)

  • Kim 11.11.08

    that's really kind of you Muse...will do...
    the youngest 'ballerina' on stage was 2 years old!!

    hello Mariuca...

  • Kim 11.11.08

    hi Renny...
    she's from New Zealand but was born in Georgia ..Russia...I don't know where this clip was filmed...
    haha I can see you going off to dancing lessons as a boy Renny ;)

  • John M. Mora 12.11.08

    Lovely, Kim. Been fairly sick (strp throat, yuk) and working a lot with my BlackBerry, but your site is too biiiiiig to load....too much love here?

  • emilayusof 12.11.08

    so sweet! i love your song choice, kim!

  • Kim 12.11.08

    oh I hope you're feeling better John...haha too much love ...I think it may be too many widgets!!!

    hi Emila is a very sweet song isn't it :) :)

  • Lynda Lehmann 12.11.08

    How adorable, Kim, and it's nice to see photos of more of your family!

    I fondly remember our daughter's early years of being involved in tap, jazz and ballet! Now those years are long gone....

  • Lilly 12.11.08

    How gorgeous are the baby ballerinas Kim, just lovely. It's great your neices are getting a lot of family support at their concert too - gosh I cannot imagine the work that must go into all this. My neices have been dancing since they were 3 and are now in their early 20s. I love the song too!

  • Kim 12.11.08

    I know the feeling Lynda :)
    Charlotte was a toddler when she started and even learnt from me for a while....she taught dance for a few years with my Sister too......but eventually gave it away...the training was invaluable though...

  • Kim 12.11.08

    they are gorgeous Lilly could take them all home....
    and 4 boys too...
    only outnumbered by 546 girls....
    ballet can be very addictive!!!
    are your nieces making careers for themselves in dance?..
    I noticed the renewed interest in dance since the 'so you think you can dance' show aired here...
