My 3 year old grand daughter made her first stage appearance on Saturday evening in a dance production at The Public Hall in Witham. Yes, the same Witham which is currently enjoying fame on X Factor. Whether she follows in the footsteps of Olly Murr remains to be seen.
I was a very proud grandmother watching her every step as she completed a faultless "Mickey Mouse Club March" and then later on in the first half "You've Got a Friend in Me". No photos I'm afraid - a sign of the times!
The teacher also appeared in various parts of the production and I can certainly say there was plenty of tap and tap and tap tap!
Whilst the art of dance is not quite my thing, my grand daughter certainly enjoyed herself and it's great that there are people out there who have the time, the patience and the willingness to teach.
A good evening, rounded off at home with a glass of red wine, watching X factor and cheering Olly on!
