A Flight of Fancy

Just a quick warm-up pre spontaneous dance routine

Nieve loves to dance. Whenever she hears music a smile spreads across her face and she starts to move her body to whatever rhythm suits her. Sometimes her moves are fluid and graceful, others are aggressive and warrior-like with stomps, deep squats, and scowls.

Pretty good balance for a toddler; I doubt I could hold steady on my tip toes like that

When it comes to spontaneous dancing, music is optional. A few days ago we were enjoying the quiet, fading sunlight on a bluff above the Pacific when Nieve started into her routine. The dance looked to be a combination of modern and ballet, but the choreography was simply Nieve expressing herself through large body movements. Nieve's little dances are a treat for us to watch and many times we feel inspired enough that we jump up and join her (especially Ronan)!

We're not sure what she's doing here but we've coined it the 'seagull'
