The adventures of Sophia & Josephine

By:  Vanessa van Rensburg

Not too many moons ago, we met two young girls who simply loves dance!

We know they love dance because just like ballerinas who dance on stage in big theatres, they too always wear their hair in ballet buns.  They also carry bags that say "Love To Dance".

Sophia and Josephine now lives at the Love to Dance studios in Merritt, where they meet new people every day.  They spend many hours watching young dancers practise their steps, exercises, combinations and dances, from sweet little Ballerinis with brand new ballet shoes, to girls who dance on their tippy toes, or as the ballet teacher calls it, 'En Pointe'.  They especially admire the boy-dancers who can jump so very high! 

Since moving to the Love To Dance studios, they have also learnt about other dance styles (or as the dance teachers call it, 'genres') such as Jazz, Lyrical Contemporary, Spanish and Line Dancing, which would explain all the shoes some of their dance friends had to carry in their dance bags.

To Sophia and Josephine, every day is an adventure, especially when they get to travel with their dance friends, to places they haven't been before.

Don't forget to say 'Hi!', the next time you visit the Love To Dance Academy studios in Merritt.
