Dance

img_6674-1We have two beautiful daughters who have been dancing almost as long as they have been walking.   Our eldest Kennedy started dancing at the Maryland School for Ballet and Peabody at the age of 3.  At that time, we lived in Baltimore City of Belair Road. I would drive to Harford County every Saturday morning just to take my big girl to dance class.   She was invited to study at Peabody while I was working at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine so her classes were not far from my office.  Not long after the birth of our 2nd daughter, we moved to Baltimore County.  Kennedy continued to study at Peabody Institute, and I ran into a former co-worker and friend Adrienne Watson Carver.  She and her husband owned Studio A, and we visited the studio and attended a recital. The next semester, we registered Kennedy, and Olivia was almost old enough to start their ‘Intro to Dance’ classes.  I took the girls to class every Monday and Saturday.  Olivia watched her sister, and Kennedy would come  home and teach her sister every movement, every dance.  The rest is as they say, history!  Eleven years later, my girls continue to study at Studio A, have earned the honor of being on the Studio A Dance Competition Team and study dance and Tae Kwon Do.
