Elliot’s stage // Fireflies Dance

[vimeo w=590 h=330]

For the last couple months, Elliot has been taking an extracurricular Jazz dance class every wednesday morning at school. It is led by the school’s dance teacher—who does a wonderful job. The class culminated in this dance performance set to Owl Service’s “Fireflies” . . .

Another dancing Kate date!

When Kate and Elliot get together, they often find a reason to dance—this time it was dancing along to The Nutcracker.

Another Kate date—this one replete with gingerbread cookie-making and French musical-watching/reenacting!

Christmas is coming.

In one weekend, the Christmas season kicked off: Santa riding on his vintage firetruck, crafts and treats at the Community Center, Night Before Christmas ballet recital, tree hunting, tree dressing and cookie decorating.


We love the Sonoma Academy of Dance Arts.  Living in a cozy, charming, old home just off the plaza with an “enchanted” garden out back and wonderful light inside, it’s been the home to dance classes for Elliot (including ballet—see above) as well as host to summer camps and film festival childcare.  One of our favorite gems of Sonoma!
