After having a break from dancing over the weekend due to having a cold, Salem is back at the gym practising for the Kapiti Dance Comps.
Danny and Gene watched him do two of his dances. It was good having an audience as it was a good opportunity to make sure that if he made a mistake he could keep going without anyone noticing. He made a couple of little mistakes which would usually put him off a little but he kept his cool and no one could tell.
This is what we are working on this week.
|Outside the studio where he practices his dancing|
The studio is a perfect size for him and has some nicely placed fans which he really needed!!!!!
He then does a 5 minute program on the stationary bike then did some balance excercises, not too much today as he is still getting over his cold. We did walk up to the gym and back home again, so he has done more than enough. He just loves going to the gym!!!!
