Dancing (Drama) Queen

The other morning ThingOne had us both in stitches while dancing around the back room to Part Of That World, a song from The Little Mermaid. At one particular point ("...why does it...what's the word?...BURN.") she added a dramatic flourish from the movie by throwing her head back.

Anne said "We are NOT paying for the little drama queen to go to stage school - she can dream on." I didn't think she needed to be taught any more about showing off for an audience.

A few days later she was doing it again so I made a short video.

She made us stand in the kitchen, and told us off when we dared enter the back room to get a better view as she disappeared out of the door.

She then gave us an extra treat by twirling at the end of the song. The song ends quite slowly so she had to do more twirling that she probably anticipated, leading to a particularly graceful finish...
