We're In The Mood For Dancing…

Well I’m not, me and dancing definitely don’t go together!
During half term we were invited along to Pineapple Dance studios to meet up with other bloggers and their children to learn a dance routine from the Annie movie,  choreographed by Richard Marcel.
It was a last minute thing so the kids weren’t prepared – to the point that Shannon (my eldest niece) only had crocs on her feet so needed to borrow some old trainers from me (and I’m a size or Keep reading…
