Plenty of youngsters spend their summers at sports camps, but have you ever head of a break dancing class for kids? That's what Ava and Adrien have been spending the past couple of weeks doing.
Ava, 5, says she is "happy," when she is learning to dance. "It's just fun. I like to do rolls and handstands."
Ava is not alone in her enthusiasm. She and Adrien, who is also 5, both take weekly lessons at Back Bar at 1102 Broad Street.
"My favorite part is when I started," Adrien said.
They both have been dancing for a few months, and each had their own way of discovering the skill.
Adrien first saw break dancing on the television show "Yo Gabba Gabba," and Ava first learned of it after seeing a video on her mom's phone.
Their parents and instructors couldn't be more impressed.
"I think it's pretty cool," said Eric Kuh, Adrien's mother. "A lot of people have asked me about it and they think it's pretty cool, too. We're pretty excited about it."
"I'm proud of her. Pretty shocked at her moves," Ron Robinson, Ava's dad, said. "She's very good at her age. Way better than I am."
"Ava and Adrian are awesome and they're wonderful kids I've never seen kids that are so eager to learn. They're really going home and they practice and their moves are getting way better."
The two will have a chance to strut their stuff in front of a much bigger audience at the Good Foot 7 Break-Dance Battle held next Saturday.
