Last week both Blue and Green 4 y.o. groups from Bellevue kindergarten came to watch us rehearse for our school concert.

The kinder kids had the absolute best time! Their teachers said it was hard to get them to leave, they loved the dances and the music so much!

We can’t wait to do some more activities with Bellevue kinder!
