Don't you just a love a company that inspires girls to dream?
Ivivva is the girls' division of Lululemon. They put on FREE events for girls year round like the ivivva Coast to Coast Summer Festival my girls attended this summer. This is the second year ivivva has put on the Dreams Dance Convention and this year was even better than the last.
Geared towards intermediate dancers ages 8-14, the ivivva Dreams Dance Convention brings some of the best dance instructors in the area for a day that's a combination of technique and inspiration.
Hip hop, jazz and contemporary were the styles the convention focused on but the lesson that was emphasized was to enjoy the journey. The instructors let the girls know that they didn't expect them to get all of the steps right the first time. But they should enjoy the journey to get it all right.
That's an important lesson for girls this age who are starting to compare themselves to others and who can get easily frustrated if they feel they are anything less than perfect.
There's even a popup boutique in case you want to do a little shopping.
While the girls absolutely LOVED the dancing, talking about dreams and goals was their favorite part. It's fun to see how determined our tweens are to achieve their dreams.
Look out, world. These girls are making big plans.
