Jump -n- Jive at Southeastern State University....

On Saturday night the Jump-n-Jive team performed at Southeastern State University during the men's half-time of basketball. It was their first performance of the season, and usually it is pretty packed at the college games, but as you can see on the guest side there weren't very many people.

As always the girls were fun to watch. I tried to upload a video of one of Lexi's routines with four other girls but blogger wouldn't do it. So instead, here is a snippet of Lexi and a partner doing "The Wheel". They had been doing it for a while before Alan started filming but you can see a glimpse. You would think they would get tangled up but they don't.

That is so incredible. Do you think Lexi and some of the girls will keep it up to some extent in middle school. I guess it would have to be on their own. It is so amazing, I know she hates to see it end. Did you enjoy the warmer weather? Today is going to be even better.

How those girls do what they do is a mystery to me, but it sure looks like tons of FUN!!! Go, Lexi, go!

It would be a shame for this talent to just go by the way side...is there not some way they could continue this?

Anyway, Miss Lexi is very talented.

Laura said...

So much fun to watch! Are you still having snow? That must have kept people away from the game.

Kimberly said...

That's so exciting, Darlene! I don't know how in the world the girls do all those moves.... I can't even turn a cartwheel!
(I used to, but I'd break something now! LOL)

I enjoyed seeing the picture montage. Lexi always looks so happy when she is performing with her group.

That is so amazing and Lexi is spot on...I noticed she knew when to go and when to pause for a second. Amazing to watch!

Have a great week,

Dawn said...

That is fun to watch. I never could do well at jumping rope. (it's a depth perception thing for me). I can see how the girls would really enjoy it.

take care,
Dawn

Hello Darlene, I am home from Atlanta and trying hard to catch up with everyone. It seems like I am always playing catch up. I guess it's cause I am on the run so much.

I loved the video of Lexi and her friend. That is amazing. I played it three times. How do they do that??? Smiling here. Lexi is so cute.

I posted a photo of my sisters and I at the antique show. We had a great time but it was soooo cold. Ice and snow kept the attendance down at the show. Such is life.

Gotta write tomorrow's post so I better run.

Hugs xoxo, Jeanne

Christina said...

Wow, that's some serious coordination. Even at her age, I couldn't have imagined doing something like that. : )
