Hip Hop Moms: Cool or Weird?

When my husband and kids picked me up from dance class last week, the kids got to watch for a minute. Some of you know I have been taking a tap class and a hip-hop class, filled with 30-something moms! It has been really fun, but I think it’s more of a challenge to my memory than my body! I am having such a hard time remembering the steps!

Anyway, when I was done, my 6 year old said, “You look really awesome, mommy!”

My 8 year old said, “Well, it’s kinda weird seeing moms dance like that.”

Now I assure you the moves are all very appropriate, but the difference in the two reactions was so interesting! What would your kids say about you dancing hip-hop?

    That’s so cute!
    My kids see me dancing hip hop all the time. I love all types of music (The Hubs too) and we dance around the house frequently. From ballet to hip-hop to liturgical, we do it all!
    Recently, I’ve started hoop dancing at home. My kids (4 and 15 months) love it!!!

    I have a feeling it is the beginning of many things that you’ll do that she will find embarrassing. But it is because of her age – she’s getting older and she doesn’t want her mom to be “cooler” or “as cool as her”.

    I think it is great! You’re dancing in a hip-hop class and not in a um, um “gentleman’s club” 😉


  3. They would laugh at me, and then post videos on the internet. It rocks that you are taking a hip hop class or even a dance class. This is something that I have wanted to do for months now, but I never have time.

    Hugs and Mocha,


  4. My 6 year old would love it and ask me to teach her the moves. My 9 year old would laugh at me. I love to dance, I would go with the 6 year old!


  5. That sounds fun! Can you send me the details about the class? I have been looking for one! Is it too late to sign up for it!

    If I could hip hop dance, I wouldn’t care if my kids thought it was cool or not. All I can do is wiggle my butt lol.

    Kids of a certain age will always be embarassed by their parents no matter how cool you really are. So shake that booty, sister! 🙂
