A Bunny Dance

One of my favorite TV shows is 'So You Think You Can Dance' - I watch it entranced with a huge grin on my face. I, on the other hand, am no a dancer - I've been known to clear whole dance floors by lurching into scary Footloose types of body shaking after a few too many glasses of wine ... but lets not recount those moments.

Did you know that the bunnies in the Rachael Rabbit workshop like to dance? (but unfortunately they are not as delicate as dear Grace.) So after attending Vanessa's Tea Party - in their matching bunny print dresses - they have decided to burn off the yummy and beautiful cakes (yes they sampled all four!) with some dancing in the garden.

Though it is little known, bunnies are very good at maypole dancing ... cue the music ...
... it gets crowded weaving in and out ...
... someone looks like she is having fun flying around the maypole ...
... an aerial action shot ...
... coming to the end of the ribbons - doesn't the maypole look pretty!
Well done ladies - how about a line up for a big round of applause?
Well that wasn't quite the angle I was thinking of - but your tails are so wonderful and fluffy. (Why do bunny tails make me quite so happy?)

Your bunnies are such beautiful dancers - I always love the maypole dancing! Their little pinafores are so cute. No doubt they will sleep well tonight after all their exercise!

You know, I have always had a thing for maypoles. It's like giant knitting or huge weaving, the way the pattern emerges as you dance/weave. I think there are cool. And the bunnies are pretty cute too!

I love the bunnies!!!

We are SYTYCD freaks at my house. Having two small dancers living here we get more than our fair share of dance terminology and leg warmers. It makes watching more fun because we sometimes know what they are talking about.

Such gorgeous talent. They must have rehearsed for hours to look so professional.

Marvellous! :) Cutest thing I've seen all day.

Dragonfly said...

That has made my morning! They are so cute and look like they're having a ball!

LOUISE said...

Look at those bunny tufts, they have really made me smile! When I was at primary we used to dance around the maypole for May day. Have you ever, it is quite tricky to get the moves right, one false move and the whole effect is ruined. Looks like your bunny girls have it down to a fine art though! I love their pretty summer dresses. x

kristy said...
