Disco Inferno


I can still remember my first disco, at the local footy club when I was about 13 or 14. My friends had been before because one of their dad's was involved with the club. I can remember Little Red Corvette and 99 Red Balloons playing and being paralysed with embarassment. I couldn't make myself dance, I felt everyone was looking at me, which of course they were because I was the only one not dancing!

I eventually overcame my inhibitions, but my girls suffer none of the same. Ella's school had a disco on Friday and Leila and I went. They danced to Abba, HSM, Hannah Montana and Lady Gaga. This shot is about the only time Leila wasn't dancing - she was right in amongst it the whole time. So fun, so lovely to see them and an indication of things to come.

Oh God this is beautiful, seeing your two girls together just like mine often brings such a big smile.

I hope you danced along just as much now you're a bigger girl with less inhibitions perhaps?!!!!

Hey...how is your class going?

I am not a dancer at all. Two left feet, but I grew up listening to disco because my mom loved it. I remember dancing with her to Dancing Queen and many Bee Gee songs. Great memories of disco...
