UPDATED JAN. 29, 2012 - Here are all the participants so far:
And with that, here's my dance first.... 

My first dance performance!

Here I am as a "Cuddly Duck" at age 3 after my first dance recital.  (Here is a link to the song, although I have no idea who the kids are).

What I remember most about that performance:  when we were on stage, the girl next to me just stood there and cried through the whole dance.  Didn't move.  Just kept sobbing.  Apparently I kept dancing but kept giving the girl a dirty look as if to say - "what the heck - this is fun, what's your problem?".

Ok, tag, you're it!
