All Aboard - Kids

“This was the first and and only year my sister and I were in dance classes. Please note: In the real world, I’ve never been on Amtrak with a conductor that wore this outfit. Sadly.”

    Sometimes I doubt your commitment to sparklemotion.

    Julie – my friend posted this to my facebook a few months ago because the little redhead is the absolute spitting image of me when I was small, and I have spent ages trying to convince people it actually isn’t me! We’ve had to get a sworn statement from my mother and put a link to this page to prove it. Are you her, or do you know the redhaired girl? I would LOVE to contact her to see if we look alike now – weirdly I would have been about the same age in 1990!

    Your sister’s name isn’t Sally is it?

    Ok Im not sure the year on this or where these girls lived…but I believe we may have been in the same dance class. We had those exact outfits and had a routine to ” All Aboard” it was circa 1990?

    My first thought was of that “Extra, Extra, Read All About It” number in Gypsy, sung by Dainty June & Her Newsboys…

    I had some fun deciding what songs they could have been performing in those dance routines: “Rapper’s Delight” by The Sugarhill Gang, and the more obvious choice, “C’mon N’ Ride It (The Train)” by Quad City DJs.

    …Or that rap in The Simpsons episode with The Caution Crew (lame performers who came to Springfield Elementary School and rapped about safety: “I say a-crosswalk, a cross and a walk, and ya don’t stop crossing ’til you’re on the next block…”).

    Pah ha ha ha hah ha ha! LOL. Just funny. I so, soooooo wanted to be Shirley Temple. And envied a pageant-going friend when I was that age. Man, am I thankful for my either neglectful or disinterested mother. But then, I don’t have a photo this good! 😀

    Awkward outfits, but adorable girls. I’m sure they were very proud of their cool costumes back in the day.
