Christian Irizarry-Darling, 6, of Groton relaxes while his mother, Amanda Darling (not pictured), instructs a tap class Tuesday in the upper level of the Richard R. Martin Social Services Center in New London. Amanda has been teaching tap and ballet classes for the New London Parks and Recreation Department for the past 10 years. Her son also dances and has been coming with his mom since he was born.
Christian Irizarry-Darling, 6, of Groton doesn't exactly sit around during a dance class taught by his mother, but it's close.
