Ballet

For Natalie's birthday this year I really wanted to get her a gift of substance from us. So we decided that it was finally time to put her in ballet. I found a great studio where she can really learn and progress if she chooses to do so. They are pretty inexpensive compared to what we were thinking we were going to have to pay also! So that is a huge plus! She got all her clothing, tights, leotard, and both pairs of shoes, for free with signing up. Woo hoo! I love a great deal!

She went and loved it. Of course all the other girls have been in the class for a few months, but she listens and wanted to be there, so she was picking it up fast. We will work on basic foot positions at home, so she knows what the teacher is talking about. I was so proud of her though. When all the other girls were goofing off and messing around, she held fast, and kept trying to do the moves. Granted she doesn't have any little friends in there too goof off with, yet, but I hope that she will stay obedient, and really have fun with it!
She loves her clothes, but wants to find a leotard with short sleeves. I hope she loves ballet!

Adorable! I'm glad you found a good school AND a good deal. I hope someday I can find a deal like that.

How fun! Great job on the black and white photo, you need to blow that up big and frame it for your new place!

How fun for Natalie. Having danced from 3-18 yrs, I loved it and appreciate all my parents did to help me get better. I'm sure Natalie will feel the same!

She looks so grown up in that ballet outfit! Wow. I do hope she loves ballet, I tried to take it when I was in my 20's and my body just wouldn't move very well by then!

Cutie pie. Can I come do ballet with her? I always wanted to do ballet, but we couldn't afford it. Tell her I won't embarrass her, I promise.
