Our little ballerina had her first dance class today. She had a special dinner at McDonald's beforehand and then, dressed in her pink tights and black leotard, we arrived at the dance studio. Her face was already red simply from the heat/humidity (over 100 heat index). We slipped on her tiny pink ballet slippers and sent her off to class. We heard music and thumping and even the clip-clopping of tap shoes at one point. After class, she emerged with a very proud smile on her face. When we got home, she showed us her moves - holding her foot behind her and rotating her foot in a circle. She also informed us that she got to do a somersault and jumps. She learned how to curtsy. She is now anticipating her next class with much excitement and we couldn't be happier for her.
