Our teeny ballerina has a ballet-ball showing off her newly acquired dance skill at the community center dance show. Her small class performed “bananaphone” (Raffi lovers know the song!) and looked so cute in their tutus and hair bows they could’ve been eaten.
Curtseying for mama…

All in all, taking ballet at the community center was the perfect choice for our little ballerina. It was low stress, low key, and she got to wear her dress up tutus every week for practice. The “serious” dance schools get as specific for their dancers as to even the color of underwear and how the hair must be for practice. I think Anna loved that her dance teacher always wondered what color tutu she was going to show up in for rehearsals. She did a fabulous job, and of course, 4 and 5 year olds dancing together is so sweet that you can barely handle it. There were a TON of ahhs when the curtain opened on these cuties – followed by thunderous applause at the conclusion of their 3 minute song.
