Angelina Ballerina...

So we've been anticipating Ballet Class at Woodbury Dance Center for about 2 months, and today was finally the day. Alex dressed in her leotard, tutu and slippers at approximately 7:14am (class started at 9:30).During class Alex participated thoughfully, and sometimes (ok- about half the time) stood there just observing the teachers and other kids. This seems to be her pattern, as she wants to understand something pretty well before jumping in. To their credit, her instructors let her just take it all in and didn't push her (yea!). She loved it, and was sad to leave.
The best part of the whole day was when she entered the studio for the first time and saw that it looked JUST like the studio in one of her favorite old ballet books (Lili at Ballet). She was excited to see the full wall of mirrors and a barre! What a fun summer experience!
