Tiny Dancer

A few posts ago, I mentioned looking into dance classes for Sophie. After a series of websearches, emails, and phone calls, we discovered that Parks and Rec offers dance classes for all ages, including 3-5 year olds. The price was quite reasonable for the 22-week session of ballet and tap and we signed her up immediately. Today, she had her first class.
We parents were relegated to jockeying for position in the 5" window, but I was fortunate that Sophie chose a position where I could get a picture.
Miss Megan, the teacher, let us in for the last 5 minutes where they performed what they had learned: first position, plie, and they held their hands in front and turned in circles.
Sophie had such a blast, and next week they'll start working on their December 5 holiday recital. Now if we could just get her to take off the ballet shoes.
