My Little Ballerina

This week began our first ballet class.  I have been so excited for this!  Today, Madelyn was a little apprehensive.  She said she wanted to wait until she was a little bigger before learning how to dance.  After a small heart attack on my part - we are WAY too invested in this for her to back out now - I convinced her she would have a great time.  Curtain Call is the official dance studio of the Indianapolis Colts Cheerleaders.  They have a great reputation.  But the main thing that I've been attracted to is the fact that they pride themselves in focusing more on the art of dance instead of the competition.  They also make sure that the little girls are dressed age appropriately.  I LOVE that!  So off we went in our pink leotard, pink tights, pink ballet shoes and even a ballerina bun. 

She looked absolutely adorable.  The last 5 minutes of class I was able to join her and see a little dance that they learned to music.  Today was mainly about listening skills.  She did a good job and had so much fun.  She is more than ready to go back next week!  Thank goodness!!  PS - I wish I would have taken a little video of her dancing today, but alas, I enjoyed watching her so much I forgot I even had a camera!  There's always next time.
