Lucy has never been a ballet kind of girl. She’s super active, and gymnastics has been more her cup of tea for an extracurricular activity.
But, in May, we went to her cousin’s ballet recital, and Lucy was enamored. I think she really liked the modern dance routines more, but she has wanted to go on stage and perform ever since. So, last month she did a week-long ballet camp at the studio where her BFF from Sabbath School takes class. And, she LOVED it!
They went for an hour each day, and on Friday, they did a little “recital” in the studio for all the parents and grandparents.
They even tried to do the splits! I have to say, Lucy did WAY better than I could ever do!
Lucy seriously had the time of her life, and she even said that she enjoyed dance class more than gymnastics! So, we signed her up for the fall class, in which she’ll do ballet and tap. I’m excited, and Lucy cannot WAIT until her recital!
And, yes, I know her ballet slippers aren’t really ballet shoes. I found them at Target and thought they’d be similar to ballet shoes. Boy, was I wrong. She looked like she was wearing an old lady’s house slippers! Luckily, she’s 3 and adorable and can get away with anything.
