It was Parent Observation Day today at my daughter's ballet class. She's been in class a month now so I was excited to see how far she'd come (Parents are not allowed to sit in class except on Observation Days).
I was truly blown away. Her first day of class she stood there and just soaked it all up. She stood perfectly still and transfixed by all that was happening. Today she was a dancin' fool. She did everything and participated in all the dancing and activities. She and all of the other little girls were just absolutely adorable.
I would have never done this at her age (I'm not even sure I would do it now) so I have a lot of admiration for her because she has become so outgoing and social and this class has really seemed to cultivate and nurture that in her.
To see the coordination required and command these little ones have of their bodies and movements (and sometimes not have such great command over their bodies and movements) was cute and impressive. My daughter was thrilled to have me (and my mom and grandma) there to watch all that she has learned over the past month.
