Little Ballerina

Today was Samantha's very 1st dance class. For Christmas Grandma & Papa gave Sammie dance lessons. We bought new leotards, tights, skirt, ballet slippers and tap shoes. I wasn't sure if Sam would actually listen and follow directions...but turns out...I had nothing to worry about! She did awesome! Ms Susie is her teacher and led her in all the ballet positions and steps. They started with a stretch and warm up. Then they did bar work and different combinations across the floor. I've gotta learn the names of these steps!There was plenty of twirls and curtsies after every move...little girls are so fun to watch! They love to be on their toes!
At the end of the ballet session, they did a group activity.

Then, it was time to put on their tap shoes! Sammie has been wearing these for the past 24 hours scratched up wood floors are proof of that. They made raindrop sounds that Sam said sounded like fireworks.

It was a great day and quite an emotional parenting moment to watch her be such a big girl!
