1st Ballet Class

We decided to enroll Asia in a ballet class for 3 to 5 year olds. She is just 2 1/2 weeks away from turning 3. Today was her very first day of class. I wasn't sure how she would do...she's never been involved in something like that. Or been to school...we've only ever put her in Sunday School a couple of times(because we're teaching her to sit in church...which by the way...she can do for 2+ hours).
She was very excited with the prospect of going...but when she got into the class...she was pretty overwhelmed. It took her about 40 minutes to warm up to the idea...then, she really got into it...and seemed to enjoy herself.
Before going to class...I showed her some videos on youtube to give her an idea of what she would be doing. Let me just say that I think that classes in the US for this age group greatly differ from here. All the videos we saw were of fun stuff...little girls prancing around, etc. Here...they were already teaching the positions. :) Well, maybe parents only posted the cute little prancing!
All ready for class...and very excited!

Little Miss is by far the youngest and smallest. :) You could tell the vast majority of the girls had been in ballet before... Hopefully, she'll catch on quickly...and learn to follow the teacher's movements! The teacher was very nice...and told me not to worry...that she would catch on very quickly. She was already telling Asia about the recital in December!
