Tiny Dancer

How does this

turn into this?

I have no idea, but it sure is fun to watch. Miss B's ballet school takes ballet very seriously, and they always do a real ballet as their recital. This year it was A Midsummer Night's Dream, which I think they also did her first year. While Miss B still hasn't quite reached the point of participating in the actual plot, she and her fellow Level 3 students look a lot more like dancers than they used to, both onstage and off. The chiffon costumes are a lot less itchy than those sequined numbers, and she now does her own hair.

Although we miss the tiny dancer, we're very proud of the medium-sized one who has taken her place.

And let's not forget a rousing round of applause for her intrepid ballet teacher. Thank you, Ms. Campbell!

  • Aw geez, I remember doing that! Of course, she's probably a LOT more graceful. ;-)

    Swirly chiffon is lots of fun when you're a certain age, isn't it?

  • Amazing, isn't it? That transformation from child into something resembling the young woman she will become?

    She's lovely!

  • I would have killed for such a cute costume back when I was dancing (at about that same age, I think). I hope the ballet was great - you were full of pride, I am sure.
