Because of that, I wanted nothing more then to have a little girl to pass my love of dance on to. I was thrilled when we knew at least one of the twins would be a girl. Mommy's very own little princess!
I have waited these 3 years, somewhat impatiently, to get Merasia involved in some sort of dance class. Last week, before her birthday, I started looking into what was offered for classes nearby, and getting her enrolled. I was able to get her into a ballet-type class for her age group called Early Creative Movement through a local Ballet company near us. Her first class was yesterday, and I was so excited to see how she interacted and what she thought of it. She was pretty excited when we got there, too!
Seriously?! How ADORABLE does she look in that leotard and tights??
We live in a small town, and we enrolled her in class at the last minute, so we had to scramble at some used clothing places in town to find her a leotard and tights at the last minute. I totally cannot wait to get her an adorable pink sparkly leotard and ballet slippers, and tights later this week! I am soo excited!
She was a little timid at first in getting involved with stretching and warming up....
She soon loosened up though and got right into it!
She had so much fun gallopping, skipping, running, twirling, and spinning across the room.
She even got a little solo time to "fly her magic carpet" (i.e. the scarf) around the room!
I am also so very thankful for the opportunity to pass on and share my love of dance with my daughter. She definitely has her mommy's dancing genes, and was born to dance. Of course, if she decides dance is no longer her thing at some point in her life, that's fine too and we will definitely not push her to continue, but support her in other areas of interest. :-) For now, though, I am soaking up her love of dance!
