My Little Ballerina

So, this year the competition team is required to take ballet for technique and strengthening. After all, ballet is the foundation for every dance, so I've heard anyway... Kaylyn LOVES it. I can't believe it. When she started taking dance at 3 years old, ballet and tap were the only dances offered to her age group. She HATED ballet with a passion. Every week she would beg to just go to her tap class and skip ballet. Seriously, it was like pulling teeth to get the child to class. So, when we found out she would be required to take ballet for competition dance this year, I was a little nervous to say the least. I had flashbacks of dragging my child to ballet classes every week for 2 years and the celebration dance we did when she was invited to the competition team, which meant no more ballet. Needless to say, I was shocked when she was so excited about her ballet class this year, and I think she likes it more than her tap and jazz classes! Talk about a turn of events!
Here she is showing off some of the moves she's learned.

I have NO idea what she's doing here!
