Here she is before her first class:
I didn't really get many pictures during the first class because it requires parent participation, but I can assure you that Emerson loved it.
This week, I was determined to get some pictures of my tiny dancer. She's the youngest in her class and also the newest so she spends a lot of the time just watching the other kids.
But she is starting to break out of her shell a little bit more and try some of the moves. They have a recital coming up this summer so we will wait and see if she is ready to participate. Can you imagine how stinkin' cute that will be?
They spend most of the class doing ballet, but towards the end they put on their tap shoes. It's definitely Emerson's favorite part. This was during a little break while the teacher got the music ready:
She's at that stage where she listens when she wants to so I was a big nervous about how she would do but she is so sweet in class and listens to her teacher so well.
When we got home I asked her to show me some of the things she learned at dance:
I don't know if dance is something she will continue to be interested in as she is older and I made a promise to myself that I would never make her do it. In the meantime I am loving her sweet little tutu, her tiny ballet shoes, and those precious little ballerina buns.
