Toddler Ballet and Tap

For the past few months Sarah has been attending Ballet with her friend, Charlize or as Sarah calls her Charlie.

IMG_1452For those who know Sarah, you know that anytime she hears a beat she is off dancing! She enjoys dancing so much, I knew I had to sign her up for dance classes.

I bought her a bag and ballet shoes at Payless ShoeSource. Both items are cute and simple enough for this stage of ballet.


Next was finding leotards. A few days after I purchased the bag and shoes, I found a pink and black leotard on the swap and sell websites for moms. Score!

With her new gear in tow, we headed for class. Her first class was “tutu” cute! They pranced around the room, jumped through hula hoops and played with scarves.

IMG_1428IMG_3193After the first class, Sarah walked around the carpet at home (as she did in class), practicing her heel/toe moves.

With a community center class of this type, there isn’t usually another teacher available to step in and provide continuity. Unfortunately, we had to make the decision to not continue after the semester ends. Instead we plan to check out a new activity in the Spring.
