Lia continued with ballet this fall at the YMCA. She's still in the 3-6 year old class and continues to enjoy it. I love that the instructors are all high school teens who just really seem to enjoy the little girls and love to teach. We attended class on Wednesdays and Fridays so Lia got lots of dancing in this year. Last year, her end of class recital was an informal affair for the parents in her ballet studio. This year, however, she got to perform her dance on stage in a real youth theatre production of The Little Mermaid. It was a really fun experience and we enjoyed getting to see the show as well! Here she is the night of her performance. Does she look just a little bit excited? She's got a little bit of make-up on too... adding to the big smiles.
This is a picture from the dress rehearsal on Thursday.
