These photos are courtesy of my friend, Laura Yates. (here is her website) Her daughter Maddy is in Bella's class (and is awesome at it, BTW), and Laura is a professional photographer. Yes, please!
Bella has actually been listening in class a lot better. We have 'the talk' about how ballet class is a place to listen and learn, not to play...every time. But it seems to be working.
I've also been taking ballet classes myself. It looks like our adult class will also be doing the recital in May, so I look forward to sharing my own dancing craziness at some point too :) (and, yes, I tried having the talk with myself, but it didn't work.)
