My Ballerina Baby

So this term I have decided to try putting Lily into her first dance class! This little girl looooooves to move and groove, so I thought it would be a fun and enriching thing for her, with good discipline in learning some simple steps without it being high pressure or too full on, and mostly just FUN of course! The class is for 2-4 year olds, with a mix of creative dancing (learning elements of ballet and so on), drama, instruments, pilates (!!?) and just generally running around and having fun like the busy little bees that they are!

She has been begging for ages to do 'ballet class' which she got the idea of from somewhere (you, oh gentle reader, have probably picked up on the obsessive tutu and ballet shoe uniform she wears!!) so I could not wait to break the news to her that she was actually getting to go...

Her beautiful face just about burst with the shock and joy of it all. She was thrilled, to say the least!

She immediately set about recreating her vision of the ballet class with an entire assembly of ballerinas (including a teacher, names for every student, and so on).

She is pretty excited. *Understatement of the Year*

The count down is on - we start next week!!

This is her 'I'm very pleased with myself' face

Ballerina with hair!

These ones got tiaras too (sorry Lily, I squished one of their skirts in the drawer - whoops!) 

The Ballet class fully assembled... she calls it her Ballet Decorations


  1. They are the cutest Ballerina decorations I have ever seen! Must be so wonderful to see her get so much delight out of this :)

  2. Sweet, sweet girl. Those ballerinas are just adorable. What a creative little miss! She has every right to be pleased with herself. Well done Lily!

  3. oh Lily they are fantastic, you are so creative. You are going to love ballet class little one and I can't wait to see the photos.

  4. Love the pleased with herself look :)) and the craft .. pretty pretty
