Dancin' Queen

Today was Ella's first day of ballet. She has been looking forward to this for a few weeks now and the excitement really kicked in after we got her shoes, leotard and tights yesterday. Here is how she relaxes in the morning...such a classy lady before ballet class :)

 We got her ready and she was so excited about her outfit. She showed me her moves a little at home.

 That is a plie...I swear.
 This is classic Ella!

 Before class I got to take some pictures in her room. Her teacher told her how to pose...

 She's trying!
 The grace and beauty is astounding ;)
 That is some uncomfortable looking ballet.
 Got it!

 She either loves mirrors or loves herself...


 Love this girl!
Parents stay in the lobby during class where you can watch their class on closed circuit television. This is nice because the kids don't get weird about the parents being there and staring but we still get to watch...and boy was it CUTE. The downside pictures of class! No one else signed up for her class (yet...hoping for more soon) but one of the women that work there had her little daughter there and she danced with Ella today. It was adorable. Ella listened very carefully and did everything really well. The teacher was so wonderful with the kids and it was so fun to watch. They say Ella will be a natural on stage...somehow I don't doubt that for a minute! I can't wait for next week and either can Ella!
