After two sessions of parent-and-me toddler dance classes, Essley is currently taking her first real ballet class. (Or, more accurately, whatever form of ballet 2.5-3 year olds actually do.) She is way into it. I just love peeking through the tiny window on the door of her weekly lessons and spying on the little ones enthusiastically attempting awkward plies and first positions. I started ballet when I was 5 and continued taking dance in various forms all the way through college. And although I was never even close to talented enough to pursue it for anything more than fun, I adored it, and seeing Essley love it so much has been pretty wonderful. I've actually been feeling inspired by all things ballet lately as a result, hence the images you see above that I've come across recently and decided to share. I can't wait to take Ess to see The Nutcracker at Christmas time.
Did any of you take (or still take) dance? Are any of your little ones dancers? Who else could stare at images of ballet dancers for hours?
