This past week was parent's week so we got to go in with our cameras and watch what the girls had been doing all year. Ms. Bernie has a way of teaching the girls ballet through ways where the girls feel like they are pretending and in make believe land. I just love it!
The class is getting ready to start learning their moves for the recital in May. The place where Lorelei goes to ballet is a Performing Arts school so they always do a musical at the end of the year. This year it will be Peter Pan and Lorelei's class is the Pixie Dust! Once again, perfect for Lorelei, because she loves that movie and can understand what who she is going to be in the recital. I am looking forward to seeing her and her cute little classmates dance around the stage. Of course Little Miss Priss will front and center for the show because of her size- here's hoping that she pays attention!
Like most classes that Lorelei has ever been in, Lorelei loves to direct the class. She is always one step ahead of the teacher, telling her, rather "reminding" her what comes next. It was funny this weekend at my Granny's funeral I ran into Lorelei's old Nursery school teacher. She reminded me of how even then she could always count on Lorelei to help her out when she forgot what song or story came next!
As you can see through the pictures, Lorelei adores Ms. Bernie and her ballet class! So glad that this is the one she ended up in this year!
"Oh Ms. Bernie, you crack me up!"
Doing some frog jumping across the room.
Ahhh, "smiling feet" as Ms. Bernie calls them- pretty little ballerina pose!
Such a cute group of girlies, I love talking with the moms each week as well!
Twinkling like a star, she's really getting into this!
Listening close to make sure Ms. Bernie knows what to do next!
Smiling feet again!
Getting ready to dance across the floor!
