Baby Ballet for Campbell

So Campbell is doing some fun activities this year. She is in Baby Ballet and Gymnastics. I have to give a H-U-G-E thank you to Nana & Papa for taking care of these fun activities this year, what a treat! She has dance on Tuesday afternoons and gymnastics on Wednesday afternoons. It is fun getting her all dressed to go and she absolutely loves attending. She of course is two so listening and following directions from the dance instructor and coach is sometimes hard for her to do. But I must say she is really trying and getting better each week. She has been in gymnastics now for three weeks and it is hard to get photos because we (parents) are only allowed in a viewing room which is way up high in the gym. Needless to say the zoom on my digital camera isn't capturing the best shots. However with dance class we are free to take all the photos we would like until they install the blinds. The blinds as they were explained last week in parent and child class is so that parents can't be seen from little ones that might cry. So till then I will have to capture my shots through the looking glass. She had her official first dance class today and here she is, our tiny ballerina.

Getting ready to go into the studio. Carrying her very first ballet shoes in a very cute bag. A warm thank you to Aunt Kristine and Uncle Matt for those items.
Here she is waiting for dance class to be called upstairs. She is trying to wait patiently when all she wants to do is run and touch all the cute leotards on display. Doesn't she look like she is about to be "sassy" with her mommy?
And finally we are in class getting ready to "bust a move."
I can't wait to see how much she learns this year from these classes where they actually learn skills and in dance actually has a recital. I'll be sure to keep you "posted".

Oh, how cute! Nothin' cuter than your own little girl in ballet class!

Your teacher was our teacher, too (a couple of years ago). She's great with little ones!
