Olivia's first dance lesson...

After much consideration, I decided to enroll Olivia in dance lessons and boy was she happy about this...
Today a "preview" class was held at the studio so I took Olivia for a little taste....
The class is called "Creative Movement/Pre-ballet" and is designed for 3-4 year olds... In this class, little girls are taught creative movement, learn right and left and get started on basic ballet techniques...it's really cute...
I have to be honest and say that Olivia wasn't the best student and was actually quite disruptive... all she wanted to do was jump up and down and was horrible at following directions...however, the teacher (who is a professional dancer from Miami City Ballet) said that behavior was normal when little girls just start to dance... (I really hope she's right)...
Classes start on August 30th....I can't wait to see Olivia dance again!
