Charlotte will be taking dance class for the first time in the fall at Mommy's studio. At ADC, we have a special class for first-time dancers called 'Twinkle Toes.' Last week, Charlotte came to class at the studio quite by accident. Mommy needed to check in with the big girls (dance team dancers) and Charlotte wanted to say hello. They were in the middle of their dance team intensive and taking a ballet class. While Mommy was talking with the instructor, Charlotte found a spot at the barre, in between the big girls. They showed her tendu and first position. When it was time to leave, she really didn't want to go! We are ready and excited for our own special class with Ms. Adele. Charlotte also joined Mommy and the studio instructors and office manager for our annual photo shoot with Brenda Ladd. Ms. Mary, our fabulous nanny, was there to play with her, but she was more interested in looking at the beautiful ballerinas.
Today we purchased some dancewear at Capezio. It was a lot of fun! We got to pick out leos, tutus, slippers and a special dance bag. Mommy explained the importance of having a ballet bag b/c we never wear our pretty slippers outside of the dance studio. It was fun to go to Capezio b/c ADC's very own Ms. Jeannie works there in addition to teaching Jazz at Austin Dance Company. Charlotte loves Ms. Jeannie - Mommy does, too. Ms. Jeannie took over for some of Mommy's classes when Fin was born. She helped us get all of our fun dancewear.
