When you think of a ballerina your mind goes to dainty, perfection and beauty. The lessons the dressing the racing to get them there can be so much fun. The joy on there faces as there learn point and positions. The awe of the perfect costume, not a hair out of place stockings and perfect shoes. Yes this is what i pictured these lessons to be, Not a mad rush not the quick bobby pin the hair up sweaty mum rushing from school to dance class. The funniest thing tho after a few lessons and thinking your daughter was looking so upper class and feminine, For the teacher to call out to the class to lunge… When said daughter screams at the top of her lungs LUNCH!!! oh the shock on some faces…. But alas a almighty giggle comes from my mouth!! Yes she is your child after all!!. Its still fun its still a mission but after all its FUN!! to many people take things seriously let the kids enjoy themselves live is to be lived not over ruled!!
