Love Thursday: Ballet



My daughter has been obsessed with ballet recently. It's her newest love. She never could sit still; now, instead of wiggling and squirming, she's always dancing and twirling. Here she is doing a plie (plee-YAY). Well, it looks more like a squat, but she loves doing it anyway (sorry honey, you're just a beginner, I promise it'll look more like a plie soon).


What big sister loves, so do the boys. Here they are trying out their own plies. They decided to wear their superhero costumes because they know from Ballerino Nate, their new favorite book, that boy dancers don't have to wear tutus.


They've been begging me to let them take ballet lessons too. I signed them up for pre-ballet despite some funny looks from my husband.

Such cute photos! You know, I've read that ballet is very good for young boys for later forays into other sports--the balance and grace is useful no matter what they play :)

I have a little beginning dancer here, too. There is just one other boy in the dance group, I wish there were more. I think it's good for their coordination.
Happy Love Thursday :)

Oh my word, I LOVE those pictures! How the little brothers want to emulate their big sister but they put a definite boyish spin on it -- TOO cute!!!

Oh, your children are adorable. I think it is wonderful that they will all be dancing together - think of the future photos. :)

My mom had us take ballet, which I loved. And there are more and more little boys in there since I was a little girl. I just wish my husband didn't squirm so much when I causually mention that maybe our son might do the same. :)
Haha.
Happy LT!

My son took dance for a couple of years when he was 2-4 or 5. It was so cute. I really do think it helped him. He is very athletic anyway, but he was one of the first kids in his class to learn to skip and also to know left and right.

Sadly, soccer and other sports took the place of dance as he got older, but he still loves to bust a move, and is quite good.
