My Little Ballerina

My little JBean started ballet. She has been asking for a year. I finally found a place that seems like a good fit. I wasn't sure if she could handle it, but it is going really well. This was her second week. She is working so hard. She has the best dance teacher, Miss Jennifer, and she is very understanding and so good with the girls. She is wonderful to JBean.

With her autism, she has a little bit of a struggle with getting into some of the positions, stretching her toes and she can't skip (she gallops instead) but she really loves it, and is very happy to be there. She gets to be flower princess in the Nutcracker and is just over the moon!

Mama is hair-challenged, I got it up, but it doesn't look too great

Isn't she adorable?

She is so precious and looks like she will have fun, I wish I would have done this for Micheyla when she was younger, almost impossible to get her started here at age 12.

Adorable! Isn't it wonderful to find something that brings such big smiles? So glad you found a studio and teacher that "fit."

Awww!! How pretty she looks and "free" I love watching little girls dance - they just live and love it.

She's a bit older than my daughter but I bet she would like the prima princessa DVD with swan lake!!!

Oh and I just bought some really cute poofy tutus on Etsy!!!! http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5618172

Oh she is YUMS in that outfit. I'm so happy that you found a place that works for both of you.

Oh how precious! She looks like she already loves it. A good teacher/student fit is HUGE! Congrats on hitting that jackpot. :-)

Thank you everyone! This was her third week and she is really loving it, and it is working out well. I signed her up for The Nutcracker holiday performances, so much fun!
