A New Dance School

It was time to make the switch.  Lucia started taking ballet lessons when she was two-and-a-half and her love for dance hasn’t waned in the least.  After having an experience at a proper ballet school (at her fabulous fourth birthday party, which I will write about someday) – I’ve been searching for a dance school in our area that focuses a bit more on technique.   

She had her first ballet/tap/gymnastics combo class today.  The teacher was lovely and I hoped that Lucia would prefer the “new school” (which she did!) within three minutes of the class starting. The tap portion (which she was really excited about) was hilarious. 

Here she is getting individualized instruction to tap quietly with a controlled leg:

This is how well she followed her teachers instruction:

Watch out Rockettes.  There’s a new Ginger Rogers in town.
