This was a small homeschooling class of 5 girls. One of the moms had set this class up and was the first time my girls had taken ballet. They learned a lot - although Therese didn't enjoy it as much as Sophia, and she's the one who couldn't wait to *do* ballet!
When we got to the high school where the recital took place, Sophia would NOT let me leave her. At all. I had to go backstage with them and watch their dance from there. She came "this close" to not going out on stage. She was freaking out, crying - then their music began - and just like that she paved the way out on stage. I couldn't believe how she did a 180 in that nano-second! It was priceless! Afterwards, while giving her hugs, I saw her mascara down her face from her freak out! She must've looked awesome from the audience! LOL!
One of the little girls didn't go out. I tried coaxing her...but nothing worked. She wanted her mom and that was that.
I don't know if we'll do ballet again, but it sure was a neat experience.
