The Ballerino and his Ladies

Today was the first day of dance class for the year, and Charley was happy to join Tessa and Rachel in the dancing. Dressed in his manly black shoes and yoga pants, he jumped right in and did a great job.

The preschool class is for 2-5 year olds so this year will be that one perfect window of time for them to dance together. Not to mention Charley was chomping at the bit to join in last year. At first Jeremy had some reservations about a boy dancing, but in time he got over it. They do some ballet and then some tap, and the teachers are careful to make sure Charley's props are boy appropriate. It's wonderful!

I thought there was a tiny chance he might run around crazy or freak out, but not at all. He listened well, waited his turn and followed the rest of the class (actually his big sister is the one having trouble paying attention sometimes)

I think it's going to be a good year at Tippy Toes.

The girls wore butterfly wings to 'fly' around with, but Miss Kim had some nice manly bumblebee wings for Charley.

Run, jump, pose!

Charley getting some personal instruction on how to do turns on the bar.
