Ballet Class

Last Monday was "observation night". Usually when Tatum goes to ballet class the parents have to sit out in the waiting area. There's not even a window to peek in at the girls. It's all top secret what they do back there. Since my sister had to work, I went as a fill in. Here are some pics for you, Carla.
Tatum really loves the class. I'm admittedly a little biased but I think she does really well. She listens and follows direction. Which is really saying a lot. Trust me. And she has really great form.... especially considering she's only 5. Seriously though. Look at the other little girls in the class. And look at that perfect little pointy toe. Oh... she's 2nd from the teacher.
The girl has some flexibility, no? Excuse the blurry pic. It was taken from across the room.
Again... perfect form. This kid is a natural. Well, I'm just saying.
She knows most of the moves by name. The teacher would call it out and she knew exactly what to do.
They're practicing for a recital. And Tatum knows almost the entire routine by heart already.

Who knew this tomboy would end up being such a girly girl? I mean being raised with 3 rowdy brothers and this is the only kid who suffered a broken bone so far. (Knock on wood.) But she loves to put on her toe shoes and dance.
I just love this last pic with her perfect little long legged ballerina body, her beautiful reddish-blond hair..... and her panties showing from under her leotard. It just cracks me up. :)

Tatum is so cute....and yes, she does look like she is a natural!!

I taught ballet to little ones this age and it was so much fun....there were always a couple that were really good....and then a couple that ran all over not having a clue as to what was going on.

Can't wait to see those recital pictures....my guess is that Tatum will be front and center!!

She has a great "ballerina" figure! Not everyone can get away with wearing those pink tights, you know!!!

It's important to wear shoes while dancing as that will allow you to move, yet provide your feet with comfort. A leather loafer will provide your feet with both air and room to breath and will allow you to dance without having to focus on your throbbing feet. You can get more information about dance shoes which I browsed on internet can fetch you help.

Cute stuff...nothing wrong with being a girly girl who can kick butt if the need arises. A girl with so many brothers will be able to take care of herself (oh, yeah, I've got five of 'em).
