Ballet Slipper Pink/Pink Saturday
Mary loved her first pair of ballet slippers!
Shopping for new ballet slippers this week.
I am becoming seriously addicted to these memes! In addition to Blue Mondays, I have discovered Pink Saturdays. For my FIRST Pink Saturday, I thought that I would share with you pictures of my daughter's tiny pink ballet slippers! Is there anything sweeter in the world of dance?!!! (For more lovely PINKNESS, please visit our lovely hostess, Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.
Mary Catherine began exploring dance exactly one year ago. While not exactly a natural...she does have the best disposition for it! She's self-confident regardless of ability (and really, we're talking 3-4 years old here!) and willing to take and follow direction. She's independent and spunky and hasn't encountered enough of the world's criticisms to shake her self-esteem.
The following are pictures of Mary experiencing her very first dance recital. (By the way, Mary takes dance through the local community center. In this day and age of "competitivie" dance/ball/academic leagues, I wanted a low/no-stress environment that wasn't cost-prohibitive. We love going to our local community center, in our tiny town that just got its first stoplight, on Tuesdy afternoons to tap, tumble, and pirouette with Ms. Tauna!)
Pre-recital; I think she looks a bit Shirley Temple-esque!
Warming up before the show in costume with her good friend and dance partner, Sydney.
Getting some last minute directions. My daughter is the one doing the "W" sitting. Always the little lady...not!
