Ballet on the Road

Divagirl loves to dance.

She misses her ballet teacher and classmates from CA. She’s also grown about 6″ since the summer, but I’ll get back to that.

Initially I enrolled her in ballet to gain body awareness because she stumbled often. After roughly three weeks she no longer stumbled. As an added benefit she discovered her love of dance.

Its not the easiest to find cooperative ballet studios in new towns. Sometimes they don’t allow drop-ins; others make you pay yearly enrollment fees; or they won’t accept new students mid-term; then try to coordinate schedules and locations within biking distance. Needless to say, she hasn’t taken a class since June.
