Lily’s first ballet recital

Lily had her very first ballet recital this past weekend and the show nearly killed us all with the levels of cuteness. The recital included about 6 dances from 6 classes all with students ranging mostly from ages 3 to 5 (Lily turned 6 during the school year) and oh-my-goodness was it 30 minutes well spent.

Lily’s class danced to “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music. She has been practicing her recital dance since they started the routine this winter–asking for me to play the song so she could go over the steps.

Arabesque, pirouette, jeté, demi-plié, relevé…This kid loves practicing ballet at home. I don’t know if she’ll stick with it moving forward, but I’ve absolutely loved watching her this year.

And here she is with Miss Maggie, her teacher, and it sort of breaks my heart a little because she just absolutely LOVES Miss Maggie and she only teaches the little ones.

I hope another dance teacher like Miss Maggie comes into her life!
