Julia wants to show your little girls a ballet exercise…

Julia LOVES ballet!!!

Since she was three, she’s been going to a wonderful ballet class every Tuesday morning. She’d go every day if she could.

The best part of her ballet class is her teacher who is very strict but in the most inspiring of ways. She expects each girl to behave as a ballerina should. And do you know what? They do!

I just wish I had this teacher’s powers at home.

She teaches the girls adorable little songs and routines even for the simplest task such as stretching their legs and ankles.

(There happen to not be any boys in Julia’s class, which has added to her belief that only girls do ballet. I’ve tried to assure her that boys can too.)

Julia wanted to show your little girls how she practices her “good ballerina toes”.

(In this video Julia is 4 years old… almost 5.)

So tell us, do your little girls or boys love ballet? Do they take classes? Do they dance around the living room?

My little girl is just finishing up her 1st year of Ballet. She has enjoyed it but is looking forward to trying her hand at “Hip Hop” or something a little faster moving.

Oh yes…my girls are obsessed!! They’re a bit too young for classes, but they treat me to daily performances in our house!! :)

Sooo adorable! My 4 year old says “That was pretty good singing, guy!”

Oh, Julia is adorable! And she points her toes so well. :)

My girls would love to take ballet, but we just can’t afford the lessons. Hannah especially has been asking, but if we let her do it then all 3 girls would want to. We’ve compromised by doing cheerleading – which she also loves.

Yes!! That’s great! I did ballet for years and taught little ones long before becoming a mommy. It was a blast, even though it took a lot of energy!! Julia is so sweet and talented!

Kaila loved ballet until last year. Now she’s all about gymnastics.
