Ballet Class

I brought XY for a ballet trial class yesterday. She's been asking me to let her learn for quite some time already. There was once when she followed my PILs to repair their car in a workshop, she 'performed' in front of a big mirror. She put both her hands high up, tip toed and twirled. She told Ye Ye and Mah Mah she's a ballerina. I wondered where she's imitating that from. Hi-5, maybe?

She seems to be very eager to learn ballet. Not sure if she's really interested in the dance or she just wants to wear the costume. I have to admit, li'l girls look really cute in tutus. During the trial class, she was able to follow the teacher's instructions. Of coz her moves aren't very graceful but at least she's able to follow the simple steps. It was very different when she attended the hip hop trial class (before CNY). She was quite lost. Probably coz the students have been learning for at least 2 months already. And now that she's attended both classes, she's very sure she wants to learn ballet. She said she doesn't like hip hop.

The class is once a week, 45 minutes per session. Monthly fee RM45. I've registered her (registration fee RM25) and bought the outfit (RM159), which consisted of a leotard, tutu, socks and shoes. They don't have stock for the leotard as I wanted one size bigger than the one she tried, which was just right. Have to allocate a little more space for her growth. If not, will have to buy a new one in just a few months' time. Hopefully their stock will arrive before her class starts next week. Will show you the li'l 'ballerina' when she's in full costume.

Yay, XY got off to a nice start already! With her interest, I'm sure she'll learn fast and be the ballerina in no time! =)

Ballet is a good dance. Well, I like dancing and I hope my daughter would like it too. Anyway, she's still too young to learn dancing.

Can't wait to see XY in her tutu.

slavemom said...

Joanne, I'm sure Nyn wud love dancing too, got ur genes mah. :)

Mummy In Vain said...

it's good that she has interest, though it may becoz of the costume at first. at least she wants to be beautiful on the leotard. not like mine, she doesn't like the costume, and not much interest in ballet class lately...sigh...

suesue said...

In Kajang Prima ah, it will be too far for me d ler.

jazzmint said...

Health Freak Mommy said...

RM45 a month is cheap. Aly's ballet class is RM60 pm, once a week, 1 hr per session.

slavemom said...

Jacelyn, I hope her interest will sustain. :)

Sue, no dance centre near ur plc?

Jazz, I suppose so. I din chk out the other ctrs ard my area.

Shireen, it comes up to be the same. Mine's RM45 for 45 mins, where as yours is RM60 for 1 hr.
