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.
