Froggy started her second year of ballet today. She was so proud of herself. She moved up to Ballet 1 instead of PreBallet. She was not scheduled to move up for another year since the expectation is two years at each level. However all her friends moved up and she wanted to stay with them.
We talked long and hard about expectations. I warned her that if she went into this class it would be lots of work and lots less time playing. She still wanted to do it to be with her friends. I talked to the director who agreed that it was worth a try.
So the first class was wonderful. Her teacher had nothing but praise for her focus and dedication and progress from last year.
