sleepy ballerinas

The ballerinas I teach on Saturday mornings like to play games.  

This probably isn't news to you since they are 4-5 years old, and I'm pretty sure 99.9% of children in this age group like to play games.

Anyway, one of their favorites happens at the beginning of ballet.  We let them all put on a crown, hand them a wand, and tell them to, "go to sleep".    

Good night sleepy little ballerinas!

Then, we turn on the music (usually the soundtrack to a Tinkerbell animated flick), and they all "wake up" and prance around showing off their best ballet moves.


Frolicking about...

And sometimes they stop for a quick pose.

Real ballerinas always know when there's a camera around.

Today is my Friday, friends!  I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend and a very hoppy Easter.  I'm brainstorming a brunch that I'm excited to share next week :)


  1. I can see why you'd want to work there - the kiddos are so cute! I always loved working with the 7th graders, but they aren't nearly as cute as the little ones.

    Y'all get good Friday off this year? That's nice! Enjoy it!

  2. This is seriously the cutest thing I've ever seen!! They are precious!

  3. my friday too!! so so so adorable those little girls!
