today - (lots of pics)

wow what a proud mom day! today was my sweet daughter's first princess dance class. the parents were invited to sit and watch, so i took the opportunity to take a few photos. i tried not to be too distracting. i was beaming the whole time. we all were. it was uplifting and inspiring, and made me thankful for this day. i will treasure these moments. the shopping trip last night for the ballet shoes, tights & dress was pretty special too, but to see her in class today--it was just magical. i had to rush home and connect the camera. i sent out a photo email straight away to the fam & made a new blog header & just had to share! i'm sure you'll be seeing some of these pics on some crafty projects soon! she sure makes my heart happy!

The class music is from the Disney Princess movies.
There were several songs today from The Little Mermaid!

the girls warmed up with some general dancing around:

They shimmied with some scarves...

They played the Freeze Dance with a Princes Pose at each pause:

then it was time to get serious ;)
Here she is, her first time at a barre learning 'first position'

her first plea:

learning to walk on tiptoes:

There was also dancing with Princess wands, hopping on one foot, learning Princess twirls and curtsey's!
at the very end of class, everyone had a smile on their face.
this shot sums it up perfectly (My total fave!!)

OMG!!! I love the very last one. Even though you can't see her face, the joy is captured.
