The situation was as follows: my daughter's former ballet teacher (my daughter no longer goes to ballet) and my still gymnastics teacher asked me if I could come round to the school and take some pics of her youngest dancers (3 and 4 years old!) during practise. She wanted to have some new pics for the leaflets that she issues every month. Light in that room is pure horror. Fluorescent light squares behind opaque glass in the ceiling and two tiny windows. The light I have is non-existent. A halogen work light and my on-camera flash. So when I now show you pics of Fiona (3) and later of Liv (4 maybe?) and Louisa (3, I should guess) (the other two girl's parents did not give me release), keep this light situation in mind and just say I made the best out of it . 1. This was during warm-up when they did a game that made all five of these little girls run to and fro in the practise room (kind of tiny gym or so) 2. Another little song/game where they were to play jumpingjacks (all very clever little songs/games to teach them the first steps towards ballet dancing and they never realise what all they learn!!!) 3. And another game where they were all sitting on the floor playing at cooking some soup for which they have to pick things off trees etc (stretching) 4. At the end of their 45 minutes they have to walk from the far end of the room towards the teacher who is at the mirror, making themselves veeerrry tall, putting their hands on their hips and walking on tiptoe to say good-bye to the teacher 5. "Bye-bye, teacher!" They have to curtsey, of course . In Fiona's case I know she is only three. She told me as much. Actually, before the lesson she told me "I am already very big, I am already ... " stretching her little hand towards me with only the thumb, index and middle finger sticking out. So cute. There's still Liv and Louisa to come. By the way, I have seen the print-order lists ... looks good! The parents seem to like these!
