Last Saturday, Marguerite's dance school had a "viewing" day. Most of the time, they don't allow parents or guardians inside the studio itself, but every now and then, they open the class to parents, relatives, friends... anybody who would be interested in seeing the children in action. So off we went, plus Marguerite's Tita Patch (my cousin) to watch. There are 4 four-year-olds in Marguerite's class (she happens to be the youngest and the rowdiest) and one teacher who is the epitome of patience. Let's just say that with people watching them, the excited girls amped the usual mayhem to a fever pitch. After that, I can really appreciate the kind of dedication that goes into teaching ballet to little kids.
Pictures for now. I might post videos later (since I still have to resize them - but oh, all the horseplay will be more evident in them, lol). You can totally see Marguerite having her own agenda in the last two pics and Tita Patch and I trying to get her to pay attention from the sidelines. Sigh.
