For Riley's birthday Gigi and Papa got her dance lessons and all the accoutrements. She has been waiting a long time for her chance to dance. This was before her first lesson and she was very excited.
She goes once a week and absolutely loves it. The first half of each class is tap and the second half is ballet. After each session the instructor brings all the parents in to watch them do a small routine. There is nothing cuter than a bunch of 2-4 year olds dressed in tutus strutting their darling dance moves.
Riley is one of the most enthusiastic girls in the class and she has an amazing memory for the choreography they learn. The teacher leads them through the moves, but we've noticed that most of the time Riley already knows what step is next. She follows her teacher intently and loves when it's time for us to come in and watch her dance.
She is a busy girl these days with dance, swimming and soon soccer, but I don't think any of the outfits are as cute as this one on our tiny dancer.
