Ava Noel - Prima Ballerina

Over the weekend, Ava attended her first dance performance when she went to see her Aunt Lauren's senior dance company concert. Lauren was fabulous and Ava enjoyed every minute (except for when she had to leave during the second half because she was getting irritable). Ava was mesmerized by the choreography, costuming, and lighting. She was so inspired that she came straight home to start practicing so that one day she could be center stage. To begin, she first had to discover her feet.

Then she warmed-up by stretching her legs.

But the warm-up tired her out, so she decided she would try again the next day.

The next day she worked on positioning her arms...

...and pointing her feet.

And then called it a day (she's taking it slow).

What an adorable "tiny dancer." I can already see her incredible potential. We can't wait to see her first recital as a three-year-old with tap shoes and a sparkly costume. Won't that be fun!--Granny O
