Gymnasts and Dancers

We signed the four younger girls up about a month ago at the community center for classes. Danya and Thumbelina are taking a gymnastics class together. They both are really enjoying it so far. Danya was in a beginning tumbling class when she was about 4, but this class is part of a real gymnastics program.

Gloria and Snow White just started a tap/jazz/ballet combo dance class. Their first day of class didn't go well. Snow White had an accident in the first 10 minutes and had to come home to change her clothes. Gloria was terribly embarrassed to be sent to the parent waiting room to tell what had happened. They are both looking forward to the second class which is tomorrow evening. Daniel took them out this weekend to buy ballet and (shockingly expensive) tap shoes and black tights that are required for the class. The hard part is telling them that they can't wear them around the house. We are allowing them to wear them if they're practicing, though. Hopefully, Daniel will be able to take some pictures of them tomorrow.

Just a hint for the dance shoes....consignment shops! I couldn't make it through tons of dance classes without them!
