I think I have already posted here about Tippy Toes Ballet., but not for a while.
My good friend Emma and I have a written a ballet syllabus for tiny ballerina's, which Emma has been teaching for a year now in Bayswater, London. I started teaching ballet in Hitchin this term and so far I am loving every minute of it. It is such a joy to see my little prima's every week and I know Emma feels exactly the same.
I think that ballet is such a wonderful activity for little people, it teaches grace, posture, coordination, and rhythm, and gives children such a sense of achievement.
Here is an old picture of me at 8 years old getting ready my first ever professional performance at The Kings Theatre in Edinburgh:
Emma is going to give me in trouble for posting this one! Here we are aged 17 at ballet school getting ready to do a piece based on a Degas painting:
How lovely it is to take what we have learned and pass it on. Surely this is one of life's great joys?
