Malaina performed in her first ballet recital on Friday. The Capitol City Dance Center performed La Bayadere at the Drake Performing Art Hall, and Malaina's Creative Movement class participated in the role of snakes, complete with snake charmer. She did not have any stage fright, and did a great job in her part. We're so proud of her!
She was a little wishy-washy about going to dance class towards the end of the year, but I think performing in the recital (and having the chance to watch the more advanced dancers) has convinced her to continue taking lessons in the Fall. We'll move from a half hour class to an hour class, and they will even learn a little tap dancing! The Website is here Capitol City Dance Center, and I like them for their small class size, close location, and reasonable price.
