Today was out first annual Toddler Nutcracker Ballet. Rita is a marvelous dance teacher who led the "ballet class" for my two and three year old group.
We had costumes and props and a LOT of enthusiasm.
The class began with Rita telling a short "toddler version" story of The Nutcracker. She had them do some warm ups and stretching, and then the music and dancing began. We handed out different props for the various movements.
Such a fun time for the children to move to music with a real ballerina.
