Our Sugar Plum Fairy

Ella Bella has been taking dance class through The Dance Connection at preschool for over a year now and has had so much fun learning how to dance with her classmates. Each January they have a little sneak peak for us parents to see what our kids are learning and how much fun they are having. It is a lot of fun watching her learn and grow and enjoy dance just as much as I did as a little girl.
This is her dressed as the Sugar Plum Fairy from The Nutcracker leaping over a snowflake placed on the ground by her teacher. This action shot just makes me beam so proudly!
And here she is letting her personality shine. Ella loves the camera, loves to perform, and seriously adores the stage and spotlight.

There are 5 positions in dance (she knew that when the teacher asked) and she showed us each position, this should be #3.

This was just too cute and such good form. She is doing a butterfly here, they have their butterflies fly, land, stretch their necks while they look for Disney Princesses, and this is her hiding from one of them (such a smart teaching tool).
