Just Pictures: Prima Ballerina

This weekend I had the pleasure of traveling to the UK to visit some dear friends that I have not seen for a looooooooong time…7 years!  I was excited to spend some quality family time with them in the countryside and not in the busy city of London…I get enough city in Brussels.

Anyway, on the weekends my friend teaches ballet lessons to youngsters, one class of 4 year olds and one class of 7-10 year olds.  First off, let me say my pal has the patience of a saint to teach ballet to 4 year olds (which can be like herding cats), however; she was amazing with them!  They were cute and fun to watch.  The second class, with the older students, was also fun to observe.  One minute they were serious, straight-backed, straight-faced prima ballerinas and the next minute they were all giggles and smiles.  The studio was beautiful and the light was perfect.  I got carried away and took almost 150 pictures of the two classes trying to capture both their innocence and the adult-like seriousness that they maintained at times.  Below are pictures from the older class…don’t worry, not all 150 of them 🙂

Take care and thanks for reading!
