thats why most teachers say kids should be at least 5/6 years old until they start dance classes. they should be aware of their bodies, have balance, etc.

Meg said...

Allison said...

this is so sweet! she made me smile, what a doll <3 and i like how kind her teacher is too, aww. perfection for a monday morning, thank you!

Mrs. Biscuit said...

That is seriously one of the cutest things I've ever seen! She's clearly trying so hard and it's so cute to watch her try to move her feet, look over at the other girls and try to copy their feet, and then lose balance! What a cutie!


And They Lived Happily Ever After...

She kinda invents her own dance as she is trying to get the magic "V" shape with her feet. What a sweetheart.

Nuha said...

oh my goodness, hehehehehe soooooo stinkin cute!!!!

Sara said...

Aw, when she tried to move her feet with her hands (just like her teacher did), it was just so adorable.

When I used to teach preschoolers through kindergartners, we always put little silver or gold stars (like teachers use) on the instep heels of their ballet shoes, and would tell the girls to point their stars to the mirrors. :)

Dancing Branflake said...

Ha! My friend posted this to my wall and I watched it so many times! Let me tell you... I can completely relate to this video. But I never write a kid off because the ones who don't give up are the ones who become the best dancers.

how cute

Cath said...

She's got so much determination in her little body. I love two things, in particular here. One: How her hands and arms are trying to mimic what her feet are suppose to be doing and Two: The teacher's sweet patience. Thanks for sharing. It's a real pick-me-up on a Monday morning.

god bless you for bringing this into my life. the way her arms and legs are incapable of doing two different things at once...uh-dor-uh-bull.

emmakaren said...

I think I watched this ten times and laughed till I had tears in my eyes each time. Best youtube video ever!

N said...

That is SO cute! I couldn't help but watch it a few times. It totally melted my heart when she had to use her hands to get the position. Those wobbly legs!

Mo said...

How adorable! Those darn shoes!

I really hope she applies this type of perseverance to everything else in her life.

And the teacher is so nice!

This is so adorable. Children are so earnest.

Amanda Swann said...

Laughed my butt off!! Needed that.
I could so see my little one doing this, but she'd actually break down into tears after like the 3rd try.

Beatriz Craven said...

In tears... that was SO HYSTERICAL!! I couldn't help but wonder how the parents kept from busting out laughing.. I would have died. Does that mean I will make an awful parent?? haha! Too funny. What a sweetheart.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Sarah said...

I was the exact same child in my ballet class 18 years ago, haircut and all. I sent the video to my family and they totally agree!

Gracey said...

This is just too cute! Love it :)

Corilu Designs said...

I agree with you Beatriz, when my son played soccer at age four, all the boys were running after that ball, well,
not my son, he was too busy lying on his stomach picking all the clovers out of the ground, and you know what?, I was in stitches that when I was filming the camera was shaking so badly because I was laughing sooo hard. I think with that determination that little girl is going to be president some day!!!! LOL.

wildchild said...

she is so cute! i want one

Joanna said...

Her little haircut reminded me of Anna Wintour, so that made it all the funnier - picturing AW struggling to get into first position!

Anonymous said...

We should watch and appreciate what our children are working so hard on - whether or not it is at the pace of the others. Sometimes we really have to pay attention to see how hard they are working on getting control of their bodies! Adorable!!!! This little girl has such determination!

Natasha said...

Toooo cute!

Anonymous said...

ha! that had me cracking up, yet totally inspired by that adorable girl's determination!
i'm contemplating signing up my little one for ballet at joffrey--i can totally see her contorting all over the place like that! so cute--thanks for sharing!

Cath said...

Joanna, I'm thinking, "It's ok if your shoes aren't doing it." will have to be my new motto. (Though I'm not sure my shoes would appreciate being blamed for my blatant lack of coordination.)
Anyhow... back to watching the video for the five zillionth time. Boy, it's a keeper.

The Little Hen House said...

My husband and I just cried tears of laughter while watching that poor little girl. That is SO our oldest daughter. She is her father's child, that's for sure. Thanks for the laugh!

Audrey Lim said...

Sweet little angels,she is so adorable and i appreciate that she is trying hard to stand in a perfect position.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=diKj68Rb_xk This video totally made my day a beautiful one..Thanks to you...

Shalyn said...

Adorable little girl, but I'm afraid that teacher needs to be fired. She is teaching them all the wrong stuff which can lead to serious joint injuries for those girls. I hope someone has managed to inform the parents of those girls that.

Oh my goodness! That was overwhelming cuteness! Headache!!
