Ballerinas in action

Since daughter Rebecca was a toddler, she danced, copying the ballerinas on the television. The Nutcracker was her favorite.

A YMCA class gave our daughter, age 8, the opportunity to learn ballet steps. This column recounts a mother’s joy watching her daughter’s first official attempts at dance.

I can close my eyes and see the girls again as they stepped across the floor. The fun stays with me all these years later.

Enjoy the retelling of class four.
