Ballerina Girls

The girls recently performed in the production of "Awaken" with their ballet studio.

Kaitlyn started in ballet this past September and has enjoyed it alot!

Michelle didn't start until March, but with her backround in gymnastics, she surprised her teachers by becoming one of the best in her class. She has been told that she possesses alot of natural skills that will enable her to reach a very high level as a ballerina. It's nice that she has this new area to focus on in her life!
