When I grow up, I want to be a Ballet Dancer

Ballet dancers tell stories through dance movements. If you’ve ever seen Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” during the holidays, then you know the story of Clara and her nutcracker doll. (I loved the scary dancing rats, didn’t you?)

Whether dressed in rat costumes or not, ballet dancers are the strongest and most graceful of all dancers. That’s because ballet dancing involves smooth, careful movements that are difficult to perform. Mother said I’d never be a dancer because I have two left feet. But I feel lucky. My Aunt Creepolla has three!

And if you think only women can be ballet dancers, think again, my human friend! Men make good ballet dancers, too! In fact, big burly football players often take ballet lessons to improve their balance and coordination.

Idea time...
See what it’s like to be a ballet dancer. Stand on the ball of your left foot while stretching your right leg out straight behind you. Hold your arms out for balance, but do not move or wiggle! Hold this position for one minute. Ask an adult to time you. Then write a few sentences about your experience.
