So I signed Violet up for ballet at Fairytales and Tutus yesterday. Granted, she is only 18 months old and technically not yet the minimum 21 month age for the class. But from watching Ivy, she can already do an arabesque, a plie, a tendu, and go on her tippy toes. I think that qualifies her to start formal training.
And being a baby is no excuse. In the words of the (in)famous Colbert, "I was a baby once, I walked it off!"
