Lily at the Barre

The world of ballet has been graced with many beautiful and talented ballerinas. Among them are Anna Pavlova, Margot Fonteyn, Maria Tallchief and Gelsey Kirkland. And now comes Lily S.

Yes, our Lily has entered the study of the dance.

Here she is at her first lesson.

Such grace!
Such charm!

An Odette in the making!
Waiting for her cue!
The finale!

And she is wearing her mother's first ballet slippers!
