Brighton's winter activity of choice (after several sessions of gymnastics) was to give ballet a try. There was an eight-week course offered through the community ed program and it really hit the mark for us. The teacher was a lovely woman who was great with the girls and kept it very low key and fun (she's a developmental psychologist and talked about how important movement is to children's development). Brighton learned some ballet technique and had a lot of fun. She didn't beg to do another session when it ended so a career ballerina she is not (whew) but I'm really happy I could make the experience happen for her.
