Alycia Is Learning Ballet!

Yesterday daddy and I brought Alycia and Sherilyn for a free trial baby ballet class. I had no intention of sending them for ballet class so soon. I thought the earliest I will sent Alycia will be next year when she turns 5 years old.

Before the class, Alycia kept telling me that she doesn’t want to attend ballet class. Sherilyn on the other hand appeared very excited and kept dancing like a ballerina by putting her hands up in an arch shape and tip toeing her feet. She had seen little girls dance ballet in one of the Barney DVDs and liked ballet very much.

However, at the trial class, the unexpected happened. Alycia was happily following the teacher’s instructions and steps while Sherilyn just stood frozen staring at the teacher in complete awe. She was really stunned with the little girls all dressed up in ballerina costume and cute tutus and was trying to comprehend what the teacher was doing. Minutes later, the teacher brought her out of the room. We were later told that the minimum age for acceptance into the baby ballet class is 4 years old.

As Alycia has shown so much interest in learning ballet during the trial class, we immediately signed her up. The first formal lesson will begin on Wednesday next week at 6:45pm for 1 hour. The fees will be RM60 per month once a week or RM110 per month for twice a week. I signed her up for the once weekly class. One of the reasons why Alycia was willing to attend the ballet class was because her little aunty (hubby’s 5 year old cousin) was also going to join the class and they are best of friends.

The ballerina costume cost RM225, which consists of a pair of stockings, the pink bodysuit, a tutu, a scarf / hanky and a pair of ballerina shoes.  The costume is very costly as everything is imported from the UK.   The pair of delicate stockings alone cost RM55!

I jokingly told Alycia that she has to lose some weight coz her little belly was protruding in the tight ballerina suit and she really looked like a ‘fei por zhai’  (little fat girl).  I hope Alycia will love ballet and excel in it and not like mummy who learned ballet for 3 years and quit.

  1. hehe, reminds me of the time when i learned ballet too. Yeah, the costumes were already extremely expensive when i learnt. Alycia looks so sweet and pretty in her costume. Hehe, maybe she will loose some weight after learning ballet. Oh, and just to let u know, one mother at Sunday School was so “geram” with her cute little chubby fair pinkish cheeks.

  2. Awwww…. she is so sweet in the ballet costume. Wah really expensive hor the costume and the stocking cost so expensive one ah. I bought few of those stocking for Le-Ann when I was in Europe and it’s quite cheap one la.

    Chanel…. who knows, very soon you will hv a girl to dress up in pink too 🙂

    AnnieQ…. hopefully, otherwise, it will be a waste of our money.

    Sasha…. who knows you will also have a bb girl very soon, and you can let her learn ballet 🙂

    Girlie…. I think my hubby and I felt worse that she is left out…. and of course when we came home, Sher kept repeating what she saw through the glass door at the dance center. And that made me feel bad that she can’t join Alycia in the class.

  4. When my sis was learning ballet, she always had me purchase the stockings and shoes from here ‘cos it is slightly cheaper than Msia. Let me knw if you need folks can bring it back and you can pick it up..since they live in T.D. too. Email me if you’re interested.
