Sherilyn’s Grade 2 Ballet Exam

Today marks another milestone in rascal #2’s diary. She sat for her Grade 2 RAD exam.  I think I was more excited and anxious than she was.  My 3 girls, they are all cool cucumbers who never seem to panic even in dire straits.  Bad, no? Well, there are pros and cons to being a cool cucumber.  I woke up early as usual, skipped exercising to get this dilly dallier ready, made sure she ate and drank the proper stuff so that she would not be too full and throw up when she danced. Had to let her skip drinking milk lately due to phlegm and only fed her with Manuka honey, fruits and a slice of cream crackers for breakfast today.  The ballerinas had to be at the dance centre by 10am today.

The 3 ballerinas in team A. The ballerinas in her class were split into 2 groups and her  group was tested first by one Ms Richards from overseas.

My graceful ballerina.  A whiny samseng she is but once she dons on her ballerina costume to shimmy and strut her stuff, oh my, she is instantly transformed into another sweet little girl, whom I really adore 🙂

Day in and out, this rascal has been practicing her dance movements very hard and I sure hope that she’ll pass.  And the good news for us parents is that their classes will be trimmed down from twice and thrice weekly to only once a week starting April through September this year, yippppeeeee!  And this gives our wallets a breather too 😉  Effective October 2013, the drilling and twice-thrice a week classes begin again for Grade 3 exam!  This has to go on until this rascal passes all 15 grades, which by then, she would have even started going to college!

  1. wah .. she is very discipline nye .. Malaika’s BFF has already showed no much interest in ballet after 1 year of real ballet training …

    Keep it up, Sherilyn ..

  2. Hi there! My daughter is also going to Grade 1 RAD and the school has asked me to buy the character skirt and shoes (similar to what Sherilynn is wearing).

    Would you be interested in selling any of your pre-loved skirts and shoes? My girl is in Std 1 and is of average size. Do let me know soonest possible.

  3. Oops, upon closer look, I noticed some slight differences on the stripes for the skirt. Also, the shoes at my ballet school in SJ have elastic band across the front.

    Sigh… looks like I have to pay full price and buy from the teacher…

  4. Lindsey, everything related to ballet is expensive and Sherilyn outgrows them very fast too (costume, tutu, character skirt, shoes, heels). It’s quite an expensive hobby to have 🙂
