We Danced

We Danced

Hi Everyone!  Welcome back to my blog!  It seems like such a long time since the last blog, but it’s only been a week!

Anyway, I’m sure you guys know I like sports a lot, but now my softball season is over (we won the championship!  Such a cool feeling!), and I wanted something to do in it’s place.  I still do karate, but there is something else that I’ve wanted to do for a long time and I just have never done it.  I remember when I was young I wanted to be a ballerina, so I asked my mom if she could take me to a ballerina class.

The class was pretty intense. I didn’t expect it to be so hard!  When you see ballerinas dancing they look so beautiful, but they must practice a lot!

There were three other new girls, other than myself (and one boy who I recognized from school.  That was weird because he seemed so sad at school, but he seemed so happy in class).  Two of the girls just went along with everything the teacher was saying, but the last girl was having a lot of trouble.  We had a short break for a little while and I saw that she was standing in the corner.  She looked sad, so I figured I would talk to her.

“Hi, I’m Elsie,” I said and held out my hand.

“I’m Becky,”  She said.  It looked like she was crying.

“Are you crying?”  I asked.

She shook her head for a minute, but then looked at me and nodded.

“I’m too fat to do this,” she said.

“What does that have to do with anything?”  I asked her confused.

Just then the teacher called us over.  She had asked for everyone to do the short dance she taught us in front of the class.

“They’re gonna make fun of me,” Becky said.

“It’s ok, we wont let them!”  I said and grabbed her hand.  I pulled her in front of the class and we danced.  I think Becky was better than I was!

“Great job Becky!  Great job Elsie!”  The teacher said.

The class clapped as we sat back down and the boy (his name was Harry) got up and danced.  He was probably the best in the class!

“Thanks,” Becky said behind me.

I turned around and Becky was sitting behind me, but she finally had a smile on her face.

“That was fun,”  Becky said.

“I know!  I think I’m going to like this class,”  I said and turned back to watch Harry finish his dance.

I cant wait to see what we get to learn next week in class!

Anyway, time to go to school!  See everyone next week!

Here I go!
