Last night, thanks to a Christmas present from my parents, Dustin and I were able to take Everly to her first professional ballet performance! We went to the Civic Center to take in Ballet Des Moines' spring show, Cinderella! Pretty dress and new sparkly shoes in tow, she got situated in her seat that liked to fold up, and was very very eager for that curtain to go up.
A nice intermission to stretch our legs and show off a few dance moves, inspired, of course, by the performance onstage...
I wish I could've taken pictures of Everly's cute little face as she took in the performance. She kept track of where everyone was on stage and off and enjoyed seeing the different costumes. She even made sure to whisper when she had something to say :) She did great!
The first of (hopefully!) many ballets to come!
