Russian Dancer

Here is our little dancer, in Russian Pointes!

They have no “rolling” ability or flexibility in the shank: so she just “pops” up!  So lovely!!

She has been ready to quit, but then her momentum returns.  It can be a tough environment!  But she is developing endurance of heart as well as of body.  I wish my skin were so thick, dealing with the people she is dealing with!
