Annabelle loves dancing and ballet is her favorite art of dance.
Her dream is to be a ballerina, wearing the white beautiful tutu and the ballet shoes.
Her favorite move is the Arabesque which is on one leg with the other leg raised behind the body and extended as a straight line.
Her second favorite move is a Pirouette, which is a complete turn of the body on one foot point or demi pointe, she loves the spin.
She sees herself performing for Royalty or Presidents.
She thinks, 'Oh what fun this will be,' as she twirls in her room jumping and falling.
She doesn't care because she is a ballerina.
Her mother signed her up for ballet classes; she is so excited that she can't wait to go.
Today is her first ballet class.
"Yippee," she yells as she twirls around the living room waiting for her mom to find her keys.
"OK Annabelle lets go," her mom said.
"OK ma, hurry or I'm going to be late."
"No you're not, OH wait, did you get your shoes?"
"Mom I'm wearing them!"
"Oh my, that's right," they both laughed.
Annabelle made it to the dance studio and saw all the other little girls in their tutu's twirling around.
She couldn't wait to do her two favorite dance moves.
Her teacher is Miss Lilly, who is jumping and spinning around.
"Wow," Annabelle said.
"OK girls let's start class," said Miss Lilly.
All the girls had their turn, twirling and dancing.
Now it was Annabelle's turn, she was so excited.
"OK Annabelle it's your turn, let's see what you can show us." Miss Lilly said. "OK Miss Lilly, I have been practicing before my mom signed me up; I just love ballet."
Annabelle was in the middle of the room and performed her moves.
She fell once but that didn't stop her, she was determined to show Miss Lilly she could be a ballerina.
"Thank you Annabelle, I see that you have been practicing."
"Yes Miss Lilly."
"Good girl. Girl's make sure that you all keep practicing like Annabelle. We have our first ballet recital next month and we need lots of practice."
Annabelle was excited to get the credit; she couldn't wait to tell her mom.
Miss Lilly dismissed the class and Annabelle told her mom the good news.
The end of the month came and it was time for the ballet recital Annabelle was ready.
Her families were in the audience for support.
The ballet recital started and she performs next.
She is dancing and twirling on stage.
Finishing her last jump she couldn't believe that she hadn't fallen.
With a big smile and a curtsy she ran to her teacher; the audience applauded.
"Girls, you all made me so proud," Miss Lilly said, "you will all get trophies!"
On the way home Annabelle had her trophy, and she knew that she had what it takes to be a ballerina.
