This year marked Isabelle's 5th year of classical ballet, tap, and jazz training with her
dance company. Week after week, she has strapped on her ballet slippers and perfected
her technique, spending hours at the ballet barre. She's a natural born performer, a lover
of the lights and stage, and watching her grow as a dancer has made me the happiest
mama. When your child has a passion, a real interest in learning and growing in their
craft, it is incredibly inspiring. I've never pushed her or put any expectations on her,
I've tried to just sit back and allow her to navigate her own way through her hobbies,
delving deeper only when she has been ready. With dance, she dove in head first,
allowing herself to fall deeply and madly in love with the art of creative movement.
Isabelle, we are so incredibly proud of you for all that you have accomplished this year.
I cried as I watched you on stage, your smile shining brighter than any star in the sky.
You are so talented and beautiful, a true joy to watch. I pray that you will always
find peace and happiness doing things you enjoy, allowing your heart to grow in strength
and faith in yourself. For you can do anything, my sweet girl, that you set your mind to.
Here's to another amazing year, tiny dancer!!
