Look who got pre-pointe shoes

Katie got asked to audition for the dance studio's pre-professional program that they have started up again this year.

And of course, she made it. So now she has ballet 5 days a week with the ballet master, who teaches the company girls. She is already showing much improvement and learning a great deal after only 2 weeks.

And of course, she was excited to receive a letter this summer, telling her that she would begin pre-pointe classes this fall. After 2 classes, she is beginning to get used to the feel of these rock hard shoes. The same as a pointe shoe but without the strong shank, so they don't go up on their toes yet.
