Fun Baby Shower Activity


I attended Annette's baby shower this week. Each person attending was asked to pose for a picture, showing something they would teach the baby. I wanted to choose improv, but I couldn't think of a pose that would communicate that, so I settled for ballet. I asked Annette if her husband Peter would mind if I taught their son ballet. "I'll get back to you on that," she said.

I asked her yesterday what Peter said. "Only until he's 4," was the answer. Well, that's something. I used to help teach a ballet class for 4s and 5s—we called it the "baby" class. It's very good for early rhythm and coordination development. Oh, they were so cute—especially the one or two little boys. I can't wait to meet Annette's little boy. He will be very loved.

Great picture and funny story!

Well, you can teach my girls ballet if you want -- past the age of 4. :-) Right now their only dancing influences are the Wiggles and frankly, that has Ted a bit worried. :-)

Ballet for boys? Ugh. Sure there is another way to teach rythm? :P

Hey, Mark.

Don't knock it till you've tried it. :) My brother took ballet for a (very) short stint in high school. It's supposedly really good for athletes...develops grace and agility. And in a small town, not tights requirement!

sounds like the answer would be one that my husband would give...most likely 3 years old though! What a great picture, looks like you guys had fun!
