BALLET for Dummies: 101

Disclaimer:  Mom is crazy!!!  The strangest things remind her of stranger things.

This series of pictures reminded mom of when my human sister was taking ballet lessons.  According to the story
the ballet teacher had a series of phrases she said to teach little
ones ballet terms and make it fun to learn.
The term Mom remembers the most is

Plie (bend to the deepest position then) and push the floor away".  

When the teacher said this phrase girls, the class was supposed to 
slowly squat keeping their feet flat.  The rise quickly.
So here goes my interpretation using another term.


I'm standing on my toes.....
Pirouette(whirl about on the toes)
 I'm whirling
 I'm pushing the floor/cat tree away with my 
thunder thighs.
To all true ballerinas I apologize!!
Hugs Madi just the Messenger

  2. I think it was beautiful! Truly graceful, Madi. Mommy said it was much more delicate than when us mancats take the floor. MOL!
    Happy Wednesday from your bestest mancat, Prancer Pie.

    Madi, you are one very graceful girl. We can see why your Mom was reminded of ballet when she saw your performance.

  13. Miss Madi, you are a prima ballerina in our eyes! Mom sometimes likes to pretend that she is a ballerina and does all that whirly stuff around the kitchen and all that comes to mind for us are those dancing hippos from Fantasia *BOL*
