Hi! It’s me again, Millicent Mouse
Welcome to my blog
This week we’re going to talk about pointe or toe shoes.
I can’t wait! I want to dance on my toes like a prima ballerina.
Here is a picture of a lady on toe (pointe) shoes:
Doesn’t she look beautiful?
Here is a picture of the first ballerina to wear toe shoes when she danced:
Her name was Maria Taglioni and she lived a long, long time ago.
Here’s a video of a woman dancing on toe shoes in a competition:
I practice ballet every day so I can dance like the lady on the video some day.
Have your mom or dad print out this picture for you so you can color it:
Please come back next week. We are going to talk about ballet barres.
