Elinor began a ballet/tap class in February after seeing a few videos of ballerinas. She was happy to see that Alina, one of her preschool classmates, was also in her dance class. Alina took Ellie by the hand that first week and led her into the dance room, where she introduced her to the teacher. "This is Ellie. She doesn't talk much." And talk she didn't. Every week she came to dance class and listened to the teacher's instructions and danced her little heart out and didn't make a peep. Some days she loved it and some days she wasn't so sure about it.
