Maybe. My oldest grand niece just started taking some ballet lessons. Her Mom said that she just said one day that she wants to become a ballerina so they looked for a ballet school in the area and they found one. They enrolled her for summer classes and she loved it. Now she wants to continue taking lessons after school hours. I say good for her. Her birthday is not in a few months but I already started looking for dancer gifts at ballet gift shop online so I can put it in the box I'm sending home in a month or two. Hopefully the little girl is still into ballet when that box arrives. Fingers crossed.
