In My Daughter's World

Her passion towards ballet dancing is remarkable.
She attends ballet classes twice a week.
She's excited for their class grand recital this year.
She also enjoys being part of their school's Dance Interest Group.

She's my daughter and we're supportive of her passion.
But more than that, she makes me even prouder.
In her young mind, she never lets anything, even ballet, interfere with the most important treasure she can ever have - her education!

Last summer, my 7-year-old daughter was given a slot in the ballet class at Pasig Youth Development Center. It is part of the initiative project of Pasig City Mayor Bobby Eusebio that supports the development and potentials of Pasig City’s youth in different learning areas. Several kids had a chance to take classes in music, arts, dancing, baking, and a lot more.

My daughter has a great summer month at YDC. She learned more and even anticipated performing for the culmination activity. Unfortunately, she has to give up ballet for a day!

Their 'graduation activity' was scheduled on a school day. I told her that if she wanted to dance and attend the culminating program, she needs to be absent at school. She replied in an instant, saying "mommy, di ba mas important pumasok sa school..."

I'm so glad that she choose to be at school instead.
We're proud that she made the right decision.
I'm happy for she knows what her priorities are.
I know that she's starting on the right track.

Thankful too that her SGIS teachers instilled in her mind the value of education. She remembered what we've told her and the words of her teachers as well. School matters most.

Still, I appreciate the skills that my daughter had learned at YDC and the development in her personality. Thank you Mayor Eusebio for the wonderful youth project. And to Lariza of Moms World of Arts and Happiness for the support! It means a lot to me, my family and of course, my daughter.

In her little world, life is more about learning, and everything else will follow.

that is so good to hear :) my daughter is also enjoying ballet so much too! she has been at it for 1 year now and she also enjoyed her recital. coming from someone who doesn't like to perform on stage, that is a huge step!
