Daughter's Ballet Performance

My daughter, Skylah, had been taking ballet lessons at Effie Nañas Ballet for 8 months. Last December, she was included in a very special Christmas ballet show "A Bouquet of Dances" held at the Shangri-La Plaza Mall. It was her first ballet performance and we're all proud seeing her dance on stage.

She was part of the children's ballet class that performed ballet dance movements with the "Minamahal" song.

Ballet students from the higher levels interpreted popular Filipino music including Philippine Suite performances.

It's amazing seeing these lovely ballerinas dance the Itik-itik, the Malong dance, the love song Dahil Sa Yo, La Bayadere veil dance, fan dance and more.

Love the photos! Seeing them made me remember the time when my sister danced ballet. She was at it from the time she was still in 1st grade and up to the time she stopped when she graduated high school. She has trained under Effie Nanas too, was a full scholar of CCP. But in the end, she did not make a career out of it. Too bad for she was REALLY good and was always the lead in all the recitals. Nevertheless, the dancer in her never left. She is still graceful and her posture is beautiful.

I am happy for your daughter! I am sure that she will grow up to be a very graceful lady! I wish to be able to put my daughter to ballet school too in the future :)
