    I am so glad you shared her with us, we can only imagine the training and dedication it would take. Not to mention the flexibility!!!

    Love, love, love this story. How proud you must be of her and my gosh she is so graceful. I know she has put in a lot of hours and hard word to be where she is. I do hope you get to see her dance sometimes. Thanks for sharing. Such GOOD news!

  5. WOW! The photo of her flying through the air in the splits in front of the fountain is spectacular! How wonderful and yes even if one is a natural, to get to that level (Swan Lake!!! Be still my heart; how I love that ballet and clearly remember being taken to it by my mum so many years ago) requires such focus and dedication…I’m in awe!

  6. – oh that smile as she’s flying through the air –
    The two cousins look like sisters – really great post, Roseann. And if you need an ‘excuse’ to venture away from 100% quilt related blogging (which I don’t think is really necessary) then look at it this way: you’re still promoting the arts – only a different slice of them.
    Congrats to your grand-niece.
    As for you: Write on!

    Hello Roseanne; This is such a magnificent achievement for your Niece. I am so glad that you shared this post with us! No matter if we know a child or a young adult we love to hear their glorious adventures that lead to making their dreams come true! I truly enjoyed every picture you shared and the entire post! I look forward to reading any more updates on both of your Nieces. Have a fabulous 4th of July!!

  8. Such a beautiful balerina – and how wonderful to see that with hard work dreams do come true, and at such a young age – no telling the number of stamps in her passport and the stages she will grace. Love the story and photos….and yes, “to be continued” I hope – as I will be eager to read along!
