Ballet exam

Dance classes in the UK are usually quite structured, with children working through a series of exams. This morning Star took her Primary ballet exam, along with an equally scatterbrained friend (they usually go into the exam in twos or threes). At the end of the exam they are expected to curtsey and formally thank the examiner and the pianist - in this instance Mrs.Rand and Mr.Moloney. The two little darlings had been entertaining themselves during rehearsals with a bit of creative variation: "Thank you, Mrs.Random ... thank you, Mr.Pepperoni". They assured us they remembered to do it correctly during the exam! The next exam is modern dance on Friday morning. This time they have to remember not to enliven a cat dance with a mock cat fight! At least they managed to look as though butter wouldn't melt ...

Love their names for the teachers. They'll be naturals at dreaming up "blog names" down the road ....
