When I was a little girl I always wanted to have ballet lessons. Sadly my mum couldn’t afford to send me (and I don’t think they were such a big thing back then). I remember getting a ballet book out of the library and trying to teach myself the moves!
When my eldest daughter was 3 she begged and begged me for ballet lessons. Of course I was more than happy to take her. I found her a lovely class that is run by family friends of ours and I remember vividly taking her to that first lesson. I stayed to watch her to make sure she was ok and she was so excited! She wanted me to buy her the dance school uniform straight away, which I did because I could see how much she had enjoyed it.
Fast forward 6 years and she is still dancing! While everyone from her school class dropped away over the years she persevered and still loves going. She has made some fabulous friends through dancing and has performed three times in major London theatres and even performed at Alton Towers last weekend.
It’s a bug that she has passed onto her little sister too, which is great.
Ballet teaches them so many things, patience, discipline, dedication as well as the usual dancing skills. They both work really hard at it and have been rewarded with great exam results and they are really proud of their medals and certificates and they love every minute of it.
I am sure that you have heard of Frubes, and quite possibly even buy them for your children. They are the largest portable yoghurt brand and I find them indispensible for packing in lunch boxes as you don’t need to worry about lost spoons and messy yoghurt pots coming back in the lunchbox. They are also great for the kids because they contain vitamin D and calcium, both really important, especially for us as the girls are vegetarian. They are available in lots of flavours – strawberry, red berry, peach, and banana although strawberry is the favourite in our house.
We even freeze them in the summer to create easy frozen yoghurt pops which they have as after school snacks.
I am really pleased to see that Frubes have partnered with The Angry Birds Movie and are encouraging families to get dancing. If you visit their website you can make a cute video dance off between the Birds and Pigs. Your family can copy the moves and get moving and have a dance off of your own too! My girls loved playing with it this half term!
Frubes with The Angry Birds Movie are also running an exciting promotion until 31 October 2016. They are offering families the chance to win a holiday to the Bahamas! The competition includes a weekly draw to win a whole host of Angry Birds Movie merchandise, with a grand prize of a family holiday for four to spend six nights in the Bahamas! Head on over to their site for your chance to enter to win, and create your own dance off while you are there!
