Ballet Festival

japanese girls ballet dancing

This past Sunday, Ellie was invited to Maya‘s Ballet Festival in Kodaira, just west of Tokyo. The quality of the performance was surprising. The kids were much better than I was expecting, and the costumes were stunning for an amateur, show-off-what-your-kid-has-learned-in-class type of event.

After the Ballet Festival (小平市民文化祭のバレエ・フェスティバル), some pictures were taken, and then we jumped in a cab to head off for dinner, which was even more fun.
