Could this be the face of NYC Ballet's next prima ballerina?
That might be a stretch(no pun intended), but she is showing some early signs of interest.
Take a look her "barre work"
Reagan(or maybe I should call her LL Cool J with her uneven pant legs)was bound and determined to get her leg up on the "barre" and was not going to give up without a fight.
Her makeshift ballet barre is really the foot rest to our "bar"
I took these pictures Sunday afternoon after a little floor tea party broke up between the girls. That is why you see miscellaneous plates and spoons at Reagan's feet. I'll post those pictures later this week.
The day we met her in Changsha, we were handed a bag that contained everything we had sent in her carepackage while we were waiting for our travel approval. One of those items was a disposable camera so as soon as we returned to the states, we had the film developed.
Most of the photos were of the orphanage itself, there were a few of her playing, and then there were a few of her standing at this ballet barre against the mirrors in the big playroom. We saw this room the day we visited Chenzhou. It was a very clean and spacious and we were told that Reagan and the other babies her age, went to the playroom everyday between 9 & 11am and then again between 3 & 5pm to get their exercise.
My guess is that our "bar" brought back some memories of the "barre" in Chenzhou!
Anyone else think that ballet lessons might be in her future?
