After just three weeks of dance classes, Grace is starting to practice at home.
She likes to stand like a flamingo, and she’s recently learned to “open the book,” which I believe is called first position.
Her favorite thing, though, is to pirouette.
After one particularly vigorous series of pirouettes, she paused and put her hand on Joe’s head.
Hold on! she said, out of breath. The earth is moving!
Turns out she made herself a little dizzy.
