Her first day she wore pigtails which I found out afterward were a hindrance to her participation in class. She flat out refused to do some of the things Miss Julia asked her to do - lay down on her back and do leg lifts, wear a princess crown, etc.
Afterward we had the following conversation:
Me: "Why didn't you want to do some of the things Miss Julia had the class do?"
Kate: "Because I was wearing pigtails." (Duh, Mom?)
Me: "Would you be able to do them if you wore a ponytail?"

Who Knew?? The class has been so good for her to learn to listen to instructions, take turns (also a struggle on the first day), dance around like a mouse, and have fun with other little girls her age.
Steve took her on the last day and had to admit it was amusing to watch although I am pretty sure her dancing days are over. Kate always chose a sucker as her treat at the end of class - that made Miss Julia top notch in Kate's book.
