We love the ballet!

My girls love the ballet. I love fine arts and exposing them to the arts at a young age. There is a theater out of our local community college that has the Russian ballet come in once  a year for a show. I thought it would be great to do some ballet unit studies with them before a show. There are not a lot of unit studies made about the ballet, but the ones I found are really good!
