Part of the condition that Abby has (Rhombencephalosynapsis) causes her to spin her body on a regular basis. For years we wondered whether putting her in a ballet class would help or hurt her need to spin. Would it make her want to spin more? Would she fall? Would she be able to keep up in a regular ballet class?
We decided that with all of the progress she has made in PT over the past year it was time to give it a try. So for Christmas we signed her up for a class through the township, bought her ballet shoes and a leotard.
Her first class was on Wednesday and she was SO excited. When the time came to dance she got a little nervous. I know inside she gets anxious about being able to keep up with the other kids.
