Three Cheers for the Red and White


Last week at ballet, we, (my ballet class,) were shown the costumes we were told we would wear for the recital. They were supposed to be white, but instead were yellow with age. Most of them had holes in the skirts.


But this week, the ballet teacher brought in new looking, beautiful, costumes. Some are all red, and some are all white. The torso is velvety, and the sleeves and skirt are silky, the sleeves fluttering almost to the elbow, and skirt fluttering almost to the knee. I am glad to have a tan leotard to go underneath it, because the back goes a little too low. I was allowed to choose whether I was red or white, and I chose red.
