A little ballerina

What can be important for a 10 year old child? 
What can make its heart beat hard?
Many things, that’s for sure. But these last days, 
for my little girl it was her performance preparation 
for the 5 and 6 of July.

Six years in ballet classes since the age of 4. 
Each year, a little achievement.

This year, another one. 
“Once upon a dream” from “Sleeping Beauty” 
was the piece of music on which her ballet teacher 
made the choreography.

And the big day arrived!
Everything had to be perfect, 

her costume

her shoes,

her make-up

her coiffure.

Performance menu...
(with great pain, I assure you!) ....

At home, before the backstage.

Other parents sharing the same feelings 
standing in a slow-moving queue...

It was a wonderful performance for all the dancers and the public!

Some lovely flowers for our little ballerina 
in her bedroom balcony!

I hope all the children of this world can find the beauty of life 
and can taste it in their lifetime dream!



  1. Dear Olympia - how lovely - your daughter will remember these very treasured moments forever. Beautiful photographs.

  2. I forgot to mention that I noticed your Philippe Starck Louis Ghost chair.

  3. I am glad to hear the perfomance was great. My daughter (15 years old) is also a ballerina for more years, so I know how special it is to see her dancing! Your daughter looked like a beautiful princess!

    Big hugs, Ingrid

  4. Your daughter looks like a little fairy in her green, beautiful dress. That was certainly a special day for your whole family! Happy Sunday, Olympia.

  5. must be a proud mom....!!....she is so cute !! from me...x !

  6. Lieve Olympia,

    Wat een pracht van een dochter als ballerina,alles tot in het kleinste detail verzorgd voor de belangrijke uitvoering.

    Kan me heel goed voorstellen hoe trots je dan bent als moeder,
    ik ben dat ook altijd als oma wanneer we naar optredens gaan kijken en luisteren waarin onze kleinzoon(vandaag 18 jaar)een muziekspektakel voor volle zalen ten gehore brengt met slagwerkgroep,
    en kleindochter 13 jaar speelt vanaf 8 jaar Alt Sax en heeft al verschillende diploma's op zak.

    Heerlijk wanneer kinderen zich kunnen en mogen ontplooien in hun liefhebberijen.

    Fijne zondag gewenst en lieve groet!!!


    1. You certainly are a very lucky granma sweet Ger!Wish I could be at your place one day!

  7. Dearest Olympia,
    What a DREAM! You surround your sweet daughter with so much beauty... Look at her room; the beautifully crocheted pillow, the lovely and delicate rose bud bed linens. The armoire, her fairy tale chair, the beautiful armoire... No wonder that she just can be a rose bud herself; developing in each stage of beauty and performance. Love the flowers and lanterns alongside that human queue... so romantic and also her bedroom balcony received lovely flowers. You say the performance menu was with great pain but those fruits look lovely and I would eagerly take them any time.
    Congrats for this achievement and hope that together you enjoy summer!

  8. You have a very talented daughter,
    she is very beautiful and romantic in
    here ballet dress. You can be a proud

  9. She looks beautiful! I'm so glad she is enjoying it and learning more all the time. My little girl just started ballet last year at four years old and I hope she will want to continue with it too. You must be so proud, thank you for sharing.

  10. She looks beautiful! It is fabulous, as a parent, to Watch our children flourishing with a true passion.

    Happy days and many happy years to come!

    Wat een mooie dochter heb je en wat ziet ze er uit als een prachtig prinsesje in haar mooie jurk.
    Spannend zo'n dansuitvoering. Alles moet tot in de puntjes klaar zijn.
    Wat fijn dat ze de kans krijgt om zich te ontplooien en dat ze ouders heeft die haar stimuleren.
    Ze heeft een prachtige kamer met balkon.

    A very lovely greeting,

  30. BEAUTIFUL photos and a fantastic message to
    all children in the world. When I see my
    grandchildren and all the possibilities
    they have and, which they receive, I am
    a very proud grandmother. But so many
    children don't have those possibilities,
    but we can hope, some day will come...
