Ballet Is Hard: Adorable Beginning Ballerina Struggles With First Position [VIDEO]

The tragedy of first position.

I’m still struggling with whether or not I want my daughter to take dance lessons. 

Where I live it is THE thing to do for little girls.  Sign ’em up, pay boat loads of money for the class and outfits that look like something Joan Collins would wear on Dallas or Knots Landing or whatever eighties drama in which she reigned supreme.  And the make up!  On the littlest girls.  I know it’s all in fun but it’s treading a little too close to those Toddler & Tiara beauty pageants for my liking. Or you’ve got something like this on your hands and I don’t know which is worse.

And what if she turned into one of those girls who lives for her dance class?  Then she’s probably going to be a cheerleader in high school and I know I should think that’s the greatest thing but I don’t want my daughter to be a cheerleader.  I know that seems odd and maybe you were a cheerleader and had the best time but I hate the whole world I experienced that comes with that territory.  I quit cheerleading, incidentally. But if my daughter wants to be a cheerleader I assure you I will sit the front row of every game.  Even though it’s possibly the most dangerous sport for girls

All this is a long way of introducing to you the cutest viral video clip ever.  The video is sweeping the internet and even has me thinking I’m being a big whiny helicopter parent for not wanting my daughter to take dance classes. A beginning ballerina struggles to get first position just right.  I’ve got to figure that after seeing the little sweetheart attempt first position mom and teacher collaborated to get the video.  Best home video ever:
