JE is naturally quite flexible, which helps. Then after 3 lessons, I noticed there were some younger girls around. So I decided to bring SE too. Fetching one girl to gymrama is the same as fetching two. And this also means I don't have to sit through two sessions of gymrama in future, as in an advanced class for JE and a junior one for SE. Lazy mom to the core! Heh heh.
I didn't take pictures for the first 3 classes as I didn't want JE to start feeling self-conscious. These pictures are from the first class with SE. SE wasn't happy about joining, but luckily she did try to follow instructions as best as she could.
Trying on shoes for size
Running round the area for warm-up
(Look at short and chubby SE hehe)
The teachers are slightly fierce and there's some shouting going on. Guess they do have to maintain discipline. I'm glad the 'Little Gymnasts' class is conducted in English though, unlike the more advanced classes.

(The more advanced class behind are doing harder ones)
Hopefully the girls stick with it. If they can cope, this will train them in discipline, flexibility, strength, confidence and all the good stuff.
At the end of that first class, there were sweets for girls who'd won some competition. SE apparently expected one. And was totally disappointed that she didn't get any. JE had to carry her back to me looking like this. Poor kiddo haha.
No sweet for me... why like this :(
