Teaching kids

Today was another day teaching ballet. I taught kids with the average age of 6. Little tots as they are, you face the challenge of getting their attention and getting them to follow your instruction. This day was no different from the usual, so I told them about 3 animals I don't like to have in my class. First are the cheetahs who run around a lot. Next are the monkeys who hang on to the barres. Last the sloths who want to lie or sit down not doing anything. I then asked them if they are anyone of the 3 or if they are humans. This got their attention. I say to myself, that I am NOT a zookeeper and that they can not be what causes hair loss!
