Ballet Manila Summer Workshop by Lisa Macuja- Elizalde

A video posted by Rina Zamora �� (@rinasrainbow) on

        My daughter is 3 years old. She has never had any ballet lessons that's why there was this one time when a friend of ours out of nowhere told Rain "Can you dance the ballet, Rain?". I thought Rain wouldn't react, but she surprised me by raising her arms over her head, and then twirling! I know I showed her this twirl maybe months back and I didn't think she was paying attention at that time. That's why I was so surprised that she actually retained it in her mind! This makes me think she might enjoy learning ballet!

        It's every little girly girl's dream to dance the ballet. The cute tutus, the classy pointy toes, and most of all, the graceful body movement. I didn't get to study ballet. But even before I got pregnant, I knew that when the time comes that I would have a daughter, I want her to study ballet so she can acquire that graceful movement, even when she's not dancing.

        And this summer, looks like it's about to come true! I'm excited to sign her up for a trial classical ballet class conducted by non-other than the famous Lisa Macuja- Elizalde

The Voice of the Philippines Season 2 Winner Receives Brother 1 Million Business Package!

        When it comes to singing, I have no doubt in the talent of Filipinos. And it has been proven ever since I can remember. On the top of my head, Lea Salonga, a big name in broadway and is also the first ever Filipina Disney Princess singing voice, Arnel Pineda, the lead vocals of the international band The Journey, and a lot more other normal citizens like us who are being flown to be a guest at The Ellen Degeneres Show.

Rain's Adorable Reaction When She Sees Her New Elsa Costume

        Rain is a girly girl. She loves princesses, sparkly stuff, sometimes even tries to wear my old heels. And more than anything else, she loves dressing up, She can get a simple cloth laying around and will put it on like a skirt or a cape, or a veil.

        So one afternoon, on the same day I posted this Instagram photo of hers, I decided it was time to bring out one of her Christmas gifts from her Bito and Bita (grandparents). And my husband took a video of her adorable reaction as soon as she saw it! :')
