My name is Joyce and I am eight years old. I am studying primary three. My family members are Mum, Dad, my elder sister Serena and my puppy Cookie. My hobbies are dancing, reading story books and drawing, my favourite is dancing Ballet because I feel cheerful when I dance.
I have Ballet classes every Tuesday and Saturday. Mum brings me there and she waves goodbye to me with a pleasant smile before she leaves. My teacher, Miss Bianna, is very nice. She always helps me in tidying up my hair. Angelina, my best friend, learns ballet with me too!
Miss Bianna teaches us a lot of Ballet skills. Last Tuesday, she taught us how to jump up with turn around. “Yeah! I can do it!” shouted Angelina joyfully. I kept trying but not successful. I was disappointed but I kept trying till the end of the class.
I went to school the next day. “Hey! Joyce, you are back! Let’s play with Jessie!” shouted Angelina.
While we were playing, Adele and Ella came to us and said, “We are going to join the Ballet competition. How about you?”
“We will join too!” Angelina smiled.
On Saturday, we practiced jumping with turn around again. Everyone did it correctly except me. I was tripped over and fell on the floor. I was very sad and feeling distressed.
While we were ready to leave, Miss Biana told us the ballet competition would be presented in pairs.
On Monday, I went to school. During recess time, Angelina and Jessie were playing with me in the playground. Adele and Ella came suddenly and said flighty, “Poor Joyce, you can’t even do the basic skills!” “Don’t be so cheeky!” Angelina shouted to them, then they ran away.
That night, I was upset because Adele and Ella’s words really hurt me. I was thinking to give up. Suddenly my sister came to me and said, “Don’t give up, carry on. I know you can do it!” I understood and replied with confidence, “Yes! I will try again!”
I practiced a lot even I was exhausted. I finally managed to jump with turn before the day of the competition. I was so happy but I kept on practicing. Miss Bianna phoned and told me that Adele and I would be paired up for the performance.
On the day of the competition, Adele and I went to the backstage waiting for our turn. After a while the MC announced, “Welcome Joyce and Adele, please!” We went onto the stage and danced. When it was my turn to jump up with turn around, I did it nicely!
At last, Adele and I got the 1st runner-up. We were excited. My friends, Miss Bianna and my family came to congratulate us. Adele and Ella apologized for what they had said before. “It is Okay!” I said. “Let’s be good friends?” Adele asked. We all nodded our heads.1 / 11
