We are in a situation where we need to choose between ballet classes and swimming classes for our 4-year old girl. Problem is that we cannot afford both of them. We need to choose one.
On the other hand, she loves and asks for both. She has been having swimming lessons since the age of 6 months but she hasn't taken any ballet lessons until now (but she loves dancing and listening to ballet music while in the house and she always speaks to me about it).
Our baby is a bit of an introvert, so I guess having ballet classes with other children would help her express feelings and emotions among other people and feel more confident about it.
On the other hand, swimming is good for physical development and in some way I will feel safer when going on vacations by the sea.
I am sure that there are much more skills developed by each activity and I would happy to learn some of them so I can make a more suitable choice.
What would you suggest?
