Word of the Week

Le ballerine - ballet pumps

Even though we've had some rain this week it's starting to warm up, which means I can start wearing my ballerine again! The word ballerine is also the feminine form of the word 'dancers'; a male dancer is a ballerino and a female dancer is a ballerina. These can be any kind of dancers, not just ballet dancers. And what's the verb for what do ballerini do? Ballare! They dance! And I certainly love to ballare in my ballerine!
