Beckham ballerina! Victoria Beckham took to Instagram to share some sweet photos of her little girl Harper following in her footsteps – literally. It all began when the 43-year-old shared a picture of 5-year-old Harper taking her old ballet slippers for a spin. The young Beckham can be seen with her feet in a perfect “third position” as she wears the well-worn pink satin shoes. Along with a series of heart emojis, her proud mom captioned the adorable snap: “Playing with my mummy's old ballet shoes x Thank you nana!! Kisses from Harper.”

Victoria’s followers loved the personal picture taken by her mother, with one commenting: “Aw I love this I can't wait for my little girl to be old enough for ballet.” One avid ballet follower said: “Nice third position Harper, lovely turn out,” and another wrote, “She's a natural!!” One fan identified with the fun dress up session, saying: “Aaah my nieces do the same thing with mine! X”. There was also a comment from Victoria’s old dance school, which read: “Ahhh a passion that has never faded and now passed on to beautiful Harper. Sending all our love from Jason Theatre School.”

The latest Instagram pic actually shows Harper in full ballerina attire, standing in “first position.” She wears a red leotard and tweed hat, as she looks off in what appears to be a dance studio. Last month HELLO! confirmed the news that Harper is attending the highly-regarded Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts. She has been going to classes at the top school in London’s Barbican for over a year, with Victoria often taking her. Harper is also enrolled in ballet lessons at the English National Ballet.
Harper certainly seems to have gotten her mom Victoria's passion for the arts. From age eight, Victoria attended the Jason Theatre School in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, between 1982 and 1991, before gaining a scholarship to Laine Theatre Arts in Surrey. The mom-of-four trained in dance before finding worldwide success in pop group the Spice Girls.
