Jennifer Garner remains a ballerina at heart.

Garner, 51, shared two adorable throwback photos to her Instagram Story on Thursday, while promoting her friend Isabella Boylston's upcoming performance of Cinderella in Connecticut.

"Here is a link to tickets to watch my beautiful prima @isabellaboylston dance Cinderella this Friday in Waterbury, CT..." Garner wrote over a video advertising the show. She also shared a black-and-white photo of herself striking a ballet pose.

"OR you can take a Time Machine back 34 years and watch me dance Cinderella with my little baby arabesque," she added over the first photo.

Garner is known for sharing her love for dance and throwback photos from her youth on Instagram. Last Wednesday, the 13 Going on 30  star posted three photos of herself in her junior high school marching band uniform. One picture from that carousel shows her playing the saxophone along with her school's band, while two other photos show her posing with the brass instrument in her full band getup.

"Sally the Sexy Saxophone, she was a boss. 🎷," she wrote in a caption to that post.

Back in November, Garner made a trip to the New York City Ballet and shared humorous videos of herself trying to keep up with the ballet's principal dancer Unity Phelan. In the clip she posted, Garner could be seen struggling to hold her leg on top of a barre while professional ballerina Phelan demonstrated the effort with ease.

“She’s still got it, folks! 👵🏻😂 #TutuTuesday (we ♥️ @unityphelan and @nycballet)," she wrote in a caption to that video at the time.

Garner also took a chance to dance with the Radio City Rockettes in December after her longtime friend Reese Witherspoon implored her to visit Radio City in New York City.

"My friend Reese sent me a DM yesterday. Little did she know I happened to be in New York, and for our whole friendship, I pretty much do anything she says," she said in a video she shared to Instagram, with the video cutting to Garner performing with a group of dancers from the famous N.Y.C.-based dance company.
