Suri Cruise takes her daily dance class then spends the afternoon knocking down pins with Katie Holmes

Pink is the colour: Suri kept her pumps on to go home, meanwhile, Katie was back in THOSE boots
You can't say that Suri Cruise is an idle child, despite all her privilege.

Maybe it's down to her mother, Katie, 33, who takes the little one to New York's Chelsea Piers on an almost daily basis so she can attend dance classes.

And today, the six-year-old rolled up to her ballet instruction and then went ten pin bowling with her mother.

Wearing a cute dance outfit, the youngster had a look of concentration on her face throughout her visit that suggests she means business when it comes to doing thing's right.

It's that same look of intensity so often seen on her father, Tom Cruise's face.

The 50-year-old actor hasn't seen his daughter, who is enrolled in a Catholic school in Manhattan, for ten weeks.

The actor's long-term lawyer and close friend Bert Fields told MailOnline that Cruise was very much 'missing' his little girl - and planned to see her as soon as possible.

He stressed: 'Tom is a loving, caring father.  Suri is a vital part of his life and always will be.'

Mr Fields added: 'Of course he’ll be seeing her soon.  He’s in England finishing one picture and preparing another.'

He said the star was 'absolutely' looking forward to being reunited with his daughter, insisting: 'He misses her.'

The father and daughter have been speaking 'once or twice' a day, according to Mr Fields, who said that his client was extremely proud that Suri had entered the first grade.

'Tom is a loving, caring father...  Suri is a vital part of his life and always will be. Of course he’ll be seeing her soon.'

Suri had a look of intensity on her face as she went about her afternoon of activity
The Mission Impossible star last saw Suri when he took her away to Disney World in Florida at the end of July - and the pair were pictured frolicking in the waves at the Typhoon Lagoon at the family resort.

Since his split from his Katie Holmes at the end of June, Cruise has been holed up in the UK, where he has been filming his new thriller All You Need Is Kill, while his ex-wife - who has sole custody of their daughter - has started a new life in New York.

Cruise has hardly been quiet though, last Saturday he was seen out at top London restaurant Scott's.

He joined Oscar-nominated director Ridley Scott at the popular celeb haunt for a birthday dinner for chart-topping singer Usher – who proceeded to tweet a picture of the trio.

Suri looks like both her parents but her intensity mirrors her famous father: who she hasn't seen in over ten weeks

His appearance came just weeks after he partied the night away to celebrate actor Matt Damon’s 42nd birthday at notorious Soho club The Box, where it was reported that he was spanked with a paddle by a drag queen.

He has also been spotted at posh London nightspot Annabel's.

Since she last saw her father, Suri started the first grade on September 11 at Manhattan’s newest private School, Avenues.

And a source said: 'Tom is a multi-millionaire, New York is just a six-and-a-half-hour flight from London, so quite why he couldn't have jumped on a private jet for a weekend is anyone's guess.'

The mother and daughter caught a cab home, like true Manhattanites
Cruise was filming Oblivion in Iceland when Miss Holmes blindsided him by filed for divorce.

Mr Fields had previously said the fact the Cruise and Miss Holmes agreed to a divorce settlement in just 11 days was in Suri's best interests.

The divorce was finalised in August by a New York judge, marking a particularly speedy end to the five-year marriage.

Miss Holmes is now rehearsing for her next stint on Broadway in comedy Dead Accounts.
