    My Ballet Teacher Confuses Me?!?

    when your ballet teacher says "everyones getting on pointe this thursday" to the whole class , do they want you to already have pointe shoes for that day, or do they mean their going to examine your feet for pointe? I haven't been examined for pointe yet, but my teacher has the...

    When i was young, i don't really like ballet.

    Not like other "typical" girls who loves ballet. Now, in school we need to choose some extracurricular activities. Then my aunt forced me to take ballet lessons. So... I took ballet for 6 years. My teacher said i would've took advance class but it doesn't fit my "age". And now i...

    I am or rather was a male ballet dancer,

    because I had an injury which kicked me out of "the business" for 2 years and I am just taking myself back to it ;) But I think that being a ballet dancer is a state of mind and behaviour so even when you can't dance anymore you will still be a ballet dancer.

    I Love Dance

    I'm 15 and I love dance.. I dance ballet since I was 3, but 4 years ago, I thought that all my friends of ballet were too thin {me too but I didn't see it} so I didn't eat, but one of my partners "teach" me the "art" of bulimic. Now I know that I couldn't do that. When I dance...

    I've been a dancer since I was 5 years old.

    I never quit. Ballet is a part of my life and I don't know how to live without it. But I don't love it so much to make a profession out of it, I'm going to college for Musical Theater in the fall. But I just feel like I'm going to miss ballet terribly because I don't know life...

    Lost

    When I' dance, everything disapears.  No heartaches exist, family problems are lost in my foot steps.  Ballet is what gets me through the day, the only positive thing in my life.

    I just joined this site a week ago

    and of course, saw the posts (mostly girls) infatuation and passion for their dance. I have added in what positive comments I can as I can seriously relate to their enthusiasm and passion. They have a gift that very few get to enjoy and pursue. Being a passionate ballet...

    Now

    I´ll be 30 this year and after 26 years of ballet dancing it hurts more often. My body is strong but it can´t take the "abuse" ballet sometimes is. I dance proffesionally and pain and injuries is an unavoidable part of that, but I also want to be kind to myself so...

    What A Nightmare

    While dying in Romeo's arms as Juliet you could hear a pin drop in the theatre. Then an ambulance drive by sirens blaring;clearly heard by the theatre and Romeo and I started to laugh and couldn't stop. We sort of got in trouble.

    It Makes Me Proud

    To be able to say, "This is what I do." Ballet is my thing. It makes me so happy, no matter how hard it hurts. I know I will be able to take my knowledge of dancing with me wherever I go. When I am dancing, I feel comfortable within myself. It takes all of the...

    I did ballet for ten years.

    I loved my friends and sense of belonging to a group. Doing shows was nerve wracking but good fun, especially after the last night and we could party. Most of all I loved the grace and elegance of ballet.
