    I love dancing with all my heart

    and am moving into a more lyrical approach. I was just offered a scholarship to a studio not to far from me. I have been taking classes for 11 years and joined the competition team when I was eight years old and have been dancing in the senior division ever since.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 hate when people say dance

    or ballet isn't a sport, because they have no idea the work and pressure we are put under, but they are kind of right, dance is a lot more than just a sport 😊

    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.

    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...
