I Love Ballet

Ballet is a passion, a release, a feeling, an experience. 684 People

    been doing it since I was around 3.

    I've loved it so much, and I've been on pointe for three or four years or now. it's painful, it's brutal, it's difficult, but it's still my absolute favourite thing. performing is my favourite part, it's the most amazing feeling. I'm in the final stages of completing the entire...

    It is such a beautiful dance form,

    elegant and classy. I was on the dance team in high school, among the other forms of dance we competed with, ballet was my absolute favorite. I need to buy some new flats, but that's not too bad of a purchase.

    I've Only Been In Ballet For 6 Months

    But, I'm already starting to get good. My teacher says I have strong enough ankles that I can go on pointe whenever I feel ready. She also has helped me a lot with my technique which has made me much more confident. So, last week I was asked to teach a short ballet dance to two 5...

    I Really Wanted Do Do Ballet..

    When I was a kid, I really, really wanted to take ballet classes. My younger sister took them, and when we went to pick her up and the lesson wasn't over yet, I'd always do what they were doing, at the side of the room. I so badly wanted to have classes too, I begged my...

    Does anyone know Nijinsky?

    ?? if you don't go forth and search him! I saw a ballet about his life story truly moving and beautiful, the way they conveyed his gradual insanity! jaw dropping! National Ballet of Canada btw just in case you were wondering :)

    I love all forms of art, and preformance art is amazing.  The dedication and skill that it takes to preform a ballet is commendable.  I love to watch people dance, it's so expressive and I think ballet is one of the most expressive.

    Ballet Is My Life

    I love ballet. Although I'm quite new at it (2 years now), it is my passion. I dance tap, jazz, lyrical, modern and musical theater too, but something about ballet attracts me. I dance more ballet than any other class. I wish everyone else could experience a passion like this.

    Why not? As I do my annual listen to Semyon

    Bychkov conducting the Berliner Philharmoniker in Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker;" I muse again about why ballet is not done nude. No other activity that I can think of, except the sports of gymnastics, diving, and figure skating, are so focused on the body as ballet. If if is...

    ballet. I loved it when I was younger. I went ahead of myself & did some stretches & bar work a few weeks ago. Afterwards, in the mid-night hour, my body,legs, & feet were paralyzed with pain. Stupid, stupid move. While doing the exercises I was happy & told myself, it's a...

    I love ballet. It's so beautiful.

    The music. The choreography. It frees my mind. It lets me relax. It is just perfect. I started ballet when I was about 5 and fell in love. In 5th grade I got sick, but still danced, but in 6th I was not allowed to a lot and only went one time a week, which broke my heart </3...

    My Ballet Story

    I started ballet when I was three and fell in love. From then I was addicted. I took ballet at the Joffrey ballet in NYC until I was 17 and was offered an apprenticeship at the Boston ballet. I had the privilege of working with them and got a few small parts in various ballets...

    I'm absolutely mad about ballet.

    I'm desperate to be a professional ballerina but am starting to have to live with the reality that it may not be possible. But I still love dancing.

    Beautiful Ballet

    I started ballet when I was 5, I enjoyed it so much. When I was 7 I decided to quit, I dont know why but I did. Even though I quit dance has always been close to my heart. When I started to get bullied ballet was the only thing that seized the pain, I felt so beautiful and free...

    I'm So Bad At It. But It's Great!

    I took a ballet class after school in the first grade, and never revisited it -- despite watching many ballet performances -- until this year.  Class once a week. It's great, because I hardly exercise otherwise, but it's so hard!  It doesn't help that I'm both horribly...

    Well I don't love it.

    I love the technique it has given me for contemporary dance. I completely quit when I was 13 and I'm now 17 and I have to go back for technique lessons. This scares me as ballet is very strict and I moved away from it for that reason because I don't like to be conformed through...

    But my legs and glutes are paying

    for it. I wonder how I did this when I was younger. Right now, I would kill for a full body massage. Especially my feet, calves, thighs, glutes, & lower back. Basically, everything below my waist! lol! Umm, the hands of a man soothing the soreness.
