    I Miss It

    I used to do ballet but now I don't have time for it. I miss it! I'm getting so out of shape. Ballet is a great exercise and I love how you feel like you've worked every muscle.

    My Ballet Teacher Confuses Me?!?

    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 :)

    What Is Ballet, To The Pro?

    What is dance? A way to make a story or artwork conceived, as a rule, by another, shine better than it ever has. Who should play this or that part? The right choices make the show! Ballet is a show where we love even the villains, because they can fly!

    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...

    Ballet

    Ballet is my life. When I was four and five, I took ballet, but didn't like it and quit. Now I hate myself for it. I restarted this year, and now ballet is my life. When I'm not in class, I'm practicing or doing it around the house. I'm often standing on my tiptoes without...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Ballet Is Beautiful

    I've been taking dance for almost three years and ballet for a little over a year. While I'm not the most experienced dancer at my studio, I'm making strides and I'll be eligible for pointe soon. My studio is wonderful because they know just how far to push each individual...

    Why The Younger Dancer Needs Mirrors More

    Probably no adult can say when it happened, that he found himself alive in his head instead of in the present, so that his eyes became more like a camera than like animal eyes, but logic must tell him he was not always someone in his head. At one point he didn't have two words...
