wednesday night fun...



Back from ballet class and still absolutely loving it... We learned quite a few new positions this week, with last class being cancelled with the snow. More jumps, gallops, and rising in fifth this time (sans pointe shoes of course). Everyone's starting to get a little more chatty and comfortable too, which makes for a great class!

Our teacher recommended a book tonight (in case anyone's thinking of taking beginner ballet) called The Ballet Campanion, which includes everything from history to certain positions. I'm ordering it asap!

Hope you all had a great night...

I wish I had the courage to take a ballet class!!!

I still think it's fabulous that you're taking a ballet class! I took ballet in my youth, and briefly in HS, and I am just not graceful enough! :) Beautiful images, all the same.

Your posts about ballet are beautiful! I took dance for 9 years when I was a child and I wish that I had kept going.

If you're REALLY interested in ballet, you should check out the documentary, "Ballerina." It's centered around a few dancers in the Kirov Ballet in Russia and it is fascinating! If you have Netflix, it's on instant play.

Love your blog!

Bud & Leo - You totally should sign up!

Kailee - You should try it out! Beginner ballet class is great since everyone's just starting out! We started off right at the basics.

Jessica - Thank you! I'm really enjoying it... not totally graceful yet, lol...

Laura - Thanks so much for the recommendation, i'm checking out that vid asap!

Carissa - I took ballet up until pointe and then stopped. So it's pretty fun to get back into it... learning all over again!

So much fun, I would LOVE to get back into ballet. Another blogger has moved back to New Orleans where hubby and I just moved home and she is teaching a Pure Barre class here. I have already been in touch with her and am dying to get signed up! I took classes from 4 years until college and had to ultimately give it up because it became to much of a conflict....but something about the peacefulness of the music and the quite discipline brings back memories. I hope your ballet class is bringing you all sorts of peace, relaxation and happiness sweet girl! xoxo

Daniella said...

Trish - You should totally take the class! I bet it will all come back to you :)

I've wanted to take a class for so long, but I just know I would like such a fool! Im sure everyone would enjoy seeing actual snapshots of your class.

Love these photos, how great that you're doing a ballet class! I started doing one as well a couple of months ago, it's been a lot of fun. :)
