ballet wednesday...



Tonight was officially my last class of the Spring ballet session. The Summer session is by a different teacher and it starts way too early for me to make it from work unfortunately, so hopefully I remember all the steps once class starts back up again in the Fall! Tonight we basically brought everything together that we've learned over the past while and created a little "dance" (if you can call it that)... jumps, arabesques, pas-de-bourree and pirouettes all rolled into one. It was definitely a lot of fun!

Sounds like so much fun and a little bittersweet! I would love to take ballet classes but never have. In your opinion do you think it matters how old you are when you start? Not that I'm planning on becoming the next star on Swan Lake or anything. But I just think it would so much fun! {love the pictures btw}! xoxo

imagine.create.play - oh no! I don't think it matters at all. my adult class has women from age 20 to 40, but we're all beginners, so everyone's at the same level! lol... you should totally try it out :)

Wow, I just love these photos of Audrey. She is a stunning woman.

How long have you been doing ballet, Daniella?

I was so in love with the ballet when I was a little girl. I would try and stand on my tip toes! I am in my fifties now but I would love to take a ballet class just for fun. How do you find a class like that?

Daniella said...

Pink Ronnie - Not too long! Well, I took ballet when I was younger up until pointe work, so I know a little bit of the background stuff, but I just started this adult class up again in the Winter. It's been great!

Kassel & Kate - Oooh that's exciting! You're much more of a professional than me! lol. Good luck with the ballet!

Jan's Camera - It's a really fun class! It's definitely a workout, more than you would think, but I love it. It's nice to do something that requires a little discipline like that too, just to work on perfecting things, hahaha. My teacher doesn't expect us to anywhere near perfect though! So that makes it more casual and fun.

Congratulations on the semester end! I'm certain you'll be twirling like Audrey again in no time at all. xo Lola
