Dance

I dance ballet and some latin dance. These excerpts are about the struggle of finding the "balance" of being an adult and having a strenous full time (and expensive) hobby.

my attitude about executing an attitude

If I have to petite allegro one more second….I simply cannot bear it. My teacher spends a good 45 minutes in class on it. (jete, assemble, glissade) I have a look in my eye as if I detest it, well frankly, because I do. My grande attitude (or any attitude for that matter) is quite unsightly. I have no idea why this is so challenging unless it’s due to my hips. We then worked on center splits against the wall, also something my anatomy (hips) are not built for. I was the only one sticking way out like a splinter.

This girl who is too new to be on pointe WILL NOT stop talking to me the entire class. I just don’t acknowledge her. Why must we talk at all in ballet?
