Poise

I said I would blog more.

So here I go.

Lately, I've been thinking about taking ballet classes again.



When I was little, I took ballet classes because that's what little girls do. Also, my sister did it, which made it something I should DEFINITELY do.

I was okay. I wasn't great, but I tried hard and I was okay. I was much better at jazz and modern dancing, but still not great. I think, back then, I liked the idea of being "a dancer" than really actually being one. Took a lot of courage on my part to accept that and say "no thanks" to dance lessons after 9th grade....

Anyway.

Lately, I've seen a lot of ballet dancers around. You can just spot them miles away..

Backs straight
Chins up
Shoulders back
Stomach in
Feet turned out

Ballerinas are beautiful. Just gorgeous, really. They reek of grace, poise, and confidence. And I know they may not all feel confident - but they certainly look it. And I love that.

And I want to be a ballerina, too.
