Sitting on the floor of the studio, no matter our ages we all become little girls again, watching in awe as the beautiful prima ballerina Sarah or Milo dances across the floor in her pink satin pointe shoes, effortlessly, as if she was a feather in a wind.
In this moment I hoped she'd never stop.
One of my best decisions was to join Metropolitan Ballet Academy last Autumn…I had dreamt about learning the challenging role of a ballerina since I was little, and decided that it was time.
Dedication ripples through the studio, minds working to memorize intricate patterns, sweat dripping of girls foreheads, passion showing every time you push through a shaking foot, trying to maintain a pointed foot. Easy isn't the word that anyone could use to describe the dance of a ballerina.
The excitement of purchasing my first pair of pointe shoes is definitely similar to one of a child's! After working towards this for months, I took my first class on pointe Wednesday night, and all I can say is pointe is so tough to maintain and learn! Albeit, worth it till the end.
Have you thought about trying Adult ballet?
