Are you interested, or perhaps have all ready started ballet? It's hard, yes, but its also lots of fun!! Here's some little snips of my 'Ballet Life'!
|Lady Bug Costume|
Me right before I turned 13, in fancy 'lady' dress
|My friend and I, she's doing my hair before I go onstage|
|Elena and I|
|Me doing my mysterious 'Desperate Mortal' move|
|All of us 'Desperate Mortals!' That's what we were!|
|Me and my friend. She's in her Rain costume. I also was a Rain.|
|Me with a star of the show|
|Me and my friend Brianna|
These are some pictures of me, my friends and family when I was in the performance Rigoletto two summers ago, 2010.
I am in one huge ballet performance every other summer.
~Ballet is a ton of fun, though I won't lie and say its easy. Over a year ago, I started Pointe, (it's where you see the professional dancers dancing on these special shoes), and Pointe is difficult, but very much worth it.
If your considering beginning Ballet, let me tell you now that it would be best to join a Christian Ballet group that teaches you to honor God with your body; that's what I am in currently.
When you start in Pointe, you going to want to set aside at least $95 or so for the shoes, lamb's wool toepads, and wool stuffing. It sounds pricy, but after your first pair, the cost should be more around $75, since you would already have the toepads and stuffing.
The Ladybug Costume above, is supposed to be a 'lovely lady' dress. Pretty, isn't it? I'm going to wear one of them in the ballet show I'm in. The other picture is me right before I turned 13. My ballet teacher wants us to look like pretty ladies.
Anyway, if you want to be in ballet, make sure that you don't just get in thinking its easy.
But its always worth it!!!
