Here it is, the last day of 2011 and I suppose it would be appropriate to blog about New Years resolutions or recap the year and such but if you want to know the truth, I’ve had one heck of a busy week and I’m too exhausted to give good thought to all these things. Of course, I’m also not the recap sort of person because I like to recap as I go along and I’m not a resolution person because I like to plan and then work it and adjust as necessary. I consider both to be part of life not a singular exercise done once a year.
So let me simply wish you a very, very Happy New Year! one that is filled with challenges, risks, discovery, and most of all joy! And as we go into this new year from a year of occupying, dissention, and adversity, I’d like to leave you with a thought if I might and here it is – occasionally, one person can stop a mob. I’d love to see each of us be one incredible, beautiful, special, unique person, just one, singular in loveliness and purity of self because I love to hear you speak in your voice, give from your heart, and feel the light of your dance from your spirit when you so generously share it with me and with others!
Let me also pass on a gift that was shared with me – because isn’t that how it’s supposed to work! 😀 My wonderful ballet teacher recorded fantastic ballet class music and gave us a CD for Christmas and in the spirit of generosity that is typical for him, he has made it available as a free download, so here you go! enjoy!
You managed to put into words how I feel about the dance blog community. Thank you. And the one track I’ve listened to so far is awesome, so thanks for that, too! Happy 2012!
Thanks, Rori! Cheers for a fantastic 2012!
I really enjoy going from the quick tendu to the super fast tendu tracks! whew, super fast is no joke 😀
Thank you and thank your teacher for the great ballet music!
Have a great 2012!
Thanks, Chris! Have a great 2012!
Thanks for the great tip on the ballet music…I downloaded and used it for my between-the-holidays practice at home (so I don’t die during the first class of 2012!). 🙂
The “Fondu and Ronde de Jambe” link is broken though (goes to to a page on the pointe shoe), thus spoiling my perfect set!
Hey, thanks for the headsup on the music download. I let me teacher know and he fixed it so back to ballet practice! 😀
Thank you for your beautiful thoughts for 2012. Thank you also for sharing the ballet class music! It will make practicing at home much easier.
Hope you enjoy practicing to the music!

Thanks, Bead109…you are awesome and so is your teacher. Please pass on my big thanks 🙂 The music really is wonderful…a modern sound but still very balletic and inspirational…love it! I walk around the city doing errands with ballet music playing on my iPod quite often and your playlist is on there right now!
That’s terrific! I’m so happy that you are enjoying the music. I passed your message onto my teacher and he’s really happy that you are listening and loving it too 😀
Belated happy new year and thank you for passing along the music! I am listening (and plié-ing) right now! 🙂
Happy New Year to you too, Jeff! I’m glad that you are enjoying the music! I love it, its beautiful but also easy to count to 🙂
