Romance, BFFs, bro-mances… most of us have a number of interesting and complicated relationships. And some of us have even one more, some of us have a ballet-mance. I’ve come to a place where none of this needs to make sense and I don’t really care what anyone else thinks about my chosen beloved, I love ballet. I love the way everything about ballet is good for me and makes me feel happy and positive. I love that even failures are steps to triumphs, every step, literally and figuratively. I love that ballet makes me want to be healthier and take better care of myself. I love that ballet makes me more aware of my body and my movement. I love that ballet class makes me realize that ALL music is ballet music. I love that ballet both captures me and frees me. I love that ballet class means that I can wear pink tights and cute leotard AND work and sweat like a Spartan warrior.
I love knowing that learning ballet now means that I will have ballet in me forever.
I know, I mean, I KNOW it’s IMPOSSIBLE to put your love for ballet into one sentence, or even one paragraph but just for kicks, what do you love best about ballet?
