What ballet made me believe

Ballet is magic.

It’s pretty amazing – watching ballet, learning ballet, just being around ballet in any way.

Magic.

Ballet changed my outlook, opened my eyes, made me believe.

Ballet made me believe in the power of art.

Ballet made me believe that every one can and should dance.

Ballet made me believe that life is a dance.

Ballet made me believe that pain is worth it.

Ballet made me believe that pain is temporary.

Ballet made me believe that dance transforms.

Ballet made me believe that dance inspires.

Ballet made me believe that sweat is awesome!

Ballet made me believe in music.

Ballet made me believe that we can all strive for one amazing moment.

Ballet made me believe that dance is joy made visible.

Ballet made me believe that dance tells the truth.

Ballet made me believe that I can do anything as long as I have the will and I’m ready to work really really hard for it.

How about you? Has ballet or any kind of dance made you a believer? What has dance made you believe?

  1. “Ballet made me believe in music.” Yes, I think, that is true for me, too.

    And, more important: Dance made me believe in friendship and happiness.
    I went back to dance school in bad times. I was lonely, depressed, stressed and not really healthy . I don’t even remember where and how I found the courage to try again. But literally step by step, my strength (and my smile) came back. I made new friends, I saw new places. There were some bad experiences, too, but if I look back at the last 8 or 9 years, I see mostly happiness.

  2. Oh my gosh, yes!! Dance lead me to new places and new people, definitely! Thank you for sharing 💕

    I’m a really shy person, extremely introverted. Dance helped me to be able to interact with people in a much more healthy way. I’ve by no means become extroverted but I do enjoy friendships in a way that I was never capable of pre-ballet.

  3. Studying ballet later in life has, and is not just dream fulfillment. It is better than anything I ever imagined, and has also helped me deal with grief of loss.

    • Thanks for reading and commenting, Suzanne. Ballet class has helped me deal with life in many ways – the happy, the sad, the stressful – it’s pretty amazing in that way.🙂
