Plié … Relevé

I think I mentioned a few weeks back that I started taking ballet again after many, many years.  I cannot begin to tell you how happy it makes me to be doing this.  I started dancing when  I was five and danced until I was about fifteen. Its always been something I loved to do, but quit when I hit that awkward time in my adolescence. Lucky for me, having been involved in theatre for many years I was still able to take a class every now and again.  Flash forward 19 years to me a month ago, in my black leotard, black tights and pink ballet shoes, ready to take on the world of dance again.  Its wonderful and challenging all at the same time.  I'm so pleased that I'm doing it but I get frustrated with myself because I want to immediately be good again. I know I cant expect to be on top form after only a month of class but I want to be.  I'm taking it seriously and always hoping to improve. I love when my teacher tells me something positive, like I'm good at keeping my back flat or my shoulders down...its the little things.  I hope to continue on doing this as its not only good to keep busy, but its good to do something you enjoy.  Not to mention the one area of my body that Ive always hated has started to look legs!
