Ballet: My First True Love

20 04 2010

I’ve been dancing with Dupont for a little while doing the Adult Ballet classes as a way to break myself back into Ballet. But it got to the point where I was being used as a demonstration tool and not being pushed creatively, so I decided to take it up a notch and joined the Advanced 1 class.

It was amazing.

The teacher is fantastic, she will go through moves once and then go “Off you go” and then leaves us to work out the left foot by ourselves and even though I got a lot of it wrong I still had a fantastic time. I asked her if she thought that I was still at the right level to be in the class and she said I definitely was. To be told by quite a traditional strict teacher that I am still at a high level technically made me feel amazing, especially as I’ve just had a year off proper ballet. I spent the pole dancing class I attended afterwards bouncing around like a child – haven’t felt like that in ages it was fantastic! Can’t wait for next week…..
