Ballet Classes



Thanks for the feedback! I think I will look into the whole librarian thing. Your responses filled me with confidence :)

Lately I've been thinking about taking a dance class. I really want to do more physical activities but not just the usual running and other things. And I thought ballet would be lovely. I took it as a child but didn't like it then, I don't know what I was thinking. I also did a bit of beginner ballet in my dance class subject at school. It's always been a fascinating style to me and I would love to do it for fun.

I've loved ballet and ballet related things for a long time. My mum and I used to watch a ballet performance each year...but we haven't for awhile so I must start this up with her again. I love ballet shoes, tutu skirts and other ballet inspired fashion. I just think it's so beautiful.

I want to share some lovely ballet images. I love pointe shoes and I have a pair that Laura gave me. They are packed away for the moment until I know where I will display them.

There is something so dreamy and fantasy like about ballet and it never fails to make me catch my breath. The costumes, the dancers looking as light as air, the pointe shoes and when it's all put together. Mesmerising!

I've been looking at this ballet studio called 2ballerinas. I have a friend who is already interested in doing the classes with me. And there is another studio I'm looking into. I'm quite excited about it and I think I will do it! This is my year for not holding back on the things I've wanted to do for years :) My year to step out of my comfort zone!

Next time I should write my little list of goals. Have a wonderful weekend everyone! I'm on the Sunshine Coast again for my future sis in law's bridal shower. And Alice in Wonderland thrown in there too!

Awesome! You should do it, especially with a friend. Doing something with a friend is always more fun, especially if you learn something new :D

Ballerinas are amazing. They're graceful and fairy-like. Something that you're into, I'm sure :)

Al said...

Ballet images are just so lovely. They are instant smile makers. There is such mystery behind the stories.

Goodluck on your ballet journey! fingers crossed you film your practices and post it up herE?? yes? :)

I've always wanted to do ballet since I was little! Unfortunately my parents didn't let me 'cos at that time I had a feet-condition. I had a go at gymnastics in the end, but it didn't work out cos classes were too far away from where I lived.

I'm so happy that you're going out and doing all those wonderful things you've always wanted to achieve! My very best to you, darling Gracie. <3

ooo... I've always loved anything ballet related, like you've said there's something so romantic and dreamy about it.

that'll be cool for you to retake ballet class, you have the basic so it won't be that hard no? ;D

Awww I love ballet shoes! I don't know much abt ballet, except I used to read the Full house books in childhood, and Michelle (the youngest sister) used to take ballet classes-so that's how close it gets for me. Haha. But you should definitely go for whatever makes you happy.
Also, thanks so much for leaving such insightful, supportive comments on my blog. I owe you way to much, because you have made me feel at calm with your words.
thanks a dozen!

Love those studded caps! And I think a ballet class sounds like SO much fun. Maybe you could even wear a tutu. I'm always looking for an excuse to wear a tutu!

Fee-AMore said...

How wonderful. You should! Heh I don't think i have any dancing genes in me but i love ballet flats!

Bunnie said...

Awww, you're so suite. hahaha :) Oops!

paula said...

I used to love doing ballet! It's been many many years though. this morning I was doing a pilates video and realized I have lost so much of it, ouch.

ClaireLines said...

I am so excited about this! I checked out the studio, looks wonderful. I read a book called Ballet Shoes when I was younger, and ever since then I've wanted to do ballet! I didn't even know there were adult classes (except for at uni). Can't wait to look into it further!! xxx

Elaine Reyes said...

i love those photos --- and there's something about ballet shoes that always makes me think of a whimsical fairy tale --- not sure why!

i'm glad you're thinking of taking up something just to get moving --- i need to do it too! for now, i'll start by cleaning the house while both hubby and baby are asleep!


keep us updated if you do take those classes!

Cassie said...

Gracie I can just imagine you doing ballet beautifully. Great idea to push yourself and something that gives you such enjoyment can only be a fantastic thing.
Stunning images you have chosen too.

Sara said...

oh what I'd give to be in a tutu

kimberlie said...

oh, that looks like fun! My partner and i took Swing dance clases last year (in the Valley)and they were great.

AnastasiaC said...

ballet dance keeps your body supple and muscles lean - i do Jazzercise and its a little like aerobics but lots of stretched movements - i love it!!!

trishie said...

Gorgeous images! I did ballet when i was young, but stopped cos i was never any good at it!
