It's been a while since I last mentioned ballet. The class that was being offered at the gym is now on hiatus. Until possibly September.
It's like they don't even have a conscience. To get people all amped up on something and then take it away. That only creates problems.
I've been all destitute and everything without it. In the meantime, I've done a little research. (You know, I googled some stuff.)
I started by looking up "how to improve balance". Because like I've said before, I wobble. Stop laughing. It's very pretty. I found a good article though, and learned some stuff. The more I read about ballet, the more my confidence grew. Seems that even if you weren't "born a natural", you could still develop greatness. I like that. It lifts my heart again.
Also. Did you know that there is information available to all the people about this: How to Act Like a Ballet Dancer? That particular article was possibly the most insightful.
Here are the highlights. For me anyway.
And I quote:
This article should, maybe, be called:"How to Seem Like A Ballet Dancer".

(Yes, I know that's not grammatically correct.) I left it in its original form so as not to take away from the author's um, realness.]]
- Wear your hair in a bun or ponytail all lot.

- Try to develop a nice, tinkling laugh.
- Maybe buy some nice-smelling perfume.
- Give people clear, interesting gazes.
- Act more bewildered/confused/upset/happy about something. Well, just act more emotional in general.
- Get a cat.
- Grow flowers.
A nice, tinkling laugh? (I have more of a guffaw/cackle. It's loud and low-class.)
(Learned it in Finishing School.)
Clear, interesting gazes? Oh. You mean like this?
Wow. Ballet is painful to learn.
