Here's a Link for you guys: (I put it here, because I'm not sure you all check our Links thread every day)

 

Ballet a big part of local girl's life

 

If you click on the link above, you'll be taken to the whole article, but here's an excerpt:

 

 

Alysse Parrish may be the only kid in the history of local softball who executed jetés while heading toward a base.  

 

Mind you, not everyone in the stands understood that Alysse was utilizing one of ballet's sharp leaps.  

 

In fact, her coach was overheard asking, "What's she doing?"  

 

That's OK, says Alysse, 11, who quickly adds "I got a home run!"  

 

Her mom, Diane Parrish, said ballet is so much a part of Alysse's life that "she's always doing ballet moves. She'll just be talking to you, and you notice that she's doing moves." Diane said they come so naturally to her daughter that "She doesn't even realize she's doing it."

That's wonderful! It reminded me of gym class at my old school, where twice a year we all had to run a mile. I hate running and I know how bad it is for dancers, so I was always trying to skip a mile, jete a mile, gallop a mile, anything but run. My gym teacher said I couldn't and she made me run:mad:

That describes me! In gym class i'm always going some kind of enchainement or something. When we did hurdles for track and field I was one of the best because of my grand jete! Everyone was like "all you need now is to have some pretty arms and you'll look like a ballerina"
