first ballet class ever =)


Recommended Posts

I had my first ballet class ever today (im 18) Im a really shy person so when we all had to introduce ourselves i was super nervous haha but other than that we just went over the basic postitions today for the arms and legs. I think im going to really really enjoy this and hopefully ill be a little more comfortable soon. Im just scared cuz theres a lot of people who have taken ballet before (its a college class) and only a few who havent but i really hope I love it as much as I think I will. Im so nervous though!!! :D

I took my first ballet class a year ago at age 19, also as a college student, though not through my college. Now I'm obsessed! :clapping: It's so much fun, even starting at our ancient age. ;) Best of luck to you in your ballet endeavors!

I started ballet at 18 (about a year ago) and I also used to be a really shy person. I mean really shy, like a spent the first class just sat at the back watching eveeryone! After a year of classes I'm definitely coming out of my shell and loving every minute of it. I think the confidence comes with doing something you really love and feeling a bit proud of yourself. Don't worry about other people knowing more than you, they know you are a beginner and expect you not to know anything. Just enjoy it!


Good luck and let us know how you progress!
