Tiffany Posted October 17, 2011 Report Share Posted October 17, 2011 I hope I didn't overlook a thread already started for this topic. I am finally making my way back into ballet classes. This spring between work & school I was too busy to dance (still made it to the gym at least) but couldn't fit ballet into my schedule. This summer I started taking one class a week and now this month I'm up to two classes/week. I'm in Nutcracker and I should be thrilled that I was cast as I am out of shape and overweight (and I am happy to be dancing in it) but I'm so slow to learn the dances that I'm getting another dancer to help me. I feel so "special education". I'm in graduate school (and doing well in my classes) so I have a decent level of intelligence, but its been 4 years since I've been in Nutcracker, so maybe I just don't pick up dance as quickly as I used to? Anyway, my happy item for this month is that I am back in class twice a week and kept my pointe shoes on for all of center at class this weekend (and of course for all of rehearsal)!!
