Ballet Talk for Dancers

New Member Spreading Positivity & Searching For Connectivity/Collaboration


Recommended Posts


Hey Internet Dance Family! So happy to be a new member on the forum! I look forward to making connections with you all and learning more about everyone's ballet experience. I was enrolled in local ballet classes as a toddler in 1993 and have not stopped loving the dance style since! My professional career has consisted of mostly theater and commercial work, however I continue to train in ballet as it feels like my home and I'm attracted to always learning something new whether that be from my own body or the instructor. 

I know these are tough times and our dance industry has been hit REALLY hard due to COVID-19... practicing ballet in my living room certainly doesn't feel the same as the studios. I have been missing that in person connection so much. I have been longing to reach for the stars when executing a tombe coupe jete without disturbing the floor below me. I knew I wasn't alone in missing connecting with dance family. 

Dancers are some of the most resilient and resourceful people out there - I know there has to be some fabulous brains in this forum who'd like to share their written work of inspiration and insights. I hope we can keep modeling great leadership by setting the example we wish to see in the world. Wishing you all a Happy Labor Day Weekend and Happy Dancing! ❤️
