Guest fastfeets Posted September 19, 2002 Report Share Posted September 19, 2002 Hi. I'm new to this site....wandered in from a mention of this place on another ballet site. I'm really glad, too. This looks like a great group! The Richmond Intensive looked like it was a lot of fun. A little about me, if you'd like to know. I'm 33, danced a lot as a teen, but took a looong break and went back to ballet early this year. I've recently moved from San Fran (not my original home...) to Nashville (not home either....), and am in the process of TRYING to find a studio. (might have found one....finally....and after great frustration....but we shall see). So, I haven't been in a class since June, sadly...and I'm really dying to get back in there. Going mad, I am, I swear it! I'm not very skinny (anymore...haha), I'm not very good (probably never truly was, but i thought once i was pretty good...), but I do love it. Dancing makes me so happy sometimes, and so sad sometimes.....but it does bring something out in me that I crave all the same. My mother died suddenly and unexpectedly early this year, about 3 weeks before I started classes again, and 2 weeks to the day before I was honored with running the Olympic Torch through part of Oakland...and I have a mission. I want to honor her with a dance sometime in the next few years. I've got one of two songs I'd like to choreograph (or rather have done...I am terrible at choreography...i mean it...realllyyyyyyy reallllly bad...NEVER let me try it....trust me *laughs*), and once I've decided on which of the two, I'd very much like to spend some time perfecting it, and perform at least one last time, for her...so she can see me dance again. I know, it's kinda sappy and dippy....but it's become a goal, and it's pushing me when I dont want to go further sometimes, so I'm feeding it well. *grin* Anyway, I suppose this intro rambled...but I've had a wretched day, and thought I might get it looking up a bit and say hello to y'all instead of wallowing in self pity *peeks to see if it's working* so...uh...hi!
