Why I love ballet

The truth is that I’ve always wanted to dance ballet when I was a kid. I begged my mother to take me to ballet, but I think there was no classes arranged back then. So I pretty much forgot about it for some years. I started high school, and I really craved for beginning ballet, but was too afraid to make the thought into action. It wasn’t until I saw a notice, that a beginner ballet class was arranged in my hometown when i participated the first time. That was about five years ago.

So why do I love ballet? actually, I do like everything about it. I love the hard work, that it is not easy, I love the typical classical music, the leotards, thights and skirts, I love the french names of all the movements, I love how beautiful it is done correctly, aswell as the beauty of pointe-shoes. Its also really hard muscle work, and requires flexibility. I also love to learn and to perform. No matter if its center or barré work, it’s so much fun. I love the feeling you get when you’re in class doing just a simple plié. I love the challenges of different movements, such as pirouettes and jumps. I love that ballet is versatile.

I think ballet is something I will do for many years to come, since it’s the most pleasant hobby I’ve had in my life. To dance.

The last week of the age of 21

Litterally the last week of me being 21. I am turning 22 next week! I have a lot going on currently with the upcoming exams. I try to study as much as possible, because soon it’s over! Me and my mother are then going on a cruise to Stockholm! We have booked a promenade room at the Silja Line boat, and we’re heading of to Stockholm for a shopping day!  I’m also packing my swimsuit since there is bubblebath at the boat! I have to focus on my studies now, so I can then have a well-earned relaxation.

Another ballet class

balettbild-nuu

This foto was taken just before ballet class. I have to be honest, today I felt like I just wanted to stay in bed and watch TV, instead of going to class. Most of the time I cannot wait for each ballet class, since I love it so much!  Today was one of those days, you know, they come every now and then.. You just feel tired and unmotivated. But, still – I went to class, and it was a wonderful class we had today. I enjoyed every bit of it. We did a lot of choreo, some barre and center work. Thuesday’s classes are never easy, since it’s kind of an advanced class, and our teacher really challenges us. Of all the four times I go to class, this is without a doubt the hardest one, but I really really like this class.

Hope you all are feeling well.

“Everyday is valentines day”

So valentines day was and went.

We celebrate valentines day for rembembering the loved ones. We celebrate our boyfriend, girlfriend, aswell as just pure friendship. We can remember our parents, and even our dog.  Still, we have to remember this is not something we have to do just on valentines day. You can remember anyone at anytime, and make that persons day. Wether you tell that person how much they mean to you, or tell them something kind or perhaps you surprise them with a little gift. It doesn’t have to be valentines day to do something nice, help someone in need, or else,

“because everyday is valentines day, in some way.”
