I just posted a super difficult blog post that I’ve been trying to write for a few months. I also thought about waiting until the summer to post it, but feel that now is the best time. The details are there, but essentially this is my last year teaching. I also won’t be active on this account anymore. It’ll remain live, as will my blog, but I won’t be checking in on it. This has been an extremely difficult decision to have to come to, but it’s one I can’t avoid anymore. If you’d like to keep up with me, please feel free to follow my personal account @emileeayers or my poetry account @forthestranger (or my “nerd” account if you’re into that, @thenerdjacket ) I love y’all so much and am super grateful for the friends I’ve made over the years through ballet. Super proud of y’all and everything you’re accomplishing every day. (Thanks to Mrs Gigi for this picture from nutcracker this year. It’s super special to me.)
I’ll have a proper post after the trip when I can blog. I’m the meantime, please enjoy this photo of @ballerinakay that I am properly obsessed with. ❤️
Two years ago today, I met @allie_on_pointe in person! In NINE DAYS we’re going to London together! I truly cherish the friends being in the dance world as an adult has given me. ❤️
Caught the train, heading back to hogwarts. See you witches (and wizards) there!
The dance season started up this week! My classes started today, and I wrote a blog post about it. Now I’m gonna go sleep. Link in bio
I was at a Harry Potter convention this weekend with my best friend and had an unexpected ballet encounter. I wrote about it if that’s your sort of thing. Link in the bio. 💛🖤

Summer classes

Okay, so this isn’t really anything I’m learning, but it is something I’m really excited about!
Jilissa told us today what to expect for the summer classes.
Usually we’ll start a little earlier or go a little longer or something that changes it a little bit.

Today she told us we would start at 5:15 instead of 6.
That Beginner/Intermediate will be from 5:15-6:15
Then we’ll have a pointe class from 6:15-6:45
Then we’ll have advanced from 6:45-8

She then told us,
“I highly recommend you stay for the pointe class. Even if you’re not on pointe yet, but you’re working towards it. It’s going to be a lot of releve’s and strengthening exercises. It’s going to be really good. And every single one of you in here can stay for the advanced class. I want every single one of you in the advanced class.”
wait, all of us? We can all stay?
I can stay for advanced?!

She then went on to tell us that it’s going to be a lot of hard work and really going for it this summer. Summer’s tend to be a little more intense and really good for challenging and bettering you.
I’m really excited. My goal is to get on pointe by fall, but I know if that doesn’t happen, then it’ll be okay. I don’t want to get on earlier than what I’m ready for. But she was making a lot of eye contact with me, so I know she knows I want this. And the fact that she’s changing the classes to do these things that are going to help me so much, I’m PUMPED.

I’m really looking forward to summer 🙂
