New blog post is here—complete with pictures!
Last week of classes. There’s a new blog post about it. These were some of the gifts I was given. I’m dog sitting (peep Marble in the background) and was also given a chocolate mint plant in a pot painted by one of my sweet dancers that’s not pictured since it’s at my house, but seriously I have some of the sweetest kids (and moms!) I’m so grateful. ❤️
I saw Dracula this weekend, put on by my company, and wrote a blog post about it! Link is in the bio Thanks, @haeleighkathrynmae for sending me pictures since my brain was gone and I forgot to take any 😂
Not supposed to be doing these but 🤷🏼‍♀️ I can’t remember the last time I attempted a turn, but I was teaching a 6 year old I’ve been doing privates with this year and decided to just give it a whirl. My feet were making such funny sounds it alarmed our office clerk 😂 Ps. My phone is finally replaced! I’ll hopefully have a blog update soon. Stay tuned. ❤️
Great Britain friends, were coming for you!! #Repost @allie_on_pointe with @get_repost ・・・ EXCITING NEWS!! 🤩🇬🇧 • • • If you missed my story, @anothernightatthebarreofficial and I are headed to London (and parts of England) in SEPTEMBER! (Prices were much better than going in May like we had originally planned) SO, if you’re around and want to meet up or take a class or see a ballet, let us know!! We’d LOVE to meet as many of you as possible while we’re there!! Also if you have any suggestions for our trip! We don’t have a whole lot planned yet exactly and as we’ve both been there before we don’t need to do all the main touristy things. #adultballet #adultballetgang #adultballetcommunity #adultballerina
There’s a blog post for you on this fine Friday evening! Link is in the bio. Love you all, and hope you’re all well! 💕

Perfection.

Jilissa made a good point in class yesterday.

“You’re never going to be perfect.”
She’s right.
No matter how hard we try, it is physically impossible to be absolutely perfect.
She followed it up with this,
“So, if you can’t be perfect, you might as well enjoy what you’re doing. You might as well have fun!”
She also added,
“Just because you can never be perfect doesn’t mean you shouldn’t strive for perfection.”
I think there’s a scripture about this. I tried finding it, but I don’t remember what it is.
But it proves it’s point.

Ballet is all about perfection. It’s about technique, it’s about specifics, it’s about being exact. And no matter how close to perfection someone may get, they’re never going to be fully perfect. There will always be room for improvement. There will always be new things to learn and tweak.
So don’t beat yourself up if you can’t get it exactly right every time.

But, this doesn’t give us excuse to be lazy.
Even though perfection is impossible, we should still strive to be our best. Why would we want to do anything half way? And honestly, even if you don’t have everything exact, as long as you love what you do, it’s going to show. People are going to enjoy watching that.

In dance, as in life,
Perfection doesn’t matter, having heart does.
