My name is Emilee and I have been dancing since October 2011 when I began just after turning 23. I decided that if I ever wanted to make anything of this silly dream of mine, I better do something about it before I was out of chances.
Terrified, I took that first class at Instep Dance Studios and kept coming back, even when I was terrified or confused or whatever. I wanted this more than I was afraid of it, and I wouldn’t let myself give up. I knew I couldn’t live with that regret. My worst day at dance is still better than my best day not dancing.
I began blogging in 2012 after realizing how much of dance class could be applied to normal life. As my life has evolved, so has this blog. (For more details, please see “The Backstory” page.)
The blog covers my thoughts, feelings, and experiences throughout this ballet life of mine.
Thanks for reading about all my nights at the barre. For commenting such kinda and encouraging words. For taking interest in my story. I hope you find something in this for you.
