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. 💛🖤

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.
