It’s been a sad, sad ballet month thus far. My studio was closed for Thanksgiving week, and then I had to miss a couple of classes for silly reasons. My first class in two weeks was on Monday and I was So. Sore. the next couple of days!
BUT. Now it’s back to regular ballet!
. . . until Christmas and New Year’s roll in and screw up everyone’s schedule again.
How do you keep your ballet routine over the crazy holidays??
The only good thing about cold weather:
Getting to wear the Big Purple Leg Warmers!
No sunshine on Thursday. Because I skipped ballet class (*gasp!*).
It was one of those unavoidable things where life got in the way. It’s getting cold, and the heater needed turning on (For most people, I realize this is simple. But we have a geothermal wood burner heating our house, so it’s a bit trickier!). My sister and mom were out of town, and their horses needed tending. Work has been busy busy. By the time I even remembered it was ballet night, it was time to leave for ballet. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be.
The night of, I didn’t really miss it. I was tired and not too enthused about squeezing into a leotard.
But every night since, I’ve been kicking myself for not making it happen. I can’t believe I still have 4 more days until I can go to class again. I’ve found myself doing random plies around the house, as if to make up for lost class time.
So I’ve learned an important ballet lesson: In the words of the incomparable Tim Gunn, “Make it work!” Life can try to get in the way all it wants, but this girl is going to ballet. No excuses!
