The long weekend is finally here, and I am both physically and mentally preparing myself for this weekend. I am spending the weekend out of state at a festival 3 hours from here. I am going to be dancing from 8:00 in the morning to 9:30 at night everyday, and I am leaving tomorrow at noon to arrive at the hotel around 3:00 or 4:00 in the evening. This way, we can attend the first show which starts at 7:00 that night. I am going to be in many performances while I am there, but throughout the day, I am going to have classes until about 6:00. That is when the onstage rehearsals start. I am going to be taking roughly 6 ballet classes everyday this weekend, and I am really looking forward to it! I had other class options that I could have chosen from, but I personally wanted to take as much ballet as possible so that I could improve my technique. After all, ballet is my top priority and it is my number one goal over all of the other styles of dance that I enjoy. I better get back to packing! I will be sure to post Monday afternoon and share my ballet journal entries from this weekend with everyone! Wish me luck on my performances, hopefully we can pull them off! 😉
I found this video and thought that you might enjoy it, this is pure strength and passion. When you get about halfway through the video, the movements become true and real. It becomes visible that he is truly feeling the music. It’s like he’s…. Lost In Motion
World Ballet Day is almost over, but I just had to post on this very special day! 🙂 I hope that everyone had a great day, and hopefully you were able to watch some clips of the world famous ballet’s! Anywhere from classes to performances, to rehearsals, they filmed it all and got in depth on an average day in the company!! HAPPY WORLD BALLET DAY!!!!!! 😀
Wow, it is hard to believe that the out-of-state dance festival is in two weeks!! Good news, both of our dance pieces were accepted to enter the competition. Now, it is all a matter of if we can perfect them in time! I am getting very excited for this fun event, and am really looking forward to it. We are going to be performing a ballet piece from Giselle, along with a modern piece self-choreographed by our amazing teacher and choreographer, Ms. Megan. We have been rehearsing really hard, and I hope that all of our practicing and hard work will pay off. Our costuming for the Giselle piece is beautiful! We have gorgeous head pieces to match our white stunning dresses, and it should really be an outstanding performance. It is only in TWO WEEKS!!!!!!!!!! (I can’t wait, it was so much fun last year!) This year, I will be sure to take a journal and create entries throughout the day so that I can share my adventures with everyone. I will blog again as soon as I can! 🙂 In the meantime, I better go and sew my new pointe shoes for tomorrows classes. Lol.

I don’t know where time has gone! This beautiful little bird has won my heart through the past 5 years and we have been through so much together. From ballet to everyday life, getting a pet bird has been one of the best things that has ever happened to me. She is my best friend, my companion, and my gorgeous little baby. She is always full of excitement and joy, and always makes everyone smile! Her 6th birthday is coming up soon, and I am so proud of her. It is her snack time, so I am going to go and feed her, before she gets upset! 😀 Sending happiness from my week to yours! I hope that this made you smile!! 🙂
Okay, okay…. I guess I didn’t do schoolwork today…. I took today off, but don’t worry! I am going to make up for it Saturday and work extra long hours tomorrow. For some reason, my homeschooling program does not offer Fall Break, so we kind of took one day off to make up for it. 😉 Anyway, last night, me and my younger sister were both able to invite one of our best friends over for a sleep over. The little kids went to sleep around 12:00AM. However, believe it or not, me and my friend accidentally pulled an all nighter…. We originally went to bed at 1:00AM, but we couldn’t sleep a wink! We ended up finally falling asleep around 5:30AM!!!! That meant that we only got 3 hours of sleep last night! It was a long night, that’s for sure, but waking up to my mother’s French Toast made up for it. 🙂 I will see my friend again next Monday when dance starts up again, hopefully we will have regained sleep and energy by then. Lol. 😀
It is officially Autumn today! I hope that everyone has a great First Day of Fall! Hopefully we have a sunny and warm rest of the week! 😉
Enjoy the Liveliness of The Season
“As the leaves change into vibrant, welcoming colors, and while the wind blows it’s soft breeze into winter, enjoy the liveliness of this season. As leaves begin to fall, and the trees become bare, enjoy the liveliness of this season. Take a long look at all of the beauty and blessings are around you… As we welcome Autumn into the year of 2015, enjoy every bit of it. Take a deep breath and soak it all up, because it will disappear in a midst of snow before you even know….”
That was kind of just a quick poem off of the top of my head as I enjoy every piece of today in my own little way! 🙂 I cant stop rhyming! 😀 HAPPY FIRST DAY OF FALL!!!!!
