When coming up with names for my blog I thought of many different combinations. I settled on imitation ballerina because it summed up what my goal was at the time. I knew I would never actually ever be a ballerina, but I could try my best to look like one, right?
Well, it looks like I am well on my way! haha
Earlier this week my aunty said she showed a photo of me to one of her friends and her friend apparently said „She looks like a ballerina!“
and no, she didn’t know that I did ballet
and no, I wasn’t doing any ballet-y things in the photo.
It was just my upper body.
Then to top it off, later in the week someone at work asked if I do ballet. Though this time I am guilty of doing something ballet-y. I was standing on my tippy toes to serve customers over the desk.
He said I was doing it so confidently.
Other than that, I didn’t do too many ballet related things this week.
On my days off from work (I only work part time now), I have been alternating between a day of perfecting my pirouettes and a day of doing pointe work.
My dedication definitely took a beating after coming back from holidays.
By pointe work, I mean the Level 1 pointe work from the my beginner pointe work DVD. They recommend doing Level 1 for a minimum of 6 months. If I minus my holiday, and the few weeks I didn’t do anything, than I am really only about 3 months in.
Next week I am hoping to do another private with my company contact. It will probably be the last one 😦
Hope you all had a lovely week!
