Day 99: Dreams of Ballet

I took an amazing ballet class at The Washington Ballet taught by the phenomenal Aaron Jackson. The class consisted of those who have never done ballet before to prima ballerinas. The age and experience disparity of the class spoke to the quality of the instructor. I never felt out of my depths even though I knew I would never be a professional ballerina. I miss the live accompanist, moving across the floor, the adagios, yes the adagios, everything. I’m no longer living in D.C. but I did learn a lot. I’m still looking for a similar ballet class in Denver. Hopefully I will find one. In the meantime I’ll do the New York Ballet YouTube warm ups naked in my apartment. Make it work ladies!
