Tonight I am starting an 8-week adult ballet class. I started taking ballet classes in first or second grade and gradually added jazz and tap. I stopped tap after a few years but continued with ballet and jazz until I was 16. Junior year, I went through my "finding myself" phase and decided to stop dancing. Nearly 10 years later, I have decided to pick it up again. I used to love dance and it was a huge part of my life for so long, so I am excited to get back into it.
I went on Saturday to buy ballet shoes, tights, a leotard (that was fun, let me tell you...things don't look the same as the did when I was 15!), and a cute tank. I am ready!
I wanted to scan some photos of me as a kid in my dance costumes but didn't have a chance to dig them out at my mom's. So here are some of my favorite Degas', for now. :)
