I wanted to add something new to Miss Alice Beauty and share a bit about a new challenge I have undertaken!
The “Bon Ballet Diary” will be a weekly installment of the challenges, obstacles, and rewards of starting ballet at twenty-something with no prior experience. I embarked on this journey despite the fact that I am in a class of hyper fourteen year olds and against all gravitational odds that make me feel less than graceful.
Thus far I have had four classes of which I have been cramming more vocabulary then an elementary school class. Tendus, arabesques, releves, and more that I can’t even remember! As far as feeling sore…let’s just say getting out of bed has never felt more awful yet rewarding. I am beyond excited to learn and grow more. I have taken it upon myself to work on flexibility and strengthening from home. Here are a few of my favorites from the last few gym visits:
- Ballet Beautiful: Lean Legs and Butt Shaper with Mary Helen Bowers
- Flexibility Stretches with Psyche Truth
- Plie Challenge with Blogilates
I firmly believe these have helped me. The last class my instructor noted that I looked more flexible. *Unreal excitement* Needless to say, they have become part of my rotation!
Until next time. Take care!
