It’s a small world!

This past weekend I was reunited with one of my ballet classmates from high school. We hadn’t seen each other in almost 10 years, since the day of our senior recital when we hugged each other goodbye and said ‘have a great life’! When we saw each other on Saturday, we screamed and hugged and laughed and talked about how amazing it was to see one another after so many years. And the best part was finding out that our dance teacher is still teaching, and there is an adult ballet class on Tuesday nights at my old studio! Amaaaazing!

I am kicking myself for not thinking about calling them 6 months ago when I got here to ask about that! But, I know now, and I get to dance again for the first time in several years, with a teacher I love and an dear former classmate! I went to the class last night, and loved how quickly and easily the whole routine came back to me. Even though it has been a long time since I have taken a class, ballet is wonderful in that you never leave the basics. The barre warm up routine is generally the same, whether you have danced once or a million times. The fun comes when you get on to the floor exercises and can learn harder and harder steps.

It was fun surprising Miss Connie when I arrived last night, and the class was delightful. It is fun dancing with the other ladies as well, many of whom are new to ballet! I am looking forward to the next few months with them before moving overseas!

Me with Miss Connie and Nicole! So delightful dancing with them again!
