Swan Lake

Today was a good day. I slept in, made crepes for us, took a nice run outside, and went to see Swan Lake with my mom and my sisters. For Christmas, my mom got all the boys in the family tickets to two Jazz games, and got the girls tickets to Swan Lake. The ballet was absolutely wonderful! It was so beautiful! Ballet is not my dancing style. I am terrible at it in fact, but I love it so much. I wish I could look like that when I dance, so effortless. I took quite a few ballet classes at SUU, and it not easy, and yet, these dancers made it look like a piece of cake! I on the other hand, probably looked like a hippo flouncing across the floor with two left feet.

Seeing this ballet really made me miss dancing. I miss the feeling of doing a hard sequence, and struggling so much with it, and when I finally got it, it was the best feeling in the world. (especially in my ballet class) I miss the feeling of sweating and just being so tired after multiple dance classes. I miss going home and showing my roommates my dances weather it be me trying to do ballet, showing off what I did in modern, or putting on my taps and trying to be cool, and annoying my neighbors below us. I felt good about myself all the time when I was dancing, and I was in the best shape of my life. Now I sit behind a desk 8 hours of my day. If only I could find a night dance class, my life would be that much better!

Tonight after the ballet when I got home, I put the music on and tried to show my poor husband the kinds of things they were doing. It was fun, but I'm pretty sure I made him not want to see a ballet with me ever! Ha ha!


  1. You know...if you buy tickets to the ballet...he'll have no choice but to go with you cause you already got the tickets! Haha! You should totally do that! I love how much you love dancing :). I know how happy it makes you! Plus...I love to see you tap dance around when you're feeling a bit goofy. It makes me smile :). And you don't look like a hippo! You look wonderful!

  2. I agree with Ashley. I wish you could have done some ballet for us after Sunday dinner :)

  3. Ha ha! Thanks girls. Maybe next time i'll bust a move.
