Ballerina Moment

When I was a kid, a few of my friends visited a ballet school. One day after school I went with a friend to the dance center.  This was my first contact with all these beautiful girls, dancing with so much grace. I could have watched them for hours. The way they did their hair, the ballet dresses, and the music, I loved everything. My dream was to become a ballerina.

My ballerina moment part one

After a few days, I convinced my parents that it is an excellent idea that I take ballet lessons too. It was so exciting to buy all the dance equipment, the dance dress, the tights and the dance shoes. Then I visited my first dancing lesson. I remember that it was not easy to follow and the teacher was rigorous and demanding.  A few months later my age group had a show. Unfortunately, my teacher did not consider me.

A few months later the teacher had a chat with my parents. She told them that I have no talent to dance and she would recommend that I try something different. As a kid, this is something you don’ t understand and you are not willing to accept. Anyway, my next activity was swimming.

My ballerina moment part two

Because sometimes it is not that easy to let dreams go, I had a second attempt at the age of 35. First of all finding a course for adults was not as challenging as I thought. I booked a beginner course. Ten Saturday morning lessons. Again huge excitement when I brought my dance equipment.  After the first lesson I knew that ballet dancing is a sport and exausting. Unfortunately my knee started acing after the third lesson and I had to give up. At least I have tried.

Everything starts with a dream. Sometimes we face a task, and we fail. In some cases, you should try again and again because failing is something normal. You have the chance to learn a lot from your failure and make it better or just different the next time.

Usually, I don’t use the word failure. I am a very curious and love to try new things. For me, it is more collecting experience and moments.

    I thought I recognise that Chanel necklace, little stunner! You look lovely, such a nice feminine and playful outfit. I think my childhood dream was to be a signer, however I never really pursued that dream. Who knows …

    You look beautiful and I love this look, especially the skirt.
    I had a similar experience with ballet – it just wasn’t for me, but I was better at less graceful sports like running!

    Love your determination and that you are still attempted to dance later on in life. Keep dancing beautiful friend. I was always fascinated with ballet but growing up in South Africa I never got the opportunity to explore these beautiful dance. I do enjoy going to the ballet now though. Love your tulle skirt and the color is fabulous. Thank you for sharing.

    Yes I wanted to take dance lessons too as kid, but there were no lessons or activities as we could not afford them. But at least it spared me finding out I was not good at something. I can move well to music and take direction, I have often been complimented when I use to go out dancing that I dance well, but professional dancing? Not so much, mainly I don’t have the body for it. Yes I am tall and thin but not athletic. Although thin my body is gawky and stiff–not limber. Even in my teens so yeah, dance? Gymnastics? Nope.

    But yep we should all try and that skit is so cute, looks lovely on you, you are having a Carrie Bradshaw in Paris moment.

    So ein süßer Post! Ich musste wirklich schmunzeln, denn auch ich habe mich als Kind als Ballerina versucht und bin kläglich gescheitert. Es war einfach nichts für mich und ich kann mich noch daran erinnern, dass ich mich nie so richtg wohl gefühlt habe. zum Glück hat sich das nun geändert, denn ich liebe Tüllröcke! An Dir sehen die auch wirklich wundervoll aus!

    Oh, I have always loved ballerinas as well! Gymnastics is as close as I got when I was little and I really liked it. You look fabulous in this ballerina outfit, dear, and I agree that one must never stop chasing their dreams and try to learn from past experiences. Have a lovely week ahead, dear Esther
