Daily Thoughts of a Dancer

Breathe in and out

Arms up above my head...make them round

Focus and don't forget to breathe

Why didn't I straighten my knee?

Deep breath and push through my ankles

Work this. Remember that.

Shoulders down. You're not on flat!

 

My feet are aching me

Can this class be finished please?

One more time across the floor

I'd rather be walking out the door

Finally time to come to center

Look in the mirror and practice bows

As if I'd do this for a crowd

Class is done. Pointe shoes off.

Ballet starts at eight o' clock!
