There’s a sort of comfort I feel watching ballet. The music, the precise placing of the feet and body language, not only putting on a show but to take you on an adventure with the dancers.
I did ballet when I was younger, lets say around the age of 5. I didn’t do it for long, but I did it long enough to know that dancing is not for me. Although being apart of the audience doesn’t sadden me. No. In fact I prefer to watch the show, I get a slight tingle of excitement in my stomach knowing I’m going to be casted away into a daydream like land of the imagination for a couple of hours.
Here where I live we don’t get a lot of performances like these, to go dress up nicely to. That’s what makes the experience even better!
Tonight they didn’t preform one specific piece, they showed the development throughout history. They way the put everything together it makes me so what proud I almost want to cry about it. From the romance to the drama of the stories I do feel apart of it.

Question today is: what era is your favourite type of dance from?
