I've also made some amazing friends in my classes. Lindsey is only two years younger and in jazz with me, she is such a sweet, amazing girl. She's convinced me and Huma are super old though. She explained that this is because her dad is dating a 23 year old and Huma being 21, could be her. When she said this I repiled back with "Well...er...thats your dads issue not us being old!". It didn't even make sense but it was so funny. I love all my friends in class like Andrea and Natasha and just everyone! They've all made me feel so welcome!
Dance hasn't been what I expected at all. The people you do things with really impact your opinions of something. With cheerleading this year, I had thirteen year olds googling me and shit talking me constantly. The bitchy environment of practice made me want to shoot something. I thought the girls at dance would be a lot worse then cheer but maybe I just found the right studio! Who knows.
I'm a little mad that I haven't really been dancing on pointe right all year. Every mistake I've been making has been either something I realize myself or pointed out by Huma. I need some serious one on one lessons this summer. I'M READY TO TRAINN!! (Huma is taking me to this severly strict studio tonight and being that I don't know anything I'm beyond terrified)
I'll post some of my actual dance photos soon but for now, here is me and my friend Huma goofing off on a trampoline. Also, some dance inspo!
Starting ballet or dance at an older age can be a struggle. I called about 10 studios before I found one where the person on the phone would even talk to me. There is a way, it might not be easy but believe me! People will admire you after you start proving to them you want to work hard at it!
I'm so happy I get to be like YEAH BITCHES! I DID POINTE TOO, when I'm like 80. Seriously, I can't live with myself if I can't tell people I did everything I wanted too when I'm older. Not that I'm going to stop at any point..
