I was re-watching Black Swan last night and it reminded me how much I love ballet and how much I miss taking ballet lessons. Ballet has always been one of my passions/hobbies. I took ballet lessons from the age of 3 to 18 and dance kind of consumed my life. I had to do a 5 minute presentation about one of my hobbies at a uni interview, so I decided to do it about the Royal Ballet. Approximately 10 minutes, 35 slides and millions of photos later, I was still talking... Oops! Although I wasn't always in love with it, as I grew up I fell more in love with the steps, the musicality and the prima ballerinas. I stopped taking ballet lessons due to my A-Levels and really wish I hadn't. I'm tempted to look for an adult ballet class in Birmingham, but my uni timetable will be rather crazy next year, so I don't know if that will be a possibility...
Inspired by 'Black Swan' and all the ballet trends at the moment, I decided to share a few of my favourite ballet photos with you. It took me ages to pick these, because I have so many favourites!
Do/Did any of you take ballet lessons? What are your passions?
Thank you for reading. xoxo, Joy
