23-B by Beverly

This week at ABC Wednesday, the letter of focus is B.

B is for Ballet and ballet shoes.

As a young girl, I took ballet lessons, even took part in a ballet recital. I was terrible and really was never graceful. I can remember hiding after my brother let me off one day, so that I wouldn’t have to go to a lesson.

I wore little slippers, nothing like the ballet slippers that ballerinas use to go en pointe.

I felt the quote fit the torture many ballerinas must go through – the hours of practice, the pain, the bruises, the intense discipline.

Yet, when you watch a ballet, you cannot help but be enthralled by the effortless beauty of the ballerinas., their skill,  and their passion.

  1. These days when I watch ballet, I can’t help but think of the pain in their joints the dancers might feel when they get older. I suppose it’s because I got older and have painful joints. Never was a ballet dancer or took ballet lessons.
