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.
