A Professional Ballerina


Hey guys welcome back. So since I was quite little in the back of my mind I’ve always had a secret wish.

I’d honestly love to one day be a professional ballerina.

I know it’s practically every little girl’s dying wish but I have always loved ballet so much. I love being so graceful and light on my feet. Sometimes I even catch myself doing small steps at the most random times. My mother has told me repeatedly that if I really wanted to pursue this dream, she is all for it.

Truth be told though, I’m not sure I’ve had enough training at this point in my life. The majority of professional ballerinas have their career figured out very young. I currently go to a small studio in the center of town but as much as I love it, I know I wouldn’t be able to learn the skills needed to be professional.

But even so, the idea of going on a stage and becoming something, someone, else is really appealing.

I’ve never wanted to grow up so essentially playing dress-up everyday doesn’t sound so bad either.

Even though I know its highly unlikely at this point, I’ll do my research and learn as much as I can about the world of professional ballet. Maybe one day I will preform onstage with an amazing company.

This all came up because I finally got around to re-reading Taking Flight, a memoir by a professional ballerina. It has made me think more about my secret dream and whether or not I actually want to go for it.

See ya soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
