I’m back at it again. I’m not entirely sure if I ever mentioned that I grew up dancing but if not I’ll say it now. It wasn’t just extracurricular for me, it was life- or a huge chunk of it. I was at the studio in class nearly every evening each week, constantly moving, stretching and embracing all the rhythm and movement I could endure. I loved it.
Although I have been dancing on and off all my life, two weeks ago I started up with ballet again. I might not be dancing Swan Lake any time soon but the feeling I get from spinning and leaping across the room is still very much the same. The other thing that remains the same? I’m still very much a hip hop dancer and my ballet teacher knows it.
