I love, love, LOVE that picture of "Balance" ... so beautiful, so compelling. Thank you for sharing!
By the way, I'm in awe ... you're teaching BALLET? Woweee! :) I've danced all my life, but never ballet (started with Indian classical, now I do ballroom, Latin, jazz, and lots of Bollywood moves!) ... just never got a chance as a kid and never have taken a class as an adult. I think it's going on my to-do list for 2009.
I'm also getting back into the studio after not dancing for 4 years. OMG! I can't believe how hard it is, but one thing I've found over the years is that even when I can't dance for long stretches of time, my love for it never wanes. I'm happy you're getting back into class. We need to celebrate what we love. 3041 days ago
