My ballet journey started in 2014. I was only 7 years old and had soon discovered my passion for dance, in particular, ballet. The ways in which ballet has changed my life are innumerable! As I advance in school simultaneously, ballet has taught me how to manage my time. Who would have thought! Ballet has immensely increased my flexibility and strength, teaching me to care for my body throughout. It has been 5 and a half years since I entered the mystic portals of ballet and I feel that my abilities to work hard and consistently and to express myself have honed themselves, surpassing my expectations from ballet yet again. Moreover, it has made me understand that being hardworking, disciplined and attentive are the keys to a world of opportunities! Ballet is, I find, a fundamental part of every dance genre. My passion for ballet is also a way of soothing me. Ballet has been one of God’s greatest gifts and it continues to shape up my life and personality and will help me grow into a disciplined, young lady. All said and done, I guess ballet will always find a way to keep me on my toes!
