“Starting ballet is not easy, but it is worth it.
When I took my first ballet classes, nothing was given to me. Although I was already 15 years old, weak and shy, I was determined to push myself. Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try. Today, I have achieved two Russian method ballet exams and participated in two RSB productions. The key is to never quit even though some obstacles and struggles will push you to. Don’t be afraid to start if you are a teenager or an adult, ballet is for everyone!
I not only wanted to do ballet because it is an outstanding art form, but I also wanted to challenge myself as I absolutely did not know how to express myself through motion and music. I would have never imagined the amount of hard work and precision needed.
Keep in mind that if you believe in yourself, you can achieve anything. As Nikos Kazantzakis once said, ‘’In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can’’.
