A Melange of Blogs

I loved ballet as a child.....
and I still love to dance...

A la barre
Stretching her legs
Her body warms
Becoming limber
Turning in the air
Making a step of the horse
Plie and glissade
Grand jete
Graceful  moves 
Her body responding
To the heartbeat of dance
I have combined three weekly blogs
for my own time constraints-
please click on all three links- 
you will not regret it!

Mrs. Chatterbox took ballet classes when she was a kid but I'm as graceless as they come.

Isn't 'glissade' a wonderful word? Thanks for dancing here!

I used to be an avid dancer, but one day I just stopped. I shouldn't have.

Have a terrific day. ♥♥♥

Love, love the combination of dancing and how it generates warmth.

Like Mrs. Chatterbox, i took ballet as a kid. Unlike her, it didn't help. Although i do like to watch the ballet.

Step of the horse...I felt that in my foot...

I wrote about my ballet past as well. I have very fond memories of dancing, but it was hard work at my studio. Kinda crazy. And our teacher, though a very talented one, was a piece of work.
