Been a while - lots of changes

Hello ballet folks, NYSylph, Serendipity, etal....been a while since I've read/posted. Much has happened. I am no longer at the studio I had been attending for over 20 years. The two ballet teachers, husband and wife, were unceremoniously let go as of February 28. March 1 they stated teaching at a new studio, still in the same city. I made a decision to follow them to the new place. Far less drama and still the same, wonderful, solid Vaganova teaching. I am a little more involved with the school, helping a bit with the desk, school Facebook page, and general publicity about where A & N are now teaching. You would think that after 20 years at a studio, I would miss it, I don't.

I've also started taking a variations class at another studio, with a Russian teacher. In a word, it is fabulous. Of course there is far more to the story of the new school than I can write publicly, but it was a wise decision to leave when I did.

It's good to hear from you and nice to hear that you're still dancing especially that it's in such a positive sounding environment.

So glad you made this decision.

Ballet is tough enough without the environment sucking all the joy out of you.

I'm very glad it's working out for you and extremely jealous :) about the variations class. Oh, I used to love those.

Congrats.

Hey, ladies. How are you? Been busy and have not posted in a while. Have had a lot of changes and family medical situations. The changes have been with my studio. I finally was able to get back to class with the fall semester. There were more people showing up for adult ballet now. I hope it is sustainable. I'd like to get back to about two classes a week with my work schedule and family situation.The local ballet school would love to have me back,but I have been gone so long it would need for me having to take the basics again to get back to where I would need re-take some basics to get back to where I was. Performing has always been a goal but it will be put off again. I do love class. I love the workout and I love the challenge physically.
