I THINK this is an achievement! I am on my 4th pair of pointes, but I broke the shank of my first pair that didn't have redwood in them by DANCING in them, not by breaking them in!! Is that an achievemnet??

It has been awhile now since I got my pointe shoes, and I have my double en pointe, fouette ronde jambes, and italian fouettes!!! Oh yeah, I also got my toe hops thanks to a harder shank.

I did a ton of awesome perfect fouettes en pointe!!!! We were taking a five minute break and so I was practicing and I just kept going and going!!! Everyone was standing around me and clapped and cheered when I stopped! I felt so great!! But then I turn and see my ballet teacher was starring at a wall the entire time...and missed the entire thing...:( I was devastated. BUT STILL THRILLED THAT I NAILED MY FOUETTES!!!!

Well, that's a great idea:) Ok, for mine, I just started pointe, and me and one other girl were the only ones that were strong enough from our big pre-pointe class:)
Yay for me:)

I'm going into my 3rd year of dancing and I'm the youngest in my entire class since I'm in the highest level that consist of college kids and 1-2 ballet company dancers. I'm the only student that has a scholarship :D

I'm blessed to be able to dance in tough times
