1985: I wanted to go to ballet but my parents thought i was a whim and sended me to music school instead where i studied for 5 years.
1990: end of my studies at the music school and I am allowed to join the local balletschool. They dont want to take me in because I am so old and they have RAD ratings etc etc, So I go to the next village where I am anyway sorted with the 6 year olds with a promise that I will be transfered up as soon as I am ready. Clearly not ready after 6 months and I quite. It was not fun to be 12 among 6 year olds.
1993: starting my studies in Performing Arts at the Art Academy. That was cool! Mainly we learned theater etc, but modern dance was a major. I had the best time there and got quite good grades. My teacher was pushing me to audition at Maurice Bejarts Rudera school for higher dance education, but I never got to that point because I got sick and had to leave the arts school all together.
2005: Exactly 10 years after my exit from the dance scene I am back in the adult ballet class. Enjoying every minute of it and considering if I should take one more class a week in addition to the 2 classes I do now. Maybe modern again? I do miss it
