Tonight I went back to ballet. I didn't go to my usual studio - that's too much of a pain and a long drive right now. I instead went to Maple Conservatory, a studio that's literally RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER from the apartment. It's more expensive than Lois, but I'm only planning to go once a weekish so the money will go pretty far.
It was so nice to dance again, even though I can't get my leg as high right now. It felt weird to be back in class, because I hadn't gone for about 2 months and had been going very irregularly before that, but I was pleased to see that I still had it. :) Rusty, but still had it.
I really want to put ballet back into my life again, even if it's just one class a week. I think I'm finally at the point where I can do that and love it again and not get caught up in the politics of it. That's another nice thing about going to a new place - no one knows you and you can start fresh. (However, I did see and talk to a girl I knew from when I went to Anaheim Ballet several years ago - the ballet world is so tiny!)
Tomorrow is Friday. Thank goodness!!
