Ballet Girls

Thursday, November 4, 2010
Dears, are there things that enchant you every time you see them? The ballet world does that to me. I find this type of artistic expression so stimulating and relaxing at the same time. The way the ballerinas move, creating impressive shapes with their bodies and the pointy toes - just remarkable. It's a beautiful world! 
I could look at those photos for hours. Have you done ballet as a child? xoxo

Ps: Fancy a chit-chat? Join me on Twitter!

(thanks, Christina)

I danced ballet for a few months when I was 4! Alas, no motivation then I guess.

I love watching ballet and looking at photos of dancers. It's amazing what the body can do, beautifully!

Gorgeous! That's really one of my biggest regrets in life, that I gave up on ballet when I was little. If only I could go back in time...

I did and used to dream of becoming a great prima ballerina... but drawing eventually won out, so now I'm an illustrator instead :) These are so elegant and graceful... make me want to take a few refresher classes just for fun!

Stacey said...

Ballerinas are so graceful! Love these pictures. XX

Marie said...

I love ballet ! I agree with you it's stimulating and relaxing at the same time (very well put)
I've done ballet for 10 years and to me it's the best workout to help you look long, lean and graceful... I've already told V that we're going to see the Boston ballet this holiday season :)
sending you hugs and kisses from chilly Boston xx

No I didn't do ballet...did some jazz. But I would love for my little girl to give it a try! how fun.

e.day said...

i did ballet for 11 years. sometimes when i'm walking i just want to break out into a leap. but then people would think i'm more awkward than i am, haha.

when i hear classical music i always think of what exercise or part of class it would go best with. i miss it, but these pictures are so gorgeous.

Krystal said...

I did ballet when I was a little girl, I still remember and love those memories :)
