Out of the Hood Ballet Program~

I'm teaching ballet this year at the high school.

This is the high school's first year of actually offering ballet.

I love ballet. I love the discipline, the technique, the beauty of it...everything.

The kids seem to be enjoying it. Somewhat.

We were talking the other day about Marie Taglioni.

Yes. This is Marie Taglioni. She was basically one of the first prima ballerinas of the 19th century.

In the 19th century, ballerinas were the ULTIMATE SUPER STARS! Kinda cool, if you ask me.

Hopefully you're not asleep yet from my dance history lesson.

Marie Taglioni was so famous...someone bought her pointe shoes and made them into a stew to eat for dinner.


So...I'm having this discussion with the girls. I'm trying to explain to them just how famous Taglioni was...so I ask them to tell me someone who is a famous superstar right now....someone that people would remember for years to come.

I'm thinking the Audrey Hepburn, Bob Marley, Frank Sinatra type.

Their answer...

In case you have no clue who this is. This is Lil Wayne. Yes...his name is Lil Wayne. And yes, this is his mug shot.

I don't need to say anything else about this situation do I?

I immediately had to change the subject.

Lil Wayne? I have a lot of work to do...sigh....~
