I grew up training in classical ballet. I continued that training during my college years (where I majored in Dance Education). One day, while I was in class, I remember being SO over ballet. My foot was killing me from having a blister that caved IN, I was sick of wearing a leotard and pink tights, and my head was hurting from all the bobby pins. While I was waiting to go across the floor, the Modern dance class down the hall caught my eye. They were rolling on the floor, dressed in sweats, dancing while accompanied by a live drummer. Everything I was not doing. From that moment on, I switched my dance focus. I was trained by a Modern Dance genius, and finally found a deep love for the art of dance. Now, though, as I'm a little older, I've found a real love for ballet as well. It's nice to stop the world for a moment and get lost in beautiful movement....(and now that I'm older, teachers don't make me wear a leotard and pink tights) :-)
