I hope you are all having a lovely day! Today I wanted to share with you 5 things that ballet has taught me about myself as a person. Enjoy 🙂
1. Accept corrections
I feel like people will think they are bad or can’t do something when they get a correction. To be honest I used to feel like this, until I realised how good it is to get corrections! The photo below is a quote that I just love as it is so true! I am now always thankful and take on board corrections I am given as it will make me a better dancer.
2. Believe in myself
This is something I am still working on. I always knew I wanted to be a ballerina, but need to believe in myself more that I can do it! My family are so supportive about this and always tell me that I can achieve my dreams, I just need to believe in myself, which I do! 🙂
3. Always room for improvement
This is a must in ballet. You have days where you think to yourself oh I’m never going to be able to do that fast jump combination etc but there is always room for improvement! It just takes hard work and determination to achieve it.
I have always been a confident person, but ballet has been a massive part of that. From performing on stage from the age of 4, you developed the sense of the stage being your home and just dancing makes me feel like I can do anything and that I am the most confident person in the world!
5. How far to push myself
I feel like at times ballet can push you to your limits as I always want to be better than myself and it helps me to find how far I can push myself to achieve better than I did yesterday.
Thank you very much for reading! I really hope you enjoyed, feel free to comment below 🙂
