Studying art and music from the Renaissance through Post Impressionist periods includes other mediums of art, such as opera and ballet. Today we met a professional ballerina. She told us all about her life as a ballerina and how long and hard she has worked as a dancer. Just thinking about it makes my feet hurt.
Later she took the students outside to learn how to dance together.
At this age, boys usually do not want to dance with girls.
There were plenty of sour faces being made.
I know someone in my house who wants to be a professional ballerina when she grows up.
Ballet requires years of training and practice; but that is why it is a beautiful art.
