My Ballet Treasures

Hi Followers!


I would like to share with you today three of my most precious ballet treasures. Here they are, I hope you enjoy .....



My first pair of ballet shoes. I got them when I started ballet when I was only five years old. That was almost ten years ago! I have had them ever since!



This was my first ballet leotard that I also got when I was only five years old. When I got it, it was way pinker than it is now. I wore it for a year at class, then I used it for dress-ups for about four years afterwards!



And last but not least, my very first pair of pointe shoes. As precious as these shoes are to me, they actually weren't very good pointe shoes. The 'pointe,' was too small, so it made it very hard to dance on. These shoes bring memories of great joy ..... but also of great pain!

Hi Izi! What a sweet post! What brand and style were your first pointe shoes? I agree with the first commenter: I am sure you are amazing :) Maybe you could post a video of yourself dancing???? That would be SOOOO awesome! So there is my list of questions/requests for this post haha! Thanks so much for responding to me! You are so helpful ( even though i am probably annoying you with my humongous comments :)Have a lovely night!

Holly said...

Wow! What memories!
Ten years? That's awhile : )

Hi Juliette,

To be honest, I have no idea what brand my first pair of pointe shoese were. I just went and looked for you, actually, but I can't see any brand name. I think the key is just to buy pointes with a bigger 'pointe,' rather than a smaller 'pointe.'

Yeah I should post a video of myself dancing, hey - that's a great idea!

ha ha ha, really? I didn't think that I was THAT helpful, although I'm glad that I can be of some help to you.

Have a good ..... well, I guess you would be going into night time now!

Hi Julie,

ha ha, I thought that you were 'Juliette,' for a moment. I'm so glad that you like my blog. Yeah, I agree, 'A dancer's days,' is an awesome blog, too.

I'll think about taking a video of me dancing and putting it on my blog, probalem is, I don't have one at the moment. I'll try though. It seems like lots of people would like me to do that!

You have a sweet week, too!

Hi Julie!

Yeah, I sure an from Australia. And yes, apparently I talk with quite a thick Australian accent. ha ha ha. Where are you from?

Everybody is surprised when I say I'm from Australia.

Umm, when I first got on pointe I was 12 and three months.

How old are you?

Holly said...

Hey Izi,
I doubt Eloise will comment back! So I will. She's from Australia and she's my younger sister who doesn't have a blog, but looks at others.
Yes Lauren, that was Eloise you talked to, so don't worry that it was someone else : )

I hope you read my new blog too :) I like reading yours :) xx
I've really enjoyed reading it though, thanks so much, Jordan.

Izi said...

Hi Julie,

This is sooo cool, a bit like 'internet pall,' instead of pen palls.

Arizona, that's awesome. I thought that you would probably be from America, almost all my followers are from America.

12, ok, that's cool. I'm 14.

Have a nice day.

Izi : )
