Diary Update

I have noticed that recently, as in, the last few months, I have hardly told you anything about my ballet life.
I mean, sure, I've bee posting a lot. But they have all been 'advice,' articles. Personally, I think that's fine, and I'm sure you'd agree. In fact, it's probably better than just talking about me me me all the time.

However, I'm sure that you want to know what's I've been up to recently in my new ballet school.

Well, I've been having lessons on a Saturday morning. In these lessons I am working towards my Intermediate exam. I think I am doing OK in those lessons. I now know almost all the exercises, and am working to perfect them.

On Monday, I have a 'pointe class.' This whole class is done on pointe. Unlike my Saturday classes, I share this class with about six or seven other girls. I reckon I would be the youngest in the class.

They are all a good one or two years older than me. One of the girls is even at Uni! I don't really mind being the youngest, though. I fit in really well, and it's fun, too.

Our school is doing the musical, Cats. I overheard a conversation about a part in the musical where one of the cats does a solo dance. Apparently they don't have anyone to do that dance at the moment.

They were going to get a girl from year 12 to do it, because she dances, but I don't think she was all that keen on it.

My Mom went and talked to the music teacher at out school about it. I haven't heard anything about it since, but I'm hoping that I might get the part. How awesome would that be?

Fingers crossed.

So that's what's been happening in my dance life for the last term. I'll post soon ..... I promise !!

Cool Izi! I haven't heard from 'Your Ballet Point of View' for a long time, nice to have you back! lol (:

Mariella said...

Hello there! Let me begin by saying that I have thoroughly enjoyed what I read on your blog so far. My name is Mariella and I enjoy writing. Recently I have gotten the idea to write a book from the point of view of a girl with a tough life, whose only escape, her only way to express herself is through ballet. But I know nothing of dance...I was wondering if I could ask you questions as I go so I can better get into the mind of my character Pauly? Please answer me back! I would be so grateful!

Izi said...

Hi Mariella,

Wow, thank you so much for commenting. What a great idea to write that book. How old are you? My friend Lauren, who left a commetn just above your and I must reply to right after this, is also writing a book. But this one is about horses. In fact, her blog is about her book. You should check it out.

Anyway .... I would sooo love to answer ANY questions you have. What a privilege that you asked me! So ..... feel free to ask ANYTHING regarding dance and the like.

I'm going to go and check out your blog now.

Izi :)

Izi said...

Hello Lauren,

ha ha, yeah. I want to phone you actually, will try later!

Izi :)

Mariella Cecilia Catherine-Rose Hunt said...

Thanks Izi! Could I have an email address or an easier means by which I can contact you with questions? If that makes you uncomfortable then I'm totally fine with comments, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask :) I'm going to check Lauren's blog right now!

You can't imagine how grateful I am for this. I've wanted to write this book for so long but since I've never really danced, I don't know what it's like to be a dancer--much less having dance being the ONLY way I can express the truth. And since Pauly does ballet it would be real helpful for you to walk me through this. :) The book's going to be called BEAUTIFUL DANCING but that's all I know about it because I simply cannot get into Pauly's head!

Once again, thanks for commenting! I hope we can be friends as well! :) Ballet has fascinated me forever.

anway, i'll be on buzz at three! hope to see you there!


P.S. i did a guest post over at roses and bluebells. maybe you could go check it out?

Izi said...

Hey Mariella,

I'm really sorry, but I can't give you my e-mail address. If you have Google Buzz, we could chat on that, otherwise we'll just have to leave it to the comments. *sorry*

What did you think of Lauren's blog? It's good, hey?

ha ha. It's funny, cus' you're so grateful for this, and I feel SOOOO privileged that you actually chose ME to ask all these questions. I'm really excited :)

I know how you feel. I really really REALLY love writing too. But when you start writing about something you have NO IDEA about, it gets really hard.

So, start asking as many questions as you want. I'll answer them all, if I can. ha ha

Have a great day.

Izi :)

Izi said...

Hi Bri,

ha ha, yeah. I guess I'll have to have a celebration when I get to thirty!

Ummm, with Buzz, I actually ment yesterday, but today will be fine too, I hope. I'll try, anyway.

Looking forward to it .....

Yeah, I checked out your blog yesterday or the day before. Your guest post was very good. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Natalia is a good writer. I don't think I got around to commenting though. I should do that now.

Izi :)

Izi said...

Hi Bri,

I am SOO sorry that I wasn't online at 3:00. I totally forgot. Instead, I was watching T.V. Whoops. How about try another day. I truly did just forget. I am looking forward to chatting, though.

Izi :)

Izi said...

Hello Cassie,

Yeah, I really DO want the part. And I guess there is a chance. Well, quite a bit chance, I guess.
