after running into one of my former ballet classmates last night at The Farmhouse, I've decided to go ahead and re-enroll in the fall session of Ballet I at the Flynn.  I thoroughly enjoyed the session that I took last spring, and I have kind of missed practicing my rond de jambe and plie moves, as well as, of course, wearing all-black, leg warmers, and pink ballet shoes.

while I will never, ever, ever have the grace or lithe limbs of the ballerinas in the Royal Danish Ballet, it's nice to pretend and just work on perfecting my sous sus.
