I still feel a little bittersweet even though it has been nearly 6 years since I sold my dance studio to one of my employees. I still love my dancers and miss them but I don't miss the hours & hours of paperwork and cleaning up after 500 students.
Coined "the little pink dance studio" by my friend & tap teacher, Gregory, it was extra cute on this rare snow day. I still own the pink building but not the business. I'm so happy I still have my non-profit ballet company which lives at our Theatre because without that connection to the magical world of ballet I would not have the pleasure of seeing a little Gingersnap present a bouquet to the Sugar Plum Fairy...
I love classical music and tutus, flowers and tiaras. I love seeing a little girl begin ballet and blossom into a real ballerina 10 years later. Having the studio was a dream come true for me because Haley could come to "work" with me every single day when she was a little girl. That's a mothers prayer. And to say I am proud of Haley for learning to dance is the truth. She's incredible.
Life is different now... and I like it! I'm going to close the comment option on my blog for a while to save YOU the time it takes to comment. Thank you for reading and hopefully enjoying my periodic vents, rants, feelings and mostly my Insights from the Magic Tutu. Oh! And I hope you like my new blog banner.
