Saying goodbye isn't always easy when you like something very much. I recently decided that I would say goodbye to ballet and move on to focus some of my other activities. It isn't that I didn't like ballet, it was just because I had too many activities, and I was only doing ballet once a week. I have been doing ballet for 2 and a half years. I appreciate watching the real ballerinas perform. They make the moves look really easy, doing many turns and leaps. However, now that I have tried, I know how extremely hard it really is and how much they work to get their routines just right. My favorite ballet teacher I have ever had is Eryka. I really liked her and she taught me many new moves. She would always correct me and teach me new skills I didn't know. She was also extremely kind. I will miss her very much! I still enjoy dancing, and maybe I will stop by and take a few classes here and there.
I also became close with the the receptionist Gabrielle and her little dog Seven. Gabrielle named her dog Seven because she found her on the streets on July 7th which was also Gabby's birthday. Gabby would watch our class and encourage us to do well. Gabby would sometimes bring her dog Seven, and let me hold her before class. Seven now serves as the official Goodwill Ambassador of the ballet school. She is adorable!
