After numerous requests to starting posting 'my typical day', it was about time I got around to doing just that!!
As we are only just warming up to that start of the season, days are not so frantic! (though I do still think I need more than 24 hours to a day!)
As the weeks pass, days will feel shorter, crazier and tiring.... but also performances, which are the 'perks' to all our hard work! I'll try and make this post a regular fixture to my blog.
It took nearly an hour to sort out my things!!! Have way too much ballet gear, no idea how I collected so much OR how it all fits in my cupboard, but on the plus side, found things I had totally forgotten I owned :)
We have an hour and a quarter class every morning. We always have separate girls and boys classes and rotate different teachers throughout the week.
Usually after a 15 minute break, our first rehearsal of the day begins.....
It isn't everyday that we walk on to stage to find the inside of a church set out!!!
This set was for the opera, so we took the opportunity to sit amongst the pews, waiting for the stage crew to remove it!
I am an avid fan of pilates, this last year in particular....
My new interest is also the gym! Naturally being on the skinny side, I am determined to beef up..... a little!!! Concentrating on my abdominals, back and arms, it's a killer and I have to force myself in there, murmuring the mantra in my head of NO PAIN, NO GAIN!!! (Is that true!!!???)
The Opera House has a new, swanky looking piano this season and we took to the stage to introduce it to the world!!!
At the end of a long day, it's costumes hung up and time for home.....

And tomorrow, we will see how many ballerinas fit in to a 'Toyota Yaris'.... no joke!!!!
