How adult ballet reignited my love for dance
We asked one of our adult ballerinas what they love about our adult ballet classes at Twinkle Toes and this is what they said:
“I danced throughout my childhood but gave it up in my twenties when I got busy with work and other commitments. I’d always wanted to pick it up again and got really nostalgic when I watched shows like “Strictly Come Dancing” or went to the theatre. Then I had children and I thought my dancing days were done.
It wasn’t until I enrolled my daughters in ballet classes with Twinkle Toes that I realised Miss Felecity ran an adult class on Wednesday evenings. I deliberated over going for months until one day I decided to buy a pair of ballet shoes. Once I had the shoes I figured I had better put them to use rather than let them gather dust in my wardrobe.
I arrived on a Wednesday evening feeling a bit nervous, having not danced for many years and never having done ballet. I need not have worried as Miss Felecity was lovely, the class was fun and the level just right for beginners (like me!) or intermediate dancers.
I have been turning up to classes for almost two years now and it is honestly a highlight of my week. Everyone knows I’m not available on a Wednesday evening because that’s my ballet night!”
