The Ballerina Look: Twirling at the end of year show.....for a love of dance!

Polly and me getting ready backstage for our little ballet performance!
Helloo my lovely darlings! Apologies for the delay in has been a very full week from BouBou's Birthday to work and ballet! Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments and support as usual...every single one is most appreciated and I am catching up on the replies! Some of you may know that I have been taking a Beginners Ballet course for some time and it was the Performing Arts End of Year Show on Friday 29th June 2012!

So together with other dance forms such as Flamenco, African, Contemporary and Belly Dancing, our Ballet class took the stage at the Brady Arts Centre in Whitechapel (East London) for a night of celebration with family and friends. Unfortunately I only have some practice and backstage photos, as my friends were unable to join us for the night, but on the plus least the secret of how bad and clumsy a ballerina I really am shall stay hidden! Most importantly I really enjoyed performing with my ballet classmates, and the fluttering excitement of going on stage reminded me of my girlhood when I used to perform cultural dances! My friend Polly, who is beautifully passionate about dance, was taking front stage in performing the Flamenco as well as Ballet with us! If you happen to be a great dancer or a Ballerina then please do forgive me for my clumsy port de bras and rusty foot positions....eventhough I love dancing I must admit I don't have a natural talent for it and often lack hand-eye-body-etc-coordination skills. So without further is some photos of the End of Year Show evening and I hope you will like my ballerina look!

Besides Ballet and Birthday celebrations, I also received a lovely surprise from the sweet Wendy at the Butterfly Balcony on BouBou's Birthday......she awarded me with the 'One Lovely Blog Award'! [Link to Wendy's blog, the Butterfly Balcony:] Lots of thanks to Wendy and there will be more on that in a more formal receiving award post, as well as some ideas for special occasion looks as the wedding season is just round the corner! Right.....I am off to get ready for a leaving do and a Birthday at the Dorsia tonight! Have a fabulously sweet weekend my darlings and enjoy the sunshine!

Until the next time,
May xx

  1. Awww May you look the very epitome of a Prima Ballerina! I used to take ballet classes as a child and was once told by the teacher that I had all the grace of a fairy elephant, which can't be good;) I hope Bou Bou had a great Birthday and that you had a wonderful time last night! Enjoy your sunday xx
