I loved it espically the concerts.:love I did it for eight years and soon fell in love with everyone that I was working with.I did ballet jazz and tap through the years.Then I turned 12 I decided I wasn't happy and after 9 years of living with my wonderful grandparents I moved with my father in a new state with leaving I left ballet and I haven't been back since the day I said I was leaving.I miss ballet but ever since I've moved here I have a new reputation to work with I'm not the good girl doin twirls in the dance studio anymore.I don't know .....I miss it sometimes though...
