even though, since I was 4 years old, I've been heavily involved in gymnastics and cheerleading, I never formally studied dance (specifically ballet), even though I always wanted to. when I began classes last summer, my desire was to level up by the following summer.
and I did. today, I found out that I can begin Ballet II next fall. I'm so happy because I met a goal that has nothing to do with writing or my career, but a different kind of art and movement that is more aligned with the workings of my spirit.
