The Effort of Being Effortless

Inhale. 
Point my feet, lengthen my fingers, make sure that my knees are straight. 
Exhale. 
Flatten my back, engage my core, don't forget to look at the hands.
Listen. 
Go faster now, don't forget the "and," it's okay to smile, Hannah.
Ballet. 
They must never know the work that we do to make the effort look effortless. 

In honor of World Ballet Day on Thursday, I present you with some videos of yours truly warming up, putting on pointe shoes, and showing off some pointe work! 





Comment below what you learned about ballet today! And what are your weekend plans? I get to go to a concert! And I also prepared all week for a great post coming soon, but it must wait a bit longer, and you will understand why once I post it! And because it's way past my bedtime, farewell!
