Hello folks, today I want to talk about ballet. Why? because it came up today during a very enjoyable session. He was asking me about how I realized I was into this sort of this, so of course I talked first of my early life where I read (and secretly enjoyed with much guilt) Enid Blyton and Roald Dahl. He, however, also knew that I had previously been to Ballet School and had a short Ballet career. He gave me something to think on, that I have thought about before but maybe not enough. Ballet. So much pleasure where is the pain?
There is no career or job that can exceed dance. I loved it so much, had so much passion for it. Nothing can better it, so I do not attempt to try. That would cause far too much heart-ache. BUT, ballet has clearly changed me, and moulded me into what I am now. Actually I think Ballet did much more than simply give me discipline in life. As I have already said. So much pleasure where is the pain? Training for ballet is very painful, extremely painful. And when you train, you go through puberty, if you start Ballet school as most girls do at 11. I personally wonder if going through all that pain at a time when I was changing from a girl to a young woman has altered my sexual interests, even though I was hard wired that way. what I mean is, and what I ask myself is, would I have discovered myself and my sexuality so young if the catalyst of Ballet training had not happened? I guess I will never know....but it still fun to ask... Thoughts anyone? Anyone got any similar experiences?
