I'm Back Home

 I apologize for the lack of posts the last couple of weeks. We had recital, and then all of a sudden, time slipped away from me. Recital was amazing. That's pretty much all that I have to say about it. I think I danced well, we all had a great time, I made some new friends. Doesn't get much better.  If you are wondering which girl in the picture is me, I'm the one in the upper left corner who's hairpiece doesn't match most of the other girls.

Anyways, two days after recital, I started Summer Intensive at a ballet school about an hour away. I went 6 hours a day,  5 days a week, for 2 weeks. That just finished, and now the rest of my summer looks like this:

I go to the ballet school 2 hours a day on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Then on Tuesdays I drive from Ballet School back to my normal studio to assist Creative Movement. Then after ballet school on Thursdays I drive back to my normal studio to take Jazz. I have that schedule for the next 6 weeks. Then, the next week, we have our week-long Company Repetoire Camp, to start learning our Company numbers. Then we have company rehearsal twice a week for the next like 3 weeks. Then we get a one week break, then classes start again in the fall.

Well, I got to come back to my studio to assist Creative Movement for the first time since before recital. I missed my studio terribly while I was at intensive at the ballet school. I walked inside my studio's building, and sat down, and the director came over to me and said "Jasmine, would you mind grabbing a broom and sweeping the studio for me?" and my immediate thought was "Yep, I'm back home!" I love my studio, the teachers, the students, everything really.

I saw a quote on a plate once that said "Friends are the Family we choose ourselves." And for me, my whole studio is the family I chose myself. :)
