These aren't my normal outfit posts but I thought I would post a few pictures of me doing what I do best. (Or what I like to do the most, I should say.)
These are just a few poses from the dance that I did Saturday night (as well as our costume). I was so proud of my girls that I teach because they danced beautifully. I only did one dance and thought I would be sick after. (I'm WAY out of shape.) They did 4-5 dances and did them all with energy and beauty. I'm so proud of them.
After about fifteen tries, I finally got my grand jete to second. It was hard to capture the moment when both of my legs hit second position at the same time. As my husband showed me each shot he took, I would say, "You aren't taking the picture at the exact moment that my legs are up!" He responded with, "It's because your legs aren't going high enough." Oh. Whoops. So I huffed and puffed and got my 32 year old legs up. It wasn't easy.
You look amazing Amy - so impressive :)ReplyDelete
Your huffing and puffing proved to be worth it! Such grace and beauty! I love the pictures and you look radiant doing what you love! That's when all of us are at our best after all!ReplyDelete
Oh Amy I love these shots!!!!! I'm also a dancer and love everything related to ballet!! And yes you're right, jumping in grand jete like you've done is EXTREMELY difficult so CONGRATS honey!!ReplyDelete
Amazing pictures. You look great :) x angieReplyDelete
My goodness, that looks so difficult! =) Love the dress, though, haha!ReplyDelete
Beautiful! I just took a ballet class- my first dance class in about a decade! It's amazing how hard it was to get my body turned out, lol :) You look great!ReplyDelete
What great pictures! I'm jealous of your skills.ReplyDelete
I see a hole in your shoe. ;) Love it! I miss dancing...ReplyDelete
I had about 6 holes in my shoes in that picture! I got some black tape and taped them for the performance. I bought a new pair of jazz shoes and I will break them in over the summer. I had my old pair for over 10 years. They are SO perfect...minus the holes!Delete
wow, the last photo looks really great!!!ReplyDelete

You look gorgeous Amy and I can tell you are a disciplined dancer, so graceful! I cannot believe you are a year older than me...I thought you were in your late 20s! You can take comfort that many of my readers today confessed their addiction to F21 ;)ReplyDelete
