And so tomorrow it all begins. It's the start of another season with The San Diego Ballet Company. It is always intense and grueling,therefore, explaining my high anxiety at the moment, LOL! But really, the career of a ballerina is very demanding but even more rewarding when all is said and done. I am truly looking forward to getting back in the life I love, the world I knew since the time I was three years old. The stage seems to be like home to me and I must admit I am most at ease performing in front of 2,000 people. Perhaps the stage is my little sanctuary.
It will be a bit of a juggle. From tutus to tools as I like to put it. But busy is better than bored! Besides, not too many ballerinas can say they are President of a tool company ;) I feel very fortunate to have gotten where I am today and for the greater success to come. Which is all great news, since I just received the schedule for this week of rehearsals :/ I dance seven hours six days a week not including performance days. Usually it's a two show day. It will be a great season starting with Romeo and Juliet!
In preperation for tomorrow's big day, this morning I first had a photoshoot, CHECK. Then I had a load of tights to wash, CHECK. After that I had four pairs of pointe shoes to sew, CHECK. Then I had to grocery shop for healthy, on the go snacks, CHECK. Well next I headed to the warehouse, had quite a few tools to package and ship out. ( Which took a few trips due to the size of my Saturn). CHECK. By that point I looked at the time as the clock striked 12 noon. Amazing how a day can be so fast and so slow all at once. And here I am now, relaxing with a glass of wine, cooking dinner, sharing my anticipations with you........ and loving every minute of past, present, and future. I'm sure I will be sharing how class and rehearsals are going in the near future. Wish me luck, btw in the ballet we say Merde.
