Ballet Boo-Yah!

So, the universe is telling me ballet classes are in my near future…

1. There was gorgeous ballet dancing at the opening ceremonies of the Olympics with not just one but two superstars of Russian ballet, who I adore, Svetlana Zahkaraova and Diana Vishneva.

2. Also, I found these pretty legwarmers at my local Dollar General for $2.50…yeah baby….Ballet Boo-Yah!  They even have nice turn out…

Ballet Boo-Yah!

 

So, all this MUST mean the universe is funneling me towards starting ballet classes, right?  Right.

Olympic Ballet

I know I am a few days late on this but if you caught the opening ceremonies of the Olympics in Sochi, Russia you saw the gorgeous ballet dancing that was center of the worlds stage.  I was awestruck by the beauty, grace, and artistry.  What a way to start off the athletic competitions!

Svetlana Zakharova was just effortless in this piece.  I loved the ballroom dancing as well!

I was floored when I saw who was dancing.  I could recognize those banana feet anywhere!

Diana Vishneva I thought really brought a lot of personality to the “Peace Dove” presentation.  At first, honestly thought it was a little weird.  I was like, “Are they jelly fish?  Look at the squishies!”  As it went on, I got into it and saw it differently.  It was really breathtaking!

Now excuse me while I will be glued to my TV for the next few weeks while the Olympics are on because I am an Olympic fanatic and I can’t get enough of almost any event!
