Tulle and me.

15 Jan

I want to take ballet lessons, and have been looking into class options in Seattle.

It would be the first time I’ve taken a dance class since I was a kid, but I’ve been inspired by the Seattle dance scene and also after seeing the Trey McIntyre Project at Bumbershoot in the fall.  The female dancers had amazing bodies and legs and I was mesmerized by the movement, dance and music.  Love the collaboration with The Shins, too.

I’ve felt the same inspiration after seeing the Pacific Northwest Ballet and, subsequently, Whim W’him.  So … onward in 2012 to some ballet lessons.  I’ve found two studios in Seattle that are near work/ home and offer lessons for adults – one in the U District (The Ballet Studio) and another in Green Lake (eXit SPACE).
