Ballet is hard and stuff

So this girl went to her first rehearsal for Les Sylphides on Friday and the day after she found this super nice thing:

These are my knees, yeah. Nice bruises, huh? And they hurt, in case you're wondering.

Lovely, innit?!
Nice to know that pink tights cover everything up, because if I get three bruises after each rehearsal, I won't have acceptable legs to dance with in January.

Keep dancing, anyway!


  1. ufff vaya heridas de guerra! pero como te las has hecho? ten cuidadin Nerea :)

  2. @Polly Juajua, es lo que tiene el ballet neoclásico... un segundo estás de pie y al segundo siguiente tienes que ponerte de rodillas o arrastrarte por el suelo. Durante los ensayos me di cuenta de que me estaba haciendo daño al caer de rodillas, pero tampoco pensé que fuera a pasar esto, xD.
    Me están dando ganas de comprarme unas rodilleras!

  3. @Hannah Haha right? They can't say I don't give all I got! =)

  4. It's so familiar to me... But if you do ballet, you have to forget about pain or unpleasant sensations. So these bruises are everyday occurrence.=)
    You're on the right track. I heartily wish you to fulfil your dream. Maybe you'll do the thing I can't...
