Lately, I feel like Alice in Wonderland. What appears true in every day life is usually the opposite in BalletNerd’s beginner world. Let’s look at a few examples:
|Normal Every Day Existence||Ballet Beginner World|
|Fairly young at 29. Even called a young pup at work the other day.||Old – Not even older. Just old. I am more than double the age of some of my classmates.|
|Compared to most co-workers and friends I’m pretty skinny.||Chunk from the Goonies. I expect to be called upon to perform the truffle shuffle instead of the standard barre at any time in class.|
|Average height – Ok I will admit even in real life I’m considered tall, but I’ve been surrounded by so many other tall friends and relatives that I no longer notice.||Gulliver meets the Lilliputians – why is everyone so short??|
|Stronger, flexible, agile||Weak, inflexible, clumsy clodhopper|
Wonder how this will change over time???
