    I really enjoyed this :3 Yeah ballet is difficult but it's worth the effort and you made a lot of progress lol. Also :0 all those feelings that you experienced around dance, that's how it is and it's soooo hard and I commend you for being willing to do it. :0 It's a little wack that she didn't break in your shoes a little bit but I guess she needed them for later :P

    I do ballet and the basics aren’t too hard but you have to start younger when you are more flexible and are still growing

    I have been doing ballet for 13 out of my 16 years of life and it hurts to see that some uncultured swines on the streets think that it's SUPER EASY. I had a friend that teesed me that I don't have a talent and that pointes are easy. I decieded to change her way of thinking so I took her to the studio and showed her how hard it really is and she wanted to go en pointe. I gave her my pair and she regreted it so now when I say that I was on the rehearsal she just nodds and says that she doesn't know how can I make myself go through the pain. I like that kind of pain.

    I always been intrested in dance however this form of dance isn't in the tradition of my family so they'd be most likely think about of it as "weird" or "too fancy" but I really want to learn this form of dance....

    I quit ballet because we didnt have money for it, but mainly the teacher had told me that if I didnt practice, I wouldn't get my costume to perform in a recital. I had really, really bad asthma then. But I still showed up. I was very sick. Once I told mom what happened, and that i did practice, my mother was furious. I could have gotten seriously hurt. That and they never ordered my participation trophy. (To make a four year old think she isn't worthy or cared about isn't cool.) so we had to stop. But I did like it. Every Christmas we go to the nutcracker (if we can afford it). This video inspired me to look up tutorials to maybe get back into it

    As a ballerina who has been dancing since I was 3, her reaction to fourth position is my reaction every time I get in fourth position.

    I feel the need to say that learning advanced ballet in 6 weeks is not a great idea.

    I’m a former dancer and thank you for showing how hard ballet is, along with appreciating and respecting it! People don’t realize how hard it is. When I stopped dancing then tried it again after a year, not only had I gained a bunch of weight but I had lost a ton of my muscular strength to where I couldn’t do jumps that I was able to do repeatedly before. It really is a sport and ballerinas are probably even more disciplined than some athletes.

    thank you for showing how difficult dance really is. I have classmates telling me that anyone who puts on a tutu can dance gracefully and it annoys me so much.

    You did amazing for 6 weeks! I've been dancing since I was two just like your teacher, and it's absolutely amazing that ballet is becoming more popular! It is very difficult, but it expresses people so much and it just gives you amazing strength and grace. You did absolutely amazing! Great job!

    I love this because I’m in ballet myself and started when I just turned 3 and now I’m twelve and yes ballet is hard but it takes so much work and practice. To me the most annoying thing is kids at school saying they were on pointe at the age of 4, which is not possible. I really loved the video, good work 💕

    You did fantastic, all that in 6 weeks. Ballet takes years of dedication and hard hard work. You should be proud of yourself.
