trying to be a dancer...

These are a few pictures of me in my new leotard - part of me still wants to be a dancer as you can see! I take about 3 ballet classes a week (at Koresh and Gwendolyn Bye Dance Center), the majority of which are on pointe. I feel that the artistic expression and physical demands of ballet make it an important source of my well-being (even though it may not always make me feel physically happy ;-)). But I do like the challenges, and there are moments, like yesterday, when you have a small breakthrough, when you suddenly can do a double tour on pointe for example. I hope that next week, during the Society for Neuroscience conference in Washington DC I will be able to take a class at the Washington Ballet School.
