I think it's because of Ballet Alert that...
I get up early every morning to see what the very latest is!
Posted 08 October 2003 - 04:12 AM
...that I have the "inside scoop" on what's going on in the world of dance.
...that I have a place to ask questions, to celebrate, to look forward to what might be ahead for my dancing daughter.
...that my posts have access to some of the best smilies around!
Thanks, Ballet Alert.

Ballet Alert is an invaluable part of my day. Thank you again! I cannot say it enough.
BTW: it also helps to keep me a bit more conscience of typing, spelling, grammar and expressivity in my language. I know I make a lot of mistakes, but before BA I was regressing terribly in this area! :shhh:

....I have Ari to sort out the international press for me. Love those links!
....I keep in cyber contact with some of the gang from the old AOL/NYT dance chat, whose poster girl was the divine Miss Victoria Leigh.
....I have, I hope, a built-in readership for my DanceViewTimes pieces. (That means you, Ed Waffle!)
....Alexandra should be given a MacArthur grant.

Whenever I have a spare moment, I run to my computer to see if there are any new posts yet.
I no longer subscribe to Dance Magazine, but I still have all the latest in the dance world.
When I talk to my friends on AIM, I keep wondering where all the good smilies are :shrug:
I have a very hard time resisting the urge to get back out of bed and post my latest ideas on the anatomy of whatever step(s) or concept(s) we're discussing in Teachers.
If I have a question, I can ask some of the most knowledgeable people in the dance world about it.
I have learned more about ballet than I ever would have in any school.

....that I've had the privilege of meeting, both on-line and in person, some fabulous people.

I started dancing and I'm still dancing now. If I hadn't met people like Xena and skippy in real life, I would never have kept going. And I never would have met them in the first place without this site.

I think it's because of Ballet Alert that...I realise how much I love ballet.
I think it's because of Ballet Alert that...I am in a continuing quest to find adult ballet classes no matter where in the world I am.
I think it's because of Ballet Alert that...I have such lovely friends such as LolaDoggy, Beckster, Mr Robin and Skippy (but i knew her before).
I think it's because of Ballet Alert that...I know I am not alone in my ambition as an adult ballet dancer to try and do better and to become the best I can, despite not having that 'ideal ballet body..'

I'm also a better parent because of Ballet Alert. I know this sounds strange, considering my son will have to wait at least another year or too before starting pre-ballet, but the advice I read on the parenting thread can be applied to any parenting situation and far surpasses anything - in depth, in honesty and in sincerity - you read in the 'proper' forums.

I think it's because of Ballet Alert that ... I still take ballet classes at all. Without the support of other adult ballet students here I might have not continued over all the frustrations, not realizing they are perfectly normal troubles...
I think it's because of Ballet Alert that ... I really appreciate the difficulties, dreams, triumphs and disappointments of pre-pro dance students and professional dancers, and respect even more the young dancers - also in my own school.

Plus most of the above.
