Let Me Just Tell You About My Teacher… A Birthday Note (Blogmas Day 21)

In the nearly 10 years I’ve been with Ms. Jana, we’ve been through a ton together. In our first studio at Lenore Smith’s, she got me my first role in the Moscow Ballet Nutcracker as a little snowflake. She then continued to teach me as we went all around town, literally dancing in places that include the street, closets, waiting rooms, on broken grocery store tiles in a disgusting dance studio on the east side of town, in the building right above Dagny’s, in a belly dancing studio next to a construction site, and finally, in her own backyard, where Gloria the Chicken used to sit in the window and watch ballet class. Yes, all of this has taken place, no over-exaggeration.

In those years, I watched her grow to be the teacher she is today, and she’s watched me grow from a teeny-tiny baby to the young dancer I’ve become. She finally convinced my Mom to put me in the Royal Academy of Dance Exams, and I started in Grade 3. I got my very first certificate with my very first distinction. That’s when I decided that this was what I wanted to do, and I’ve done it ever since.

Ms. Jana is not great because she’s gotten me five distinctions and two high merits. She’s not a great teacher because of her skill level, although both these things are part of it. She’s a great teacher because she will stand beside you every single day and build you up. When you’re feeling frustrated and you break down in the middle of class, she’ll get up and give you a hug. She’s a great teacher because she’ll walk with you to the end of your journey.

She tells me often that she believes in me, that she’s proud of me, that she often thinks about what will happen after my RAD journey is over. Well, now it’s my turn.

Ms. Jana, I believe in you. I always have, and I always will. I’ve always believed that you can help me fulfill my dreams of becoming a professional ballerina, and I still do. You’ve stood beside me for all these years in all my frustrations with dance and life and whatever else has happened. One day I may be in a company, and I’ll be doing something in class that will remind me of you. I’ll see something another teacher or dancer does, and I’ll think of you. I’ll be sitting in class with some amazing teacher and think, “Jana’s still the best.” Thank you for standing beside me, for continuing to stand beside me, in all the craziness of both our lives. Thank you for giving me the journey of a lifetime. I’m so proud of you, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Happy Birthday Ms. Jana. I hope it’s the best one you’ve ever had.

Love Your Most Faithful and Hard Working Student 😉

P.S. To my readers who are dancers, go and thank your teachers. You don’t have to give them a gift or a card or a gift card, but go up to them, look them in the eyes, and say thank you. It’s the least you can do for everything they do for you.

A Blogmas Special: Life On Pointe Episode 10 (Blogmas Day 18)

Sometimes, you break down in the middle of class. Honestly, it’s totally normal. This week, I didn’t get the best sleep, had period cramps, my calf had this weird pain, and my body wasn’t responding to what I needed it to do.

Ballet is no fairytale. It throws it’s punches, and you can either fight through it or it will crush you. Yes, I love ballet, but that doesn’t mean it’s always easy.

Thanks to the support of my teacher and my mom, I was able to continue and break through the pain and the exhaustion. If you don’t give up, you win.

I won.

GOD TALK: 5 THINGS I (CONSISTENLY) DO WHEN I SPEND TIME WITH GOD (Blogmas Day 16)

It’s very rare that I bring my time with God into a conversation. However, being a pastor’s daughter, it’s a question I get asked on a regular basis. It’s odd to me when people ask this question because it’s a surprisingly private thing for me to talk about. I know this is a bit different, but this is a part of my lifestyle, so here goes.

WORSHIP

Worship is absolutely key in my time with God, especially on the days where I feel He’s distant. It’s a great way to get into the mood of wanting to spend time with Him. Worship is my personal way of inviting Holy Spirit to come, and when His presence arrives, I begin to pray that He brings more. 

PRAYER

After inviting the presence of God into my room or wherever I’m spending time with Him, I like to pray a series of prayers. I pray for specific people/things who either have asked me to pray for them or I feel God is telling me to pray for them. I pray for myself, that I would have courage and boldness to walk out my destiny, and many other things. For me, a life without prayer is a life unfulfilled, and I want to make sure that I fulfill everything God has called me in my lifetime to do.

COFFEE TIME (BIBLE TIME)

This is normally the time I’ll walk outside my bedroom to go and grab a cup of coffee or tea or hot chocolate. I grab one big cup and say, “God, let’s chat over some coffee (or whatever drink).” To a lot of people, this sounds absolutely crazy but I promise you I’m not crazy. This is normal, and I get to define what’s normal in my life. Having chats about life with God and reading my bible and doing my devotional over coffee with Him is one of my favorite parts of my time with God. And let me tell you something: when I talk to God, He talks back with me.

GOING ON LITERAL WALKS WITH GOD

I’ve only just recently started doing this maybe a couple months ago, but I like spending time with God in the mornings. One of my favorite things to do with Him is to go outside and admire the sunrise. I know, it sounds dumb, but let me tell you, I marvel and am in awe and wonder of how God created such a beautiful thing for us to enjoy. Since it’s getting colder, I’ll put on my warmest outfit, go outside, and walk. I don’t just walk, I walk with God. It’s the most amazing and freeing feeling, and I can’t describe how amazing it is just to watch the sunrise. It’s so exciting, the anticipation of waiting for the light to come alive. It’s the most beautiful and amazing thing in the world. 

WRITING

Writing in my journals have been a thing I’ve done since I was six years old. It’s something I do every day, even if I only write one line. Sometimes, God will give me an idea for a story, and I’ll write it out. Sometimes, I’ll be reminded of a dream, and I’ll write it down. And other times, God will give me a revelation I don’t want to forget, so I’ll write it down. I also like to doodle in my journals. It gives it a little more life and personality, and I enjoy writing. I always have, and I hope I always will. 

I know this was a very different blog post, but I wanted to share it anyways. I hope you guys enjoy it, and I’ll see you soon!
