AESCB ALUMNI SERIES:
Batch 2012 .
. “I started ballet at the age of 10. Some would say that it’s a bit late already. But looking back, it made me realize that it’s never too late to start doing something you like. You have to start at the bottom and work your way up. There are no shortcuts. Like in ron de jambe, front-side-back (should be directly to the back) before closing in a position. You have to pass through everything.
Ballet involves discipline and perseverance. Because ballet entails a lot of hard work, falling, failures, crying, disappointments and frustrations. It challenges you. I learned to not be too harsh on myself, and to be open for improvements. But when you fall, you stand up and try again. This made me have the confidence I need and made me believe in myself that I can do it. Also, it made me realize to always find joy in what I do, even if I’m having a hard time. Have fun and enjoy every moment with your friends – in class, in rehearsals, on or off stage. Make new experiences and grab opportunities.
Even though I did ballet for only 7 years, I’m thankful I was able to experience performing locally & internationally. To be honest, I miss ballet. I still try to do ballet poses for pictures because it’s part of my life. But my major take away from dancing ballet is that I get to appreciate more the artistic side in ballet or in any theatrical shows. Because I know how much time, planning, and hard work were put together in order to have a great show for the audience.” #AESCBallerina #AESCBFamily
