Don't Give Up Dancing

For the past few weeks people have been telling me that I should go back to dancing. I’ve had interventions at work and in class about how I should pursue it again and not give up on it. They tell me if it’s my passion I should go back to it and that my eyes light up whenever I talk about ballet. They say not to be scared and I'm going to regret it when I get too old to go back to it. I know they are right but I’ve been too scared and it costs a lot of money. After so many people telling me and encouraging me I have started to consider it. The other day when I was presenting my blog to my online media and blog class everyone was practically yelling at me to do it and giving me so much support, and I guess that was the last straw for me.

I started to think seriously about it and even looked up some ballet schools. I also talked to my parents to see if they would help financially, since I am a broke college student and need someone to sponsor me for funding. While looking I started to get excited which was mixed with anxiety and skepticism of course. I emailed this one place and told them my story in a nutshell to see if they could give me some advice. Now I’m just waiting to hear back from them and ponder this decision a little more. It is going to be a big step for me and I’m kinda scared, but I guess well see what happens…
