I just finished doing 2 private lessons of ballet with 2 of the best teachers in the world and watching Swan Lake the ballet. PROFFESSINAL! My favorite part was when I learned part of the dance of Swan Lake in my class with Miss Victoria. Miss Louisa in Moscow was very nice and I hug her a milllion times when I left. I hugged Miss Victoria a million times too. Miss Louisa’s studio was a little slippery on the floor but Miss Victoria’s Studio was the same as my Ballet School at home but it was wood.
I was allowed to go backstage in St. Petersburg and watch the dancers do their warm-up. I also got a tiny private lesson with the teacher that taught the professionals. I got to see all the backstage and a dancer lifted me up doing an arabesque. I bent my leg up in the air and then he put me back down. It was so exciting when we were watching the ballet because it was professional and it was one of the most famous ballets in the world – Swan Lake. It was written by Peter Tchaikovsky and so was the Nutcracker and Sleeping Beauty. I do piano, so I was very interested in that but more interested in the ballet. It was one of the best experiences in my life!!!!
