At the start of each new year, it’s customary to reflect on the past and resolve to make changes for the future. New Year’s resolutions are usually somewhat profound as we all strive to better ourselves in some way, shape, or form!
We asked a few dancers to share their resolutions with us and “suggested” that ballet themed resolutions would be a nice focus. Overall, the dancers who responded did keep to that topic, with one exception! Read on to see what they had to say …
(in alpha order)
Brette Benedict said: “One dance resolution I have this year is to really push my boundaries and see how much futher I can go technically (more turns, higher jump, higher extensions) as well as artistically (exploring strength as well as fluidity and motion). Really specific, I know!”
Courtney Catalana said: “One of my resolutions is to stretch more and take the time to take care of my muscles!!!”
And lastly Jessica Tretter said: “I would like to hone my knife throwing skills because archery is tough to pick up and knife throwing will come in handy if I’m ever in the Hunger Games. Or, learn to play the guitar.”
There you have it – words of wisdom from some of our dancers. We don’t have any ballets planned that include knife throwing but it’s nice to know that if we do – Jessie will be ready!
Happy New Year everyone!
