Ballet at 40 (portraits of a rookie)

"So when are we gonna see photos of you in ballet class?" my best friend asked when I first told her about my Ballet at 40 series. "I want to see you in your leotard!"

OK, loves. Here you go. 

Me in all my spandex and lycra glory. 


A big THANK YOU to the wonderful and talented Hilary Bovay for capturing images of this wanna-be ballerina. And a shout-out to Cleveland City Dance and my ballet instructor, Julia Galletta, for letting me stay after class and doing extra barre exercises with me.
