Since I was a teenager there was also one consistent passion I love: Dance.

I missed dance camp in 2012, by the time I decided to go, the camp I usually go to was sold out. I worried about the financial cost, especially after doing a $3500 photography workshop.

So it's been 2 years since I went to camp, and going back reminded me how desperately I love dance. Many times during the past two years, when I had an opportunity to go to dance class, I chose instead to stay home. For something I love so much, I sure spend a lot of time avoiding it.

I love dance more then I love photography. And yet I've spent so much more money on photography then dance. Not just for business stuff, but also I've traveled so much for photography lately, which is all nice and good, but in the end I just need a reminder of where my heart lies.

I would open up a dance studio in a heartbeat if I knew it could be profitable. But dance isn't one of those passions that make money.

Maybe a dance/improv studio :-) So it can lose money twice as fast. Hahaha.

Ballet Talk
Hi Ripresa! I tried to contact you through BT4D but realized that you actually don't post there anymore. I still frequent the board when I can - congratulations on going to Sun King Adult Dance Camp in Richmond! I've always wanted to but never had the time or cash to do it.

Are you still in Austin area? I'll be visiting and would love to do a ballet meet-up and take an open class with you. You're probably super advanced compared to me (I haven't danced in a while, no classes where I live). Let me know if you'd be interested! I'd love to meet another BT4D poster in class.

Re: Ballet Talk

Yes, definitely let's meet up!

You can send me your email through my work website: http://nadinestudio.com/

I'm not that advanced :) It takes decades to be an advanced dancer yeah! I'm just still intermediate.

I should go back to ballet talk, but I have been fortunate to meet so many other ballet dancers in other places so I don't talk there much. It's too anonymous!
