Hi my name is Lydia, and this blog is about my journey through Ballet.

I’ve been taking ballet for around 7 years, following an eight year career of being a competitive swimmer.  However, I hadn’t seriously thought about a career in ballet until about two years ago. As I started to think about ballet in a professional sense, my family decided to audition me for the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA). I was accepted, so we packed our bags and moved to North Carolina!


Now, after one year at the school, I want to pursue ballet more than ever. There’s lots of competition, and it takes a lot (through good and through bad), to advance in the ballet world.
