Tea Time: Inspiration + Motivation
Posted: Sep 16 2014
Ballet is hard. There are so many days out of the year where we just want to give up. Is it worth it? Can I even do it? Those are the things that cross our mind. Unfortunately, with ballet, there is no shortcut. The only way to get better is to train hours after hours. It's times like these when I think of Misty Copeland's Under Armour campaign--I will what I want. If you haven't seen it yet, the video is below.
Wow. What a powerful video. It proves that as long as you are determined, anything is possible. Just look at Misty, who is an amazing soloist at one of the best ballet companies in the world. She even danced the roles of Odette/Odile in Swan Lake with ABT on their tour in Australia. How amazing is that. When you feel down in the dumps, just think of Misty and how hard she has worked. But more importantly, how far she has come.
You CAN do it.
Disclaimer: Yes, we know that Misty was featured in #sassysaturday last week, but she's too awesome to not post twice. She has given ballet a chance, an opportunity to be discovered by those would never even think of watching or doing ballet. She gives people hope and is a beacon of inspiration. <3 #welovemisty
