Just the musings of a small-town professional ballerina, business owner, wife, and beagle mama as she attempts to make it through this thing called life.

the weekly inspiration

If you follow me on Facebook (and you definitely should if you don't!) then you know I share a fair amount of videos featuring Adiarys Almeida. I can say without reservation that she is one of my favorite dancers if not my absolute favorite. With a superhuman ability to crank out a few extra rotations or hold that balance moments longer, she is a star in every way.

Back in January of 2014, I was so privileged to have the opportunity to interview this gem.

 (check it out!)

Today I'd like to provide for you a little weekly inspiration. Something to remind us all why we do what we do and why we relentlessly work towards perfection.

Maine State Ballet will be performing Sleeping Beauty in the spring of 2016 and I'd be lying if I said my head hasn't already turned in that direction. However, that is the case largely because of this jaw-dropping video. I know you'll be as amazed as I was.

Guys... She doesn't even use the last two partners because she balanced too long... Talk about being on your leg.

Perhaps you want to see some turns? Well, you're in luck! Because Adiarys has them in spades. Below is a video snagged off of Miko Fogarty's Facebook page.

How?... Just how, I ask you?

Let's finish it off with a montage.

Happy viewing, readers!
