I love ballet so much .I love everything about it ,the music ,the moves ,the energy. I guess I'm obsessed with ballet ,so I did a little interview online with real ballet dancers ,some of them were so open with their answers and some of them thought I'm a creepy girl who's stalking them haha.
Q. What dancers do while they're waiting before performing? I mean I always see them fixing their shoes so what else you guys do?
Taylor: usually nothing special.. stretch, talk, laugh, uhh and if its me, its probably eat food. hahaha
Miranda: stretch , crack jokes, be crazy, get pumped! just whatever haha
Kristie: um...a lot of things. once you get ready with hair and makeup and costume, it usually is all about stretching. stretching and jumping up and down basically haha
Jesse: Stretch, joke, argue, and if u like the dance you might take a couple min or sec to find ur inspiration for that particular piece.
Q.What's in your dance bag??
Taylor: ballet shoes, hair ties, socks, Neosporin
Miranda: haha just a bunch of dance shoes... and tums :)
Kristie: hmm depends what kind of rehearsal I'm going to but generally...water, water, and more water. if I know exactly what I will be rehearsing, I can just bring my huge Marc Jacobs I always have but stuff it with a pair of socks so my feet won't get ripped up, band aids (because they usually do get ripped up), and my Free City sweats to warm up in. if I am just going to class, I usually bring my heels, combat boots, ballet slippers, and tap shoes too just in case i see something else I am interested in also. in NYC you never know what will pop up!
Jesse: shoes.....haha , although we can dance barefoot, but you can't tap without tap shoes, and it's easier to turn with jazz or ballet shoes for some, but I'm a boy so I don't need as much shoes as girls do, I only have jazz, tap, and ballet shoes ....
Q.When was the last time you ate till you can't breath?
Taylor: hahaha like today probs
Miranda: Like yesterday! haha. I always eat too much.
Kristie: haha um...I think a few weekends ago when I went to Kitchette with my friends. I got A LOT of food AND dessert and was stuffed :)
Jesse: Yesterday.... My Sister's bday Party
