  • I dance ballet and have done Four Little Swans, and they the fact that you were able to do it in technique shoes is more than impressive!!! Also to the community DO NOT try pointe shoes before you are ready to do so, I have permanent feet damage now from them. But Michelle, you did an incredible job and applaud you for the Ballet community!!! I would love to see a professional ice skater video too!!!

  • Did she actually break the pointe shoes in or just sew them? I’m so confused because her boxes still looked hard and her shoes were making a fair amount of noise. Great video though

  • I would hate to be a ballerina. I was in color guard and the little dance we did was terrible. The whole thing was terrible. It was terrible for my mental health. The instructor was extremely hard on all of us. I couldn’t take it. I would cry every other day at practice. I already had an eating disorder it just got worse. I started cutting. I don’t know I just if I had to do ballet I’d completely fall apart.

  • After doing ballet for 10 years and quitting about 4 years ago, I understand how difficult it is. Like sometimes I’ll see if I can still do an arabesque or pirouettes, and I can’t do them nearly as well as I used to. I’m completely amazing that you achieved this in 6 weeks! Like that’s honestly incredible and you should be so proud of yourself for what you achieved. Your Pas De Deus was absolutely beautiful and your little swan was amazing. You made all of your dances look easy and effortless and just absolutely incredible.

  • Being a ballet dancer myself, I’m so proud of how well you did! Ballet is really hard, and all the work you put in really shows! There’s so much to think about...squeeze your abs, pull up, shoulders back, ribs in, chin up, knees straight, toes pointed, use your plié, keep your arms fluid, smile, and use your artistry! And you went above and beyond and exceeded all expectations. P.S. Pas de deux is my favorite, too. 😊

  • Ballet is all well and good, but a real workout that doesn’t body shame is hula! I challenge you to try the ancient art form, story-telling, religion, community and language that is the Hawaiian hula!

  • The partner dance made me, like, tear up?? I could really feel the connection and it didn't feel like watching a newbie at their first recital, it looked like watching a married couple dance. It was incredible, Michelle. You are incredible.

  • I will say from personal experience that all the dances chosen for her are extremely hard. Normally these dances are for dancers with years of experience. She did amazing and it was beautiful. Grace like this would normally take years and it is amazing that she did this in weeks. She looked gorgeous and I love this channel, don’t give up ballet if you really enjoy it.

    Mrs. ScottMrs. ScottDay ago
  • Wow😍 I just found your channel and am now binging all these episodes❤️ The amount of effort and training you put in these is amazing, and I also love the fact that you really share so much. It's not just one lesson and the final performance, but your true feelings explained in between❤️

    Libby MorganLibby MorganDay ago
  • oh the sound of new pointe shoes is the best 😂

    Libby MorganLibby MorganDay ago
  • No, every dance style can tell a story, BUT contemporary/modern is what really focus on lyrics. Ballet in my eyes is not really that elegant individually, since the moves and the body parts looks... Quite uncomfortable, which they are! Ballet is such an underrated dance. It has much more discipline that people don't understand. It's tough, demanding and requires A LOT of strength and often also flexibility. It's beautiful, no matter what you say. To people saying that you can't like such an "elegant" dance style when you're this "bad type" dancer, I'm just gonna say... *I'm a hip hop, girly commercial and modern dancer*

    Mirinda GlaceMirinda GlaceDay ago
  • I have been training as a ballerina since i was 2 and i am 11. It is hard but most people think it is easy and she should not be on point until she has been danceing for 2 years

  • Woah! You should NOT ever be put into point shoes immediately. You need a LOT of training for that. At least a few months. It could really damage your feet and knees.

  • She needs to tuck her ass in, point her feet, more core strength and needs to “pull up” , turn out from the hip more, otherwise she looks like a dancing potato.

  • She's like, "You should try it!" I'm sitting in the splits, sewing my pointe shoes for class tomorrow. I love her commitment, as part of the ballet community, I really appreciate her commitment to do her best though she lacks training.

  • Don't care too much about what others think, truth is, no one really cares about anyone else besides themselves. So no one would really care if you messed unless you're on broadway or something

    Luna HatwayLuna HatwayDay ago
  • You touched on so many things that resonated with my own experience of ballet- the idea that perfection is what is valued, so if you can't be perfect you shouldn't try to do it at all, etc. I had just finished a pretty intense year of beginning adult ballet and was feeling really good about my body and my athleticism when I got sick with an illness that made it hard to dress myself, let alone dance. I really mourned that person. I lost all my muscle tone, my cardiac and respiratory health, my joint health...and now that I'm healthy again I'm not sure if I can/ if I want to go back to that. When it comes to ballet, it often feels as though its not possible to do things by halves or to get into it "just a little".
