the number of selfies I took that day

is too damn high

but I just wanted to announce that THE PICTURES FROM THIS SHOOT ARE THE FIRST ONES I’VE TAKEN POST-HIP SURGERY (which was back in March)

In late March, I still wasn’t able to put my own shoes on. In April, I was just starting to walk again. In late June, I could only handle a 90 degree first position, and I couldn’t lift my leg at all (not even to passé). By the end of July, I could stand in most positions (with mediocre turn out and much pain), lift my leg to 45 degrees, and I could do most things lightly except for big jumps. In late August, I started studio company at colorado ballet and it was my first day there that I tried to do grand allegro. In October, I performed as a peasant and a wili in all casts of the company’s Giselle. Now it’s November and I can lift it to just above 90 to the front and to a proficient height to the side, I’ve regained a lot of my flexibility, and while I still don’t have my maximum jump back yet, I can still hit a split in my grand pas de chat (even if it isn’t that high).

It’s been such a journey and sometimes I get frustrated but then I think back to how far I’ve come and I’m damn proud. In March I couldn’t put my own shoes on and now I’m dancing with a professional company. Life has many obstacles and sometimes a serious injury can feel like the end of the world but there is always a way. I just wanted to share that with you guys.

ok continue blogging friends I love you all

gnarly acro yoga while balancing on clubs, impressive 

Holy wait what the almighty shit

Wait what the fuck?

the first comment is what this is, the second comments are what is actually happening. For you non-circus people to have some perspective, this is fucking absurd.
