Ballerina? No. Dancer? Always.

One more post full of beautiful photos by Hristina Trajkoska. This time, I’m wearing my ballet shoes, so it won’t be a classical outfit post, but more of a ”thank you” post, dedicated to all those years of dancing. I’ve never really been good at most of the sports – I liked them, I just wasn’t s good as I wanted to be…I was never the athletic type I guess:). With dancing, it was so different – I loved it, I understood it, I was also quite good at it. So it was a sport that’s stayed me through all the years, it’s been the escape during the exams, it’s been the thing that makes a bad day good. My relationship to sports changed in the last years, as there was no pressure – I didn’t worry about the bad grade at volleyball, I didn’t feel pressured to run a kilometer in a few minutes. I just started doing the things I liked and I found out why was dancing so important to me – I never felt the pressure, I just did it. When I started, there were no grades, and when the time for the competitions and performances came, I didn’t care. I loved it. There were some nervous feelings, but they couldn’t stop me from doing what I love. I haven’t thought of dancing professionally since I was ten, but it’s more than a hobby. It’s just who I am.

Še ena objava s čudovitimi fotografijami Hristine Trajkoske. Ker imam obute moje baletne čeveljce, nisem napisala klasične modne objave. Ta objava je zahvala plesu in vsem letom, preživetim v plesnih studijih. Večina športov mi nikoli ni šla najbolje – bili so mi všeč, a preprosto, nisem bila dobra. S plesom je bilo drugače. Bil mi je všeč, razumela sem ga, pa še kar dobro mi je šlo in zato je ples ostal z mano skozi vsa leta, bil je pobeg med testi in izpiti, polepšal mi je slabe dni. V zadnjih letih pa se je spremenil tudi moj odnos do drugih športov, saj ni bilo več ocen in pritiska. Ni me skrbela ocena pri odbojki, koliko bom pretekla v nekaj minutah…preprosto sem se lotila športov, ki so mi bili všeč, ugotovila, da mi sploh ne grejo slabo, in odkrila tudi, zakaj je ples tako pomemben zame. Pri plesu nikoli nisem čutila pritiska. Na začetku ni bilo ocen, in tudi ko je prišel čas za nastope in tekmovanja, mi je bilo vseeno. Seveda sem kdaj bila živčna, a to ni spremenilo mojega odnosa do plesa, ni prineslo pritiska. Že od desetega leta dalje nisem pomislila, da bi se plesa lotila profesionalno, a je več, kot le hobi. Je del mene.
