The Ballet Studio

Original painting of dancers in a ballet studio decorated with flowers.

Story: The studio is a simple room, nondescript but for its barres and mirrors. It's perfect for class, utilitarian and devoid of distractions, designed for those who want only to study ballet. In this room we have become strong and flexible. Here we have mastered steps and learned about grace and beautiful lines. And this room has kept us single-minded and determined and dedicated and resolute. Before class, we usually fill the studio with clashing colours and loud voices: we wear leotards and wrap-around tops and leggings, and we exchange friendly greetings and snippets of gossip and little bits of news. But today we wear pastel-coloured tutus of satin and tulle, and we talk in whispers, discussing only the few hours ahead of us. The room is festooned with garlands of flowers, and it is distinctive and memorable. In this studio we became ballerinas. Now this studio becomes our stage.
