The happenings of this Disney-obsessed runner and dancer!

Who I Am

Hello! I’m Ashley, or disneyballerina, and I am a twenty-something who loves life!! I have 3 cats, a dog, and oh ya- a husband! I work full time as a Nanny and my husband is a dentist! In my spare time I live and love all things Disney- from reading about it to visiting there! I take ballet and pointe classes at a local studio about 6 hours a week. I danced for 10 years when I was younger and finally decided to get back into it. I love it! And when I’m not researching crazy Disney facts or pirouetting around the living room, I like to take pictures of just about anything. I got one of those “super fancy cool cameras” and have began acquiring different types of lenses.

I hope sharing my life and the experiences I have will inspire other people to pursue what they love.

    • Thanks!! It’s always fun finding new people interested in ballet and Disney!! You should also check out my friend, The Legal Ballerina, here on WordPress. She’s in her 30’s and also doing ballet and pointe for the first time in her life!!! πŸ™‚

  3. I just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for a Liebster Blog Award. That’s right; I think your blog is awesome. Now you have some work to do. Check out my blog post.

  5. Maybe boring for you but still: I am nominating you for a Liebster Award! Check my blog post to read all about it…

  6. Hello I just found your blog and I’m obsessed. I live in Orlando and cannot find an adult pointe class. Since I assume you are in close proximity to Disney, where do you take class?

    • I’m glad you found my blog but sadly I do not live in the Orlando area. Although I really wish I did!!! I actually live in Ohio. My best advice to you is to look up studios close to you and then either call them or just stop in and talk to someone. Explain to them that you are an adult interested in ballet and pointe and can they offer you any classes. I take ballet and pointe classes with teenagers and one other adult! You never know unless you ask πŸ™‚ Some studios don’t mind having an adult in class, but more stricter, pre-professional schools may not allow it. I hope you can find something!! πŸ™‚

  7. Hey, I just found your blog when I was looking for blog reviews about the Towpath Half. I can’t believe I found another Cleveland runner who’s obsessed with Disney like me! Very very cool!

  8. I’m thinking about the Christmas Story 5K and I’m doing the Disney World Half in January. You?

  9. Nominated you for the Sunshine Award! You are one of the rays of sunlight in my blogging community πŸ˜‰

  10. I LOVE the name of this blog and you seem very cool… Ballet/Running/Disney = my kind of human!
