Master Class with Allison DeBona

OMG. Guys.

I get to meet AND dance with Allison DeBona. She’s a real ballerina. She is a demi-soloist with Ballet West and stars in the CW’s show, Breaking Pointe, which is coming out with season 2 this summer! I originally wrote about her coming to Cleveland here. Ballet in Cleveland is bringing her to Cleveland this weekend for a master class taught by Allison. So exciting! I didn’t think I was going to be able to go, but thankfully the lovely Jessica Wallis who runs Ballet in Cleveland, made it possible for me to attend. I’m so excited. I absolutely love the show Breaking Pointe, and cannot wait for it to return this summer. I’m also very excited to meet Allison and ask her any questions I may have. The master class I’ll be taking is 1.5 hours followed by a 30 minute Q&A session with Allison. Other than my own ballet instructor, I’ve never met a professional ballerina, let alone dance with one! I’m really nervous for the class. It’s for children ages 13-18+ and any college aged students. I have a feeling I will be the only adult there, besides Jessica. And I think I’m ok with that. I have no idea what to expect in class. I’m hoping I can maintain!! This is just such an amazing opportunity, I can’t pass it up. And if I end up being the “worst” there because of my age and skill level, then that’s ok. I’ll never see any of these girls again. Or, for all I know I will be just as good as them and blow them away that an “old” person can dance too. I’m hoping for the latter. Hah! Either way I think it will be fun. I’ll be sure to follow up with my experience and post any pictures I may be able to take. Yay!! 🙂
