Ok so we all know how a ballet studio is supposed to look right?
Floor-to-ceiling windows, arched,
Functioning piano in one corner,
Like this one or this one,
Well, Gentle Reader, here is some Cold, Hard, Mauve-And-Yellow Truth.
In the form of some photos of the room where I get my ballet on.
Please note: the mauve and yellow may look old and dingey, but that is fresh paint, bitches. Someone chose those colors. On purpose. Recently.
Also note the florescent lighting, linoleum floor patched with tape, and the small, square, non-arched windows with a view. Of the hallway.
Oh, and the tiny rectangular windows have, like, dark bamboo mini-blinds. Fancy!
Ok, but please also note: un-beautiful as this studio may be, I love it-
Because I get to do ballet in it.
Also, I saw Twitch Boss from So You Think You Can Dance there in the lobby one time.
Just as handsome and charming in real life, folks.
