People I write about

Since a few people follow my blog now (thank you!), I thought I’d make a list of people I write about. It must be confusing to have all those names and not know who they are. Will be updated if necessary

Family:

Mother, Mama or Mam

Father, Papa or Dad

Sisters: Dinah and Sissy (younger)

Dinah is quite shy and very thin. She doesn’t want to see me at the moment.

Sissy is the youngest, generous and outgoing.

Dog: Tippy, a grey poodle

Cat: Gina, my ginger tabby cat.

Boyfriend: Tom ❤

Former Friends:

Charlene: My sort-of best friend, but now we drift apart. I changed. I haven’t been in contact with her for years.

Marie: My other so-called friend. We hardly see each other. Very different from me. No contact for years.

Ballet classmates and friends:

June: Sweet, ambitious, working to be a professional dancer. Used to be Mandy’s protégé. She’s my best friend now.

Melina: From Franca’s school. Very sweet and friendly with me. Loves ballet, but lacks confidence. My second-best friend.

Smiley: Young. Flexible legs and natural jump. Always smiles. Friendly. Fan of GFT.

Goody-pointe-shoes or GPS: Very smug. I used to hate her, but now I don’t and we’re ‘friendly’.

Cool Blonde: Beautiful, thin, great posture and good technique. Friendly. Doesn’t take the same classes with me anymore.

Russian Girl: Nice body and talent for tours piqués. Sense of humour. Hardly ever comes to class now.

Bunny: Tiny sprightly know-it-all. Friendly. Likes classes that are too hard. I haven’t seen her for years.

Teresa: Very friendly, talks a lot. Has cancer, unfortunately. ETA: She died recently. She was only 23.

Tina: From Franca’s school. Used to be obese as well. It connects us.

Ballet teachers:

Franca: My ‘main’ teacher. Classes good, slow and methodical, but she’s not strict enough. Hardly ever praises. 2-3 times a week.

Belinda: Saturday mornings. Ex-pro and choreographer, good and rather strict teacher. Believes in me.

Mandy:  Gives useful corrections. Rather fast class. Demanding but can be charming. Often acts childish. 1-3 times a week.

Rosanna: Saturday afternoons. Ex-pro, very motivating and demanding. I don’t take her class at the moment.

Sika: At AS where classes are free, but with too many people. Ok. Friday evenings.

Samantha: Wonderful, advanced dancer. Sometimes classmate, sometimes substitute teacher for Mandy.

Cliché Ballet Teacher CBT: Hungarian ex-prima ballerina, very motivating, demanding. Deep voice and speaks many languages. Substitutes for Belinda.

Gorgeous French Teacher GFT: Ex-pro, legs to her ears, perfect body, with gorgeous way of moving. Very strict. Very good corrections. Substitutes for Belinda. And recently Sunday morning classes.

Summer Course Teacher: Fast class, great energy and sense of humour, teaches the week-long summer course which I took in 2012 and 2013.

 

Co-workers:

Judy: Superior. Nice, works a lot. Can be insensitive.

Sandy: Very nice, a little insecure below the surface, a little lonely. She left.

Others:

Mrs. H: Movement analyst/sort of a therapist. Helped me LOTS. I’ve been going to her for years.
