In My Own Words In this installment of In My Own Words,Haley Breslin recounts competing in the National Ballet Competition in Wilmington, Delaware.
The National Ballet Competition was the first competition I have ever been to. It started on Friday, we had a warm-up class at 9:00 and then we could do whatever we wanted until we compete. I competed at 1:00. I was in the third group to perform. Everyone did their classical ballet variations first.
I was performing Princess Florine variation. After everyone in my group danced, we started the contemporary pieces. I was the second to last one to go and I was really nervous because no one has seen this dance before and it was really difficult.
I was relieved when it was all over. I got to watch everyone else dance for the rest of the day. Next, on Saturday we took master classes from the judges. My class was taught by Peter Merz the academy director of Ballet West. It was so fun and I learned a lot.
