Leap Ballerina, Leap

Remember that time we went to the Boston Ballet School and did a Destination Deck workout there?  It was LEAP DAY.  You know, the extra day in the year they throw on the calendar every 4 years so earth doesn’t fall out of orbit around the sun?

Remember that happened this morning?!? On this Leap Day we spent the morning leaping across the studio in tutus, and leaping up and down stairs in the Ballet School building.


Remember how much fun it was to have graceful arms and pointed toes? And how good it felt to wear puffy tutus and sparkly tiaras?  Remember what it was like to start the week with something like a ballet class at 6:15am when you didn’t even know that’s what you were showing up to?   Remember that there is no other fitness community like this? No other weird opportunity to do things like Leap Day at the Ballet. Remember that being a part of this Tribe is worth every single early morning, every beautiful sunrise, every snowy play-day, every sweat-soaked climb up a flight of stairs because this shit is good.  It’s fun, it’s hard, and it makes us fitter, better, and more connected and interesting human beings.  Sometimes we dance at the ballet, or take over the T, or generally keep surprising (and changing) our city with our positivity, kindness, and free free fitness. You know, we never stop exploring 😉

You just might remember today because it was a special one.  Keep showing up folks, they’re all special ones.  And you just never know what you’re going to get.


Auditions for the November Project Boston Dance Company will be held at 6:30am, next February 29th.
