About Me

My name is Molly, and I am a teenager living the “double life” as a high school student and a ballet dancer. I love everything about ballet, and I hope to share this with you – whether you are a young ballet student, a parent, or a dancer- and to pass on any words of wisdom I can. When I first started dancing, my mom and I always wished we had a ballet “manual.” Hopefully, I can pass on my many years of experience of the ballet world with you and serve as your very own guide. Feel free to comment with questions because I always need some inspiration for a new post!

  1. Molly, I love you site…All the helpful hair hints are great, particularly for those of us who are on the go (and have long hair)…I facilitate two dance movement classes a day, so your tips are a greatly appreciated…much love an success…

    • Hi Mary! Sorry this is a few month late, so I don’t know if this will help but…

      I understand where you’re coming from. We’ve all felt a little forgotten at one point or another. During my eighth grade and freshman years especially, I was often given understudy roles rather than actually being cast in the piece. What I’ve learned, however, is to put all of your effort in the role you are given (I especially learned that when two of the girls I was understudying became injured!).

      I try not to focus on the size of the role compared to the ballet, but how this role is different and unique from any other role I’ve done in the past. You obviously cannot change the casting once it is out, so the best and most positive thing you can do is to put your all into what you’ve been given and improve so that maybe you can get a bigger role in the next performance.

      Best wishes,
      Molly

  2. Thank you so much on the article about fractured feet! My foot is fractured now, I have a competition coming up I need to heel for, I also have a Debbie Allen audition at the Kennedy Center coming out soon that I need to heel for. I’m 10 so I hope my foot heels fast! Thanks for the tips! 🙂
    xoxo
