I am Amanda, I am in the US, I am 17, I am a homeschooled senior, I am a Christian, and I am a dancer. I take Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, and Lyrical but I've also done Tap and am interested in Ballroom. I plan on majoring in dance and opening my own dance studio someday. I am also interested in photography, contortion, animals, singing, acting, musical theatre, fashion, modeling, and cosmetics. You'll mainly find dance, theatre, animal, and fashion posts here, but I'll blog about anything that holds my attention for more than 2 seconds. I love talking to people so feel free to message me and/or send me asks! I'll pretty much talk to anyone.
i believe in you. that’s why.

I smashed the boxes of my pointe shoes in a door jam last night because I thought that was what was causing my pointe shoes to pop off, but now the box is broken in and it bends when I am on demi pointe and my shoes are still not staying on. I am going to try criss crossing the elastics tonight, but if that doesn’t work I don’t know what else I can do.
You know, that one with the awesome loner female lead with a swell braid in her hair
The one who was associated with a certain element
And had an optimistic little sister she loved a lot
I especially loved the part where her dress transformed into a different
Oh, but let’s not forget the great male characters!
Like the sweet blonde guy
And the stern but handsome brunette
Yeah, it was such a great and unique film!
