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.
Did you all know it’s possible to break your nails while sewing?
I’ve been working on trying to fix my pointe shoes for Nutcracker. I’ve smashed the box in a door jam (it worked), I’ve pulled out my original original, main elastic and sewed on a shorter, tighter strip of elastic, and I sewed two more criss-crossed elastics towards the front. It seems to help some, but now my toe pads don’t fit in there anymore so I can’t use those now. Tomorrow I am going to try soaking the heel in water before I dance in them so maybe it will mold to my foot and stop slipping completely?
