Day 8 YAGP NY Finals 2015 and my weekend.
On Saturday is was really nice outside. It was in the 80’s. Melissa, Emily and I went to tan at the park. Well I didn’t get very tan… (what else is new) oh well haha! My mom calls the paleness a studio tan. It was still nice to be outside.
On Sunday I went to go take Mr. Ellison’s 12:30 pm class at Steps. It wasn’t too crowded since most of the YAGP crowd was gone. Theo and Juliette were also there. It was nice to be able to take a class from Mr. E while I was in NY. After class I waited to say goodbye to him. =( As usual, I didn’t want to leave.
I walked to steps because it was nice out, not as warm as Saturday, but still nice. The trees were starting to bloom!

My flight was at 6am Monday morning so I attempted to go to bed at a decent hour but since I was staying with friends that was hard to do. I ended up going to sleep a little after 12. I set about a million alarms for around 3am. I eventually got up and got ready to leave around 4am. At around 4 I headed downstairs to grab a taxi. I walked up to the busier avenue and there were a few taxis that went by before I got there. I then crossed the street and saw some lights a couple of blocks down, hoping for a taxi to come by. I was lucky and got a taxi pretty quickly. I ended up getting to the airport decently early because there was no traffic. I think I got there around 4:30am or so. Once I arrived I checked my bags and headed through security. Once through security I headed towards my gate and grabbed some coffee and food along the way. I took a window seat on the flight since it wasn’t too long and I wanted to try and sleep. Once I landed in Chicago I made my way to my gate. (This airport was huge! I think it was Midway). My layover was about an hour . I loved being in NYC but it was great to get home. I’m already excited to return in June for my summer intensive with American Ballet Theatre. But before that I will be performing in Ballet Arte’s production of Swan Lake. I will blog about the final rehearsals and the shows. I will be performing Odette and Odile ! Thank you for reading!
