Pointe Work

The smell of dust hangs in the air

It invades and tickles your nose simultaneously

Look up

Ascend the creaky stairs

Hear the music?

Wood floors envelop you like a Sahara desert

Bleached from sun beams through the glass window panes

Weathered and dull

Start again

Forget about yesterday’s pain

Step up to the barre

First

Second

Third

Raise your arms

Stretch until your fingertips feel the dust particles dancing in the air

Release

Plie

Releve

Repeat
