Hello, and welcome!

I am Hannah Holmes, a ballet student and enthusiast. I have been obsessed with ballet for fifteen years. Ballet is NEVER far from my mind.

I created Wonder of Ballet to encourage and inspire people all over the world who love ballet, because I believe that...

Ballet is for everybody (and every BODY!)

If you want to do ballet, then ballet is for YOU.

I firmly believe that any person who wants to try ballet should have the chance to do just that. No one is too out of shape or too uncoordinated to take ballet class. 

I want people all over the world to know that ballet can be an enriching addition to their life no matter how unorthodox it may seem at first.

Who, me? Do ballet? 

Yes, YOU!

Ballet is a uniquely beautiful art form and dancing it is uniquely satisfying, no matter who you are.

Let's bring adult ballet to every corner of the world!

I am on a mission.

I want adult ballet to go viral. 

Why? Because I want everyone to know beyond the shadow of a doubt that if they are wishing to dance ballet, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that!

It is perfectly natural to want to do ballet, because ballet is a wonderful thing.

If you are dreaming of taking ballet class and hoping to work your way up to tutus and pointe shoes, you are not alone in those desires. Ballet is art, and if it creates in you a sense of longing, then it is doing its job!

It's perfectly okay to long for ballet as an adult, and it is perfectly okay to go after it with all your heart.

"But aren't I too old to start ballet?" NO! It's never too late. 

It is never, ever, EVER too late to take your first ballet class.

And if you've danced before, it is never too late to return to ballet. Even if you took ballet five, ten, fifteen, twenty years ago and haven't had a class since — ballet is still waiting for you with open arms.

Ballet is for everyone who wants to be a part of it.

Ballet can be a special and prominent part of your life, if you want it to be.

We only have one life to live, and we should spend it doing the things we love the most, don't you agree?

Wonder of Ballet is a blog for everyone: ballet students, dancers, and dreamers!

I created this blog for YOU, the adult ballet student and dancer.

And for YOU, the person who is dreaming of ballet but hasn't quite mustered up the courage to take your first class yet.

You are in the right place!

Grab a coffee or tea, take a look around — and welcome to the wonderful world of adult ballet
