Barre: A real food bar review and giveaway

UPDATE: I had originally posted as this ending December 13th at 11:59 pm. Since I said in other posts it went until Friday, feel free to enter until December 14th at 11:59 PM EST.

I’m so excited to offer my first giveaway on Adult Ballerina Project. When I first contacted Julia to set up the interview she offered to send me some barres, but I ordered some of my own as well. I’ll be giving away one of each flavor to one lucky follower picked at random.

My favorite flavor, pirouette cinnamon pecan. From realfoodbarre.com.

If you’re like me, you’re adult ballet classes fall around 6 or 7 pm. I often struggle with whether I should eat before I go to class (and risk feeling bloated and sick during class) or not eat and end up starving midway through class and be checking the clock every five minutes hoping class will be over soon so I can eat.

TweetChat Recap

For those who missed out on TweetChat last night, about five of us Adult Ballerinas chatted about all sorts of things from things we struggled with in classes like double pirouettes and arms placement (it’s good to know you’re not alone in your struggles!) as well as attending a summer intensive together this summer. We’re looking into the Sun King Dance Adult Dance Camp (and DisneyBallerina has the summer ’13 schedule here ) because they offer camp to nonprofessionals at any level.

If anyone else has summer intensive suggestions we could attend let me know! I’m probably definitely doing one of Koresh’s (here in Philly) which only run about 2 hours a day, but they always hold classes in the evenings afterwards as well for myself since I didn’t get to attend last year.

Also, for those who didn’t get to participate during Tweetchat because of time issues, let me know what times/days work best for you and where your from (feel free to send this to me in an e-mail if you want to keep it private). It’d be great to have more participants!

Don’t forget—#adultballerinas twitter chat!

Twitter chat will be at 930 pm EST! Feel free to comment below with your twitter name so other people can follow you before we start!

Mine is @kristengillette.

Well be using #adultballerinas with every tweet if you want to follow along.

TweetChat and Stretch Day #9

UPDATE: 930 PM EST for the tweet chat, sorry for any confusion!

So, I’m thinking TweetChat Sunday at 9:30 PM EST, hashtag #adultballerinas?

And here is my photo incase you didn’t catch it last night from Day 9:

My nose can touch my knees! (and my knees are slightly bent because they overextend, if they were straight they’d bend backwards!) I’ve been avoiding actual splits because my ankle is in SEVERE pain.

And favorite spam comment ever?
