Meet Our New Intern Hilary Pyo

Headshot 2When I was four years old, I was enchanted by a production of The Nutcracker, and I eagerly  began ballet lessons with Laurel Ballet Performing Company in Greensburg, PA. At age sixteen, I decided to pursue a professional career; training with the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre School and performing as a company dancer with the Georgia Ballet and Brandywine Ballet Theatre.

Throughout my career, I’ve valued ballet as a challenging yet rewarding form of physical training, and I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge with students of all ages. I graduated from West Chester University of Pennsylvania in May 2015 with a degree in English, and I am thrilled to combine my love of writing and dancing with Adult Ballerina Project!

Hello Blogathon Day 1!

Given that I currently have a decent amount of free time on my hands, I’ve decided to participate in Freelance Success/WordCount Blogathon. As part of the blogathon, I’ll be posting every day in the month of June. I plan on keeping up with my normal blog activities (profiles, videos, how-tos, reviews) as well as some more blog-style posts.

I hope it’ll be a jump start to get me back into blogging. I hope that some of my fellow dance bloggers join me (you can sign up here!)

March Goals — Day 1 of #CityFitGirls March Instagram Challenge

February was a brutal month–it’s been freezing cold here in Philadelphia. I pretty much lost my way as far as getting any cardio in at the gym given the weather. However, for the most part I’ve managed to consistently get to two or three ballet classes a week, which I consider to be a pretty huge accomplishment.

Here are my basic goals for March (which is part of City Fit Girls March photo contest on Instagram):


Expanding on them a bit more:

1. Stretch more: I’ve been trying to stretch for a good 20-30 minutes on the days I don’t already have ballet. So far, so good.

2. Become more flexible: One will help get me there. I’d also like to become more flexible person in terms of my personal and work relationships, too.

3. Strength train: I want to work both on my foot and core/leg strength. I want to incorporate more pilates, too.

4. Eat Healthy I started off 2015 eating like crap. I started Whole30 a week ago (more on that soon!) but even when Whole30 is over, I wanted to be eating better.

5. Take more photos: Given that this is a photo challenge this should be easy! I want more photos of me doing ballet, too.

6. Write more: I want to be writing more both for this blog and for other purposes. Even though it’s my day job, I want to do more of it.

7. Have fun: Have fun while doing all of this, and change my goals if it’s not fun.

What are your goals for the month of March?
