Classical ballet, my mother enrolled me at age of four with French instructor Madam Corbet (Bellas Artes and then Clara Elena Ramirez for modern Jazz–that was at 18 y/o I did both back then. Danced thru age 21. Piano private and at Conservatorion Nacional ( total of three times a week) enrolled at age of 7, I quit (because Tennis lessons was more appealing and swimming) at age of 16. No breaks taken unless travel during summer time. THANKS MOM AND DAD. #appreciative

I wanted to be a classical ballerina for the rest of my life and my Dad said, “NO I am glad you kept it up since you were four but you are and HAVE to focus in your college degrees and be successful not at as a classical ballerina.. it is not going to work, a career that when I am gone you can rely on and be successful “.

I cried and begged… I can still see that moment.  He said you can dance part time but you must focus in furthering your education and I will continue to pay all your degrees but ballerina is out the window as a professional career–of course i cried until I got over it.

Hey, my Dad was right… I remember sitting behind his desk in is office bawling my eyes out and telling him: “this is a very bad meeting Dad you do not understand me I handed you my Architecture degree let me be what I want”… He said “Well, this meeting is over for now. We will discuss another day but I will tell you I am not changing my mind and your mother is in agreement. I thought,  “she never understands meeeee”.   They did the right thing!

 

* BALLET MEMORIES

Beautiful, reminds me of my ballet classes, I started at 4 years old and I still remember when my mother told me let’s go and enroll you in Classical ballet I was so happy full of joy in my heart, the same day she enrolled me I said “mommy I want to start right now” she said ” my love I need to buy you the ballet clothing and slippers, I noticed they had a “boutique” in that office they had few ballet clothing for sale I pointed it out to my mom” she smiled and said okay, let’s do it. Mom asked the French Ballet Instructor Madame Corbett, – she was known to be strict and by the book, I can still see her blue eyes looking at my eyes and said ” why not? I can see her passion….. that was amazing !1391899_1119252411434110_5496937591807554290_n-1

At age seven (7) I produced a ‘movie’ for my siblings and kids neighbors friends. I also charged  $0.50 cents for ticket entrance [I designed the entrance tickets and sold them] and they all came in dressed up and paid to get in. I was the ticket agent as well.  Of course my parents disapproved it and disciplined me [disciplines were having a meeting at my father’s home  office  listening to his discontent/disagreement and solutions for a similar situation not to happen again] me for collecting money, tearing apart my Fathers  travel and business slides pictures’ -but I had permission to use his Camera and photography equipment.  My Father liked my imagination and creation but not the business aspect of it.

SHEDDING LIGHT 

Painful Silence sheds light in the midst of darkness that is clothing children and parents destroyed, humiliated, robbed by Family Court and CPS Industry.
We look up to G-D and follow our goal to dismantle a system that isn’t working in protecting children and families -until all are free.
