Dear all readers, I have been getting quite many questions lately, about why I am moving to Zurich. This is probably because I recently got so many new followers on Instagram, most of them haven’t followed me since the day I auditioned, which means that they do not know the reason for me moving to Zurich.
The simple reason for moving to Zurich is: because I will attend the Tanz Akademie Zurich there. It is a ballet school, ballet is what I would like to do, and I am really happy about moving there. I auditioned for the school in February & even though I had other options for other ballet schools abroad, I chose to go to this one. I personally think this ballet school will be the best for me, out of the options I had, & I am very excited to start there.
And for all those who are wondering, I will be living at a boarding house, during my attendance at the school.
Pro: The school starts 29th of August, which means I have been having a really long and nice summer break. I am used to have much fewer weeks.
Con: Moving means leaving my family… I will miss them so much, my perfect three little adorable siblings as well as my loved parents.
Pro: Travelling! Exploring a new country. Even though I am used to Swtizerland, since my grandparents have lived there, it is still a completely new city. I will get lots of new friends! And also overall fun experiences.
Cons: Not having as many holidays as I usually have.
Pros: Getting to dance in a really good school, dedicate more of my life to ballet than ever before.
Con: Not knowing the language there…
Pro: …It means that I will learn a new language, and I love learning! I have already started practicing German, it is not super hard actually.
Living in a completely different country than my friends and family do, will be hard in the beginning. I am sure that I will, after awhile, adapt really well. I am so sad to move away from my family, who I love so much, but also thrilled and super excited to go to Zurich and really focus on the dance. And don’t forget, I will always come back to my family when we have holidays, the time will probably fly by fast.
