I’ve been behind on my post writing. This week has just been nuts. Heading into work for 1 PM and not getting out until 10 is fine and all… but I’m not holding up my end of the bargain with these posts. Technically, I am writing a post each day by sending it back in time. Probably not the best thing to do, but at least there are posts here. May as well write something rather than nothing at all right? What I really should be doing is writing my posts BEFORE I head into work, but I don’t have much to write about as I wake up. After all the interesting stuff happens during my day and by the time I get home, I start writing but it’s already the next day by then, hence the time travel.
Anyway, on this day in my history I practiced my songs more and then did 5 hours of wonderful ballet. I am still having trouble getting the right timing for poses, pas de chat, and other movements that are used in allegro and the like. I think I just need to learn more codas and it will become clear. Pirouettes make more sense to me now. Slower and give time for however many spins there are. Since they’re just learning, control is important and not flying all around (which will make them finish faster and throws me off). I do wonder sometimes if I am supposed to lead or support the class. With the younger kids, they’re told to listen to me, but I end up falling in with the instructor, which I suppose is the best thing for the exercises. I suppose for an actual dance it’s about me leading them. I guess every part of the class is different.
See? This is what my posts turn into. Rambling. Ah well. Another day down.
