Okay, so this isn’t really anything I’m learning, but it is something I’m really excited about!
Jilissa told us today what to expect for the summer classes.
Usually we’ll start a little earlier or go a little longer or something that changes it a little bit.
Today she told us we would start at 5:15 instead of 6.
That Beginner/Intermediate will be from 5:15-6:15
Then we’ll have a pointe class from 6:15-6:45
Then we’ll have advanced from 6:45-8
She then told us,
“I highly recommend you stay for the pointe class. Even if you’re not on pointe yet, but you’re working towards it. It’s going to be a lot of releve’s and strengthening exercises. It’s going to be really good. And every single one of you in here can stay for the advanced class. I want every single one of you in the advanced class.”
wait, all of us? We can all stay?
I can stay for advanced?!
She then went on to tell us that it’s going to be a lot of hard work and really going for it this summer. Summer’s tend to be a little more intense and really good for challenging and bettering you.
I’m really excited. My goal is to get on pointe by fall, but I know if that doesn’t happen, then it’ll be okay. I don’t want to get on earlier than what I’m ready for. But she was making a lot of eye contact with me, so I know she knows I want this. And the fact that she’s changing the classes to do these things that are going to help me so much, I’m PUMPED.
I’m really looking forward to summer 🙂
