I feel like a bag of excuses.

I left class after barre yesterday.About 30 minutes early. The bug bite on my elbow had swelled up pretty good and my foot was hurting (and I even found more bites?) which was making the dance mom’s concerned. I blamed it on that and told Ms. Munro I was gonna leave to take care of…

No excuses.

This is my 201st post. So that’s kinda fun. Anyway.I haven’t been doing grande plies or any extensive jumps in the last two classes. It’s helped my knee, but I know the pain is still there, I’m just not tapping into it.It’s beyond frustrating to know I can do all these things on my left…

Missed a class already.

Yesterday I had to skip my 6s class.Well, I guess I didn’t have to. But I did. I think it was for the best. Me knee was feeling better in the morning, but as soon as I started bending it more than just walking, the pain returned faster than…well…something fast. I had my chiropractor’s appointment yesterday.…

Bump in the road.

Yesterday was the 5s class that has the separate pointe class with it. (So essentially, its the longer 5s class. Fancy words and diction is failing me. meh.)I was slightly hesitant about the class, being that my knee was still being dumb, but hopeful that I could still make it through and it would be…

First Advanced Class

I felt safe. I had my first 6’s class yesterday, and it was…

Back at it!

(Oh wait. I didn’t really leave.) I’m taking the Monday 5s, Tuesday 6s (sans pointe), Wednesday 5s, and Thursday 6s classes this semester, or at least am trying them out. I don’t foresee any issues, but you never know really. Yesterday was the first official class of the Fall semester. I was glad for it,…

Last Summer Class

Yesterday was our last class of the summer.I almost didn’t go because I was, once again, not feeling too hot.(I’m really hoping this isn’t a trend, because if it is then Nutcracker will be a serious struggle.) (We’ll cross that bridge when it gets here.) I was really excited for class because a few of…

Fall Class Placements

I wasn’t able to go to class on Wednesday, and last Monday there was an influx of people in the studio registering, so I waited until yesterday to ask about which classes I should be taking in the fall.I wanted to ask Mrs. Alex, since she knows the most about where I am and has…

Hi, hello, I’m back.

I have yet to go through all of my pictures from my trip to Europe (I had to get a new hard drive, there are so many…oops…) but when I do, I will post some of the ballet-y ones. It should be noted that some of the students at the Dutch National Ballet for the…
