Post Swan Lake feels. 

Day after Swan Lake and it already feels worlds away, yet I’m still basking in it.  I also left work early because I was so nauseous I couldn’t stand. So that was cute. I went home, laid in bed, watched the newest Grey’s Anatomy, and fell asleep.  I had to go to dance tonight, since…

Swan Lake, Show 2

“Can you quote me on your blog saying, ‘It was literally negative two degrees today in the theater.'”–Abaranne Henderson I think near about everyone would agree with me when I say that today’s warm up got off to a slow and sluggish start. I was actually almost late to warm up because it just didn’t…

Swan Lake, Show 1

I find it ironic that the song low key in my head this last week just started playing when I started writing this.  (Seven Swans, Sufjan Stevens) Anyway.  Last night was our first show of Swan Lake!  I ended up getting there super early, but he door was already open, so it was really convenient.…

Selena Week, Night 4

We had our last full dress rehearsal last night.  After the school show, I took my friend Lillian home, called my family and told them about becoming a swan, and picked up my friend Annika to get lunch and do some running around. We came back to her house to just hang out with the…

Selena Week, Night 2

Do you ever have those days where you feel defeated and find yourself thinking, “Why do I even do this?” That was last night for me. And it wasn’t even that it was necessarily a terrible day, or that rehearsal was horrible. I guess I’m just hard on myself. It started when I find out…

Selena Week, Night 1

Being that I work at a tax office, we are given the day after Tax Season ends off. That means, this year it was the 19th. I was able to be productive at home and running around hitting up the bank and post office and places I typically miss simply because I work when they’re…

Thoughts and stuff. 

Yesterday’s class was another small one. I, personally, liked it, but I know some girls prefer there to be more people.  I was actually able to make it through the entire class without freaking out over or avoiding anything. (I didn’t jump, but only because my knee has been hurting again. Not terribly bad, but…

Injuries. 

This weekend is our last weekend of rehearsals.  Tuesday begins “Selena Week,” the week of rehearsals in the Selena Auditorium theater we perform in. We were off last weekend because of Fesrival, so now it’s crunch time.  It seems that people are getting hurt and sick now, which is really unfortunate. One girl hurt her…

In the absence of privilege. 

I have missed quite a few classes lately, though not as many as I originally expected.  Most of the girls were at RDA festival over the weekend and a few days in the week, so we didn’t have rehearsals.  I missed last Tuesday, didn’t get to teach Friday, and missed this Monday and Tuesday. I…
