Interim classes.

Yesterday started off as one of those rough days. It was a struggle, and all I could think of was that at the end of the day, I got to dance. I didn’t so much care that it was in a studio or in a class, I just wanted an empty space and music to…

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…

I hadn’t danced with her since the studio closed down. She graduated and went off to school, so getting to take class with her, let alone see her, was…

Third Private Lesson

Because Abby is awesome, she squeezed in one more private lesson before these last two classes of mine before I leave Friday for Europe. I had told her about my pirouette struggles, so she told me to make sure I had my pointe shoes with me. Lillian was able to come, too, which made it…

Pictures

My phone hadn’t run the backup yet to get to add these to the post before this last one, so here is it’s own post. Enjoy. 🙂 Cheyanne is the greatest. These pictures are proof. This was from one of those moments when I really noticed how great it was to be there. (read here for a…

Summer sessions.

Yesterday began our new schedule, July classes.They only offer adult ballet and ballet classes for Intermediate/Advanced dancers (combined) which doesn’t feel any different to me, but is very different from the dancing-every-day that the intensive girls are used to. I’m really glad they give the teachers a chance to have a break, but I’m also…
