On Ballet! – Quick Monday Class Notes
Barre work was pretty okay, though I got lost in a couple of long combinations (mainly because I can’t think and count at the same time, apparently).
l am, however, getting better at remembering combinations in general, so there’s hope!
My back is improving. I spend less time each class going, “Fosse! Fosse! Fosse!” and not keeping it all inside.
Also, surprised myself with a decent pirouette in a combination (decent is relative, here, probably?). Huh. So that’s that.
I have some kind of mental block about following a glissade with an assemble. Since this is like the most common sub-combo in the history of ballet … Erm. Yeah.
Frustratingly, I can glissade and I can assemble … as long as they’re separate.
Together? Well, I could do this when I was seven. It’ll come.
Edit: PS, I pulled a muscle in my calf but was able to finish class. Because that’s how cyclists ballet, y’all.
