Monday Class Notes, Some Other Stuff
Tonight I was having issues with my knees. Specifically, they did not want to be straight. Something to think about.
Brienne taught tonight, with her famous athletically – demanding barre. Four men in class (including me) and ten or more women. We were a big group!
Brienne roams and corrects during barre. I got a million corrections tonight; I was a bit of a mess. Also got a compliment on a self-correction, which was nice. Praise is always good, but really good when it’s for fixing yourself.
Our adage really felt like dancing, and I think I did it well the first couple of times. I am finding it much easier to remember choreography now. Still got lost in the count in petit allegro, though. I love little jumps and get carried away.
Evidently, from outside the room we sounded like elephants.
My left gastrocnemius (that big calf muscle), which I injured somehow last week, held up fine today. I think it is basically healed (thanks in part to a certain physiotherapist!).
Next time I’ll try to write down our choreography … speaking of which, I have decided to go with Satie, pending opinions from people who know stuff.
Leather side down!
