Ballet Squid Chronicles: Chain, Chain, Chain — Chain of Chainee-nees!
OMG you guys! I did chaînes* and they didn’t suck! Some were even pretty! I even finished them with a lovely tomblie thingy and everything!
Opera today, so we did Essentials. Class was really, really good. I am more or less back up to speed on the basic basics.
Margie threw in some balances a la seconde, and those went very well for me. I got to releve without difficulty and stayed up. That was awesome.
General corrections were mostly about keeping it all pulled together, which is awesome, because that’s what I’m working on at a sort of overall level.
I was able to carry over Monday’s correction to my fourth position, so that was cool, too. Amazingly, I didn’t hose anything up. It’s nice to be able to work on perfecting things for once 😀
I’m kind of bummed about missing noon class today because Brian is teaching. Oh well. This opera is supposed to be really, really good, though.
So there you go. That’s it for today!
*For some reason, these have been the bane of my existence for quite a while. Like, my ENTIRE LIFE.
