Balanchine Noodle Experiment FTW
Tonight we added Apollo-y things and something I’m calling a Balanchine Noodle Experiment.
If you’re familiar with Balanchine’s ouevre, you probably know what I mean: those things where a flock of dancers basically ties itself into moving a Celtic knot?
Anyway, I’ve always thought those were cool (even back when I didn’t like B-style because I hadn’t seen it done well).
So that’s the kind of thing we’re doing—with partnering in the mix—and it’s hella cool.
We’re basically two weeks to launch now, which is really exciting.
Tomorrow, modern and BW’s class(1).
- I still haven’t found my effing jump rope, blergh; I’m just going to buy a new one. It won’t kill me to have a couple.
PS: I was a brainless mess in Killer Class, but evening class went brilliantly. Some light & lovely turns to combat the sheer badness of this morning’s turns.

I had to google ‘FTW’, because I figured you didn’t mean what I always thought it meant.
Hopefully not Apollo I-y or Apollo 13-y.
Funny, for the longest time, I always assumed that reading! And don’t worry, no astronauts were harmed in the making of this dance 😀
