…That a straight hour of partnering work can be pretty heavy on the arms even if there isn’t a single lift.
Especially 4-on-1 partnering, when you’re the 1.
Update: TI Also Learned that when I post at midnight, I don’t proof-read very well!
Me in a nutshell:
Standard uptight ballet boy. Trapeze junkie. Half-baked choreographer. Budding researcher. Transit cyclist. Terrible homemaker. Neuro-atypical. Fabulous. Married to a very patient man.
Bachelor of Science in Psychology (2015).
Proto-foodie, but lazy about it.
Cat owner ... or, should I say, cat own-ee? ... dog lover. Equestrian.

4:1 partnering – that looks like the hungry female mob closing over the only boy in the studio ;).
Reminded me on Sunday, where during a urban contemporary workshop I feared to be the OBIR (only boy in room) – but one of the women brought her husband with her.
If you want really arm and hand flailing, try something with hip hop elements :).
At least it’s a nice female mob! 😀
Regarding hip-hop: OMG, you’re not kidding. I have enough difficulty stripping the ballet out of my modern; I am ridiculously bad at de-balletifying hip-hop, and it pretty much turns into, “Asher, are you okay? You look like you’re having a seizure.” 😛
