ballet training: 4 years or so of learning that you don’t actually know how to stand up straight, followed by a lifetime of doing the wrong thing with your arms and not jumping high enough

instadanceDrosselmeyer 2.0 😁 I didn't go with gigantic crazy hair for tonight's dress & tech run because I didn't really have time, but I like this colored pomade better than last year's solution of spray-in color and white highlighting powder—it's just easier. Also figured out how to hang the cape for the opening scene, even though I'm no taller than I was last year and last year I thought I couldn't reach the hook 🤷 #dancerlife #nutcracker #nutcrackerballet #balletboy #makethemagichappen #dancersofig #instance #dancestagramNo further caption needed I guess 🤣 #risefilter #balletmime #balletmemes #heartburn #owDoesn't everyone do lesson planning sitting in a really wide straddle, tho? 😅 (PS: my sinuses have calmed down marginally now that I'm not jumping up and down 🤣) #dancerlife #balletboyIt's the "my sinuses are trying to explode and I just want to survive today" face. It's usually easy for me to tell when I'm coming down with a sinus infection, because I'm addition to fatigue, sinus pressure, headaches, and nosebleeds, I get raccoon eyes 🦝 Definitely a bit of a #ZombieRaccoon today 😅 OTOH I finally remembered to ask someone to actually teach me brisée-volé, so that's a step in the right direction? 😅 #sinuses #dancerlife #NeverSurrender #blurgh #whicheverFilter
