Ballet Squid Chronicles: Coming Together

Did both classes tonight.   I felt good throughout, with the exception of totally not having a couple of barre combos sorted in Claire’s class.

Pirouettes are becoming reliable.   I did one double, from fourth,  semi-badly (it could have been worse, which represents progress). 

My coupé- and passé relève balances are becoming like my track stands used to be: they work until I realize they’re working, Wyle E.  Coyote style 😛  They’re improving, though, so no complaints.

Combinations came off well.  I’m still going on the first group all the time, and it’s still working.

After class,  Claire asked how it was feeling (the dancing, that is), then said,  “It’s coming together!”

So that was an awesome end to a frank roller-coaster of a day.

So that’s it for now.  Keep the sunny side up, and don’t forget to salt your eggs a little.
