Just Falling Down Dead Is An Option

I had forgotten that the variation we’re doing is from act 2 of Giselle, with the Wilis trying to dance Albrecht into his grave, which he may or may not richly deserve depending on whether we read him as a soulless playboy toying with the heart of an innocent country lass or the star-crossed youth torn between True Love and social obligation.

…So if all else fails, just falling down dead at the end is totally an option, I guess.

Basically, this is what I'm doing — but without the ninja.

BTW, this video (no pressure, it’s just that Baryshnikov guy) has the ending I’m currently doing, only mine doesn’t have, like, quite as many turns o_O’

Guess I’ll keep working on it?
