Choose Your Own Intensive: Day 2

At ML&Co, it was partnering day. I paired up with a girl who was frankly awesome at partnering. She made us both look good!

I landed hardish a couple of times on my healing foot, but still made it through everything in BW’s master​class except grand pirouettes going left. My foot complained about those, so I decided to play it safe and only do a couple.

Even grand allegro went reasonably well. Still can’t get out of my own way doing brisées in medium allegro, though :/

Or, well. I managed a couple going right, but literally got off on the wrong foot going left and failed to actually recover.

I guess that’s going to be a goal this week.

The combo is:

Glissade, jeté, jeté jeté; balloté x4; coupé-balloné; brisée, brisée; temps de cuisse, entrechat quatre x2.

I think I’m going to have to mark that at home.

On the other hand, some of the stength-y things and some of the balance-y things felt easier today, as did the crazy petit allegro brainteaser that BW has us running (the one from last Thursday with the incredibly confusing assemblés).

So that was today. No ML&Co class tomorrow, so I plan to catch up on housework, make friends with the foam roller, and review the crap out of that medium allegro.
