Im so sad that today was the last day with Mrs.Luba. These past 2 weeks have been phenomenal and I have grown so much as a dancer. I can’t wait for next year already. Today in technique we did a lot of piques and pique arabesques. In the partnering class we did promenades, shoulder sits, and a bunch of whip turns. Today was very fun and I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself now that the intensive is over😭. Words cannot describe how much I will miss this and how amazing it was.
Wow today was a long day…in addition to regular class we had rehearsals and an end of intensive show! This has been the best day so far! We made so many improvements to our dances before the show and they looked great. I did well, but I could’ve done a bit better with control and not rushing at some parts. Im so sad tomorrows the last day😢.
whoops forgot to post yesterday😬….anyways yesterday was great we cleaned pizzicato (en pointe) a lot and did pointe work. The technical portion of class was extra tiring today, but it was still tons of fun. We did many turns from fifth and fourth and we did endedan and endehor soutenus (which I have greatly improved over the past 2 weeks). The show is tomorrow and I’m super excited😃 (Well technically today, but if I wrote this yesterday like I should’ve..it would’ve been tomorrow😂).
Today was a bit more challenging due to the fact that we had yesterday off. We did a lot of soutenus and balancing. It was very fun and when it’s over I will miss it. We continued working on Pizzicato, but in flat shoes today. In modern we did a lot of floor work that you have to engage your center and abdominals which I definitely need to work on and make a habit. I’m excited for pointe tomorrow even though tomorrow I will have new bruises and blisters.😂😬😬
Plies are probably my favorite thing to do at the barre… I don’t know what but I get so excited when we do a pliés after warming up our feet😂😂. Today was fun and filled with across the floor and some petite allegro. I focused on really pointing through my whole foot and not half doing it. In modern we learned our dance for the performance on Friday…it needs a little bit of cleaning, but it’s good for learning it in an hour.:)
My feet are dead…but that’s ok we did a lot of great center pointe work and continued to work on pizzicato. I really need to focus on pulling up my body when I dance…especially in balancing and turning. Tomorrow I’m really going to focus on pulling up and engaging all my muscles.👍🏻
We started off class differently today…we practiced how we enter and exit stages. The barre work was a bit easier and shorter. We did a lot of center work and some adagio. In our partnering class there was a shortage of boys…..so we just partnered with girls😂😂. All of it was super fun, especially the finger turns. That was my first time partnering and I learned a lot of the mechanics and how to properly do lifts. It was tons of fun!;)
