Class class class!

The blizzard raging out my window has forced reminded me to write an update about recent ballet classes.

Class 1:  My regular class was cancelled for Thanksgiving (no dedication to the art, I say!), so I did a make-up class that week.  However, the only make-up class available is the adult intermediate/advanced class.  As I am barely a beginner, I was a bit nervous – but it was actually wonderful!  There were only 4 of us, so there was a lot of individual attention.  It was kind of nice to see some more complicated combinations at the barre, even when I clearly couldn’t follow them.  I can see the through-line of the steps.  And it’s so inspiring to see the other women in class dancing so beautifully.

Class 2:  After over a week off, the first regular beginner class after the holiday was not great.  I felt sluggish and clumsy.  My feet were ignoring me, and my balance was lousy.  I just had a bad class.  It was the first time I left the studio cranky.  But I decided to let it go as a bad day, and concentrate on the next class.  Which was . . .

Class 3: . . . awesome!  The class was PACKED!  I think there were 15 of us, and the usual class is 7 or 8.  Although that meant less time across the floor, we did some different combos to accommodate the larger groups.  And I feel like I got everything, for the first time.  I wasn’t great, but I was doing it.  AND on the correct leg!  I just had fun.

Next week is my last class of the year.  Not looking forward to two weeks off ballet, but I’ll survive.  And I have it on good authority that I’ve got some new leotards and a couple ballet DVDs coming under the tree to keep me occupied. 😉
