I slept terrible last night, my mind was racing on the whole Director thing – and unwittingly I have drawn up a plan… while in bed, tracing a line of events leading to several conclusions, all of which… will sadly, be confrontational. I just have to plan in certain order, I don’t want the hassle to be honest but hidden things need to be brought to light – bad/unethical practise need to be exposed, we can’t let anyone get away with it, no matter who. I’m making a checklist… let’s see how it goes!
I was shattered already and it was the start of a new routine, I think the dial setting was on hard! Well, it was manageable, mostly memorising and doing harder steps with speed. I didn’t mind this routine but I preferred the others – I think it’s mainly the performance arms which I’m not too great at. Still, I gave it a go, less problem with my feet, but arms were inhibited!
The warmup was more intensive and the across the room was fast, basically Ailsa decided to up a level and push us – which is great! I love a good challenge and yeh I had a good time despite my half-doped state. We did wings – double followed by single wing, definitely something to refine because it was part of our routine. Two fat priorities are wings and toe pullbacks, so I’ll take any opportunity to work at them. I need the repetition!
It’s been a productive hour and my feet did ache, I loved the wings prep tonight – itching for more. Gotta keep tapping!
Studio 2 had ballet examination, we were shifted to Studio 4 – ideal for tap, probably the best studio for it. Great for tap shoes but not too good for my soft jazz shoes, my poor knees felt every leap on the hard floor. I enjoyed the shorter warmup session but didn’t like lying on the floor – didn’t look that clean! The across the room was more compact but ok. And we continued on our routine (hurrah!), Thriller!
I love Studio 4 but for Jazz I preferred the softer padding upstairs. I was beginning to fade halfway through and right now I’m aching a bit… hmm I guess it’s good! Unexpectedly I’ve been able to stretch myself further, didn’t think I’d become more flexible but yeh… guess I am, healthy mind, healthy body!
So tired… another long week ahead!
