Rehab & Recital

So for those who don’t know, I sprained my ankle last Sunday. That explains why I haven’t been posting, because I simply haven’t been attending classes. Today, however, I decided to take the risk and go for my dance lessons, seeing how: a) Dance lessons are the bestest b) My ankle is sort of well….

Yucks

Going to keep this short because my body isn’t feeling well with my lack of sleep last night. Second Silk class with SY today, learnt a few new poses. Was sweating like mad throughout and still sore from I don’t know what. I think I need to cut down on my training volume and find…

Beating Heart

Beats are hell on my feet. A good kind though. Second day of 3 hours of practice after a week’s break because I had to re-adjust my leave. Sad face about that but I made it to class today! And that’s what matters. Ballet is getting more and more lovely. I’m feeling a lot more…

Aerial Silks and Lyra

  First trial lesson of Aerial Silks and Lyra today and it was so much, so much fun! Definitely, definitely prefer the silks because they were so much softer, although harder to climb because I think we were using ones with rather high stretch. Learnt how to do a front and back Arabesque (not in…

Back to School

Three hours of dance classes yesterday and my body is in a wreck now. Ballet has always been sort of okay, and I’m pretty happy with being able able to follow along despite being a flailing duck. Also, I’m getting a little better at following some parts of Jazz, such as the warm-ups but the more…

2016.

Welcome to the New Year. 2016 is the year of the completion of my two years of service. The year where I begin my university education. But more importantly, a year of new possibilities.   I’m excited to start of the various things I have planned since I started this blog last year. Firstly, I…
