6 months

So the first five months of this year have gone by, and looking back on them I kind of feel like I haven’t accomplished as much as I wanted to, or probably should have. The good First dance recital! Completed Beginner Lyra and am in Intermediate (2 lessons) 6 lessons of silk with my new…

Anxiety

i’ve been struggling with some anxiety and depression symptoms for the past few weeks, hence i haven’t been able to post as regularly as i used to. it’s a first time experience for me and it sucks and i’m learning how to deal with it even now. so, this will be a quick update on…

To New Experiences: Recital

It’s amazing how I ended up on this final letter with everything that’s happened this week. RECITAL WENT GREAT! I had a lot of fun even with the nerves. The lights were bright so the audience was kinda dark from the stage but I could still see them. Ballet went really well and we managed…

Higher

Went into Turns class yesterday a little more moody than usual, but it ended up being pretty fun, followed by a fun Ballet/Jazz class as well to end off the term. Next term is recital and other stuff so it’ll be fun. The fees that are dropping on me in this month though… I need…

Moving along

I was told my kicks were perfect in technique class yesterday. Talk about a miracle happening. I sucked at everything else anyway so it balances out. Finally settled the choreography for the recital, a.k.a. no lift, but I’m still happy to be a part of it and it looks like it’s going to turn out…

Why Do We Fall?

  Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of…

I am a bad student (part. 2)

As lovely as this title is, I need to stop having to write posts like this. I dropped my partner today. Well, semi-dropped. It was probably less than 10cm from the ground, but she fell back a little and I manage to catch her. I was trying to lift her from her hips but somehow…

Maddening, joyous bliss

I’m currently in recovery from my wisdom teeth extraction, hence the lack of updates, but I do have a lot of stuff to share. I couldn’t get a particular post out in time for today because it’s incomplete. Nevertheless, I wanted to share this quote with all of you today, the 29th of February 2016 because…

Ballet Lifts

Happy to finally return to dance class today, and in the new studio no less(: Worked on recital and graded stuff today. I missed last week’s practice, but I managed to learn most of what was covered through the video that was sent. Going to performing two lifts (arabesque and hip) in the recital piece…

Finally back

Finally back to Lyra classes after a 2 week break. Missed out on so, so much. Luckily, I was able to catch up today. Did the hocks hang (assisted), man in the moon, amazon, half angel and full angel (I think), some upside down split (don’t know the name) and another upside down split (don’t know…

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….
