After studying the rehearsal video closely on a sizable screen, I can now confirm that I am way too full of myself. Some moments look really good. Others make me shout at the screen. «THROWING YOUR HEAD BACK IS NOT A CAMBRÉ, YOU IMBECILE!» and «WHY IS THAT KNEE NOT STRAIGHT?! HOW CAN YOU NOT KNOW THAT KNEE IS NOT STRAIGHT?!» have been the two favourites in the one-dork shouting-at-yourself Saturday club, so I guess I’ll have to work on those.
On the other hand, some things really do look nice. Not a perfectly graceful metaphor swan yet, but not as bad as a real swan.*
* If you think real swans are graceful, spend some time watching them. The only thing graceful about a swan is the neck line, and even that only when they are drifting peacefully in the water and not trying to get a bite of your sandwich or, barring that, your face. You want graceful waterfowl, try grebes.
