Physiotherapy is prescribed in courses of nine appointments in Switzerland and today was my eighth one. I was not entirely happy with this. Modern only starts in two weeks and jazz and ballet classes won't resume until September. While my adductors are feeling a lot better, I'm not entirely sure they're 100% and I obviously … Continue reading Moar Physiotherapy
Yet another heat wave has made physiotherapy much more pleasant: I learned that I don't have to take my pants off if I don't wear much in the way of pants in the first place. This has made me around 95% more comfortable. The other 5% were taken care of by Mr. Adorable's adorable Austrian … Continue reading Ballet Is «Arg»
Last Thursday was the last ballet class of this term and the last class ever with my beloved ballet teacher, M. She is still studying and working several jobs to support herself, plus participating in performances with her dance company.

I usually wear knee-length sweatpants over the tights/leotard combo in modern and an incredibly useful piece … Continue reading Ballet Clothes Are Awesome And I’m Never Taking Them Off Again

But not reading a book has never stopped me from buying another book, so I got myself Liane Simmel's Dance Medicine in Practice. I can't remember how I first … Continue reading New Book And Some Updates
In adult beginner ballet class, it's not like you ever get to see your teacher actually dance for more than a minute or so. Therefore, when M. told us about the show her dance company was staging, we were all hyped to go. So last Friday, my mom, the SO and I headed off to the charming town … Continue reading Contemporary Performance!
I was incredibly tired on Thursday, but I still dragged my butt over to ballet class, the rule of thumb being that whenever I'm thinking «I really want to go to class, but...» I should stay at home, and whenever my brain keeps looking for convincing reasons not to go, I should definitely get my ass … Continue reading Sacroiliac Blergh
