Y. wasn't there yesterday and our jazz class was taught by Frodo, a lovely sub we've had a couple of times before. My dancing is solid enough by now that I really enjoy subs. The new people in class were less excited, but that's the way things are for new people. One of the new … Continue reading Why *Do* We Do Tendus?
Last weeks ballet and yesterdays jazz class have both been marred by the same thing: my lack of speed in certain moves. In one instance, the culprits were my frappés, in the other, my core isolations. As the only ballet move (at least in the beginner's repertoire) that requires you to flex the ankle of … Continue reading I Need Some Speed

I only noticed them a tiny bit in ballet when Amy had us do super-fast … Continue reading A High Five And Some Good News

During warm-up, I realised that «as careful as … Continue reading Rehearsal Number I Lost Count, In Which I Didn’t Participate

We had a great time at a fantastic israeli restaurant with delectable dishes served in very well-meant portions. Having eaten way too much food, delicious and healthy though it was, and chased it all down with coffee, … Continue reading I Feel Validated
It's been two months since I bought my split-sole Bloch Wave Dance Sneakers, so I thought I'd share. When I was first looking into getting a pair, there was bugger all to be found that would have been useful to me, so maybe someone someday will profit from this post. Size: Bloch recommends you buy … Continue reading Review: Bloch Wave Dance Sneakers
