My physiotherapy with Mr. Adorable is drawing to an end. Yesterday was the second-to-last time and he continued teaching me what I need to know to continue exercising and avoiding injury by myself. I opted out of the pistol squats because my infamous, irresponsibly self-diagnosed knee pain was rearing its ugly head again. To be … Continue reading Trolled By My Therapist!
The Pixar classic A Bug's Life. As commented by next class' jazz teacher after surveying our attempts at our current modern choreography. It's even funnier in German, because the movie is literally called The Great Crawling. To be fair, there's a part where we actually crawl backwards for four counts to avoid turning the floorwork … Continue reading Things Your Dancing Should Not Look Like, Part 2
I've been busy at work, lacking energy and therefore neglecting the blog a bit. Nothing terribly exciting happened anyway except that I got two totally random hugs: one while saying good-bye to my jazz teacher, Y., and one when greeting our Cinderella in modern.

I had been taking classes for almost a year at that point, so I had a head start. She knows this and so (I hope) doesn't resent … Continue reading Bad Conscience?

On Tuesday, I got a high five from Mr. Adorable for having successfully attended all my dance classes with hardly any complaints from the adductors. 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
On Wednesday and Thursday respectively, I've had my first jazz and ballet classes after the injury and the subsequent break... and they went amazingly well! Remind me to try (and probably fail) to express my gratitude to Mr. Adorable in a non-creepy way. I was slightly worried about my not-so-Nordic hamstring before jazz, but it … Continue reading I Can DEFINITELY Dance
