Class actually went quite well for me this week - but when I woke up this next morning I had a strained adductor muscle.

The unfortunate part is that there are no adult ballet classes...so....I'm in the advanced/intermediate class with a bunch of 14-16 year olds. How does that go??? Um... last year on America's Got Talent,...Beth Ann Robinson, she's in my class. And I think all of the kids can IN COMBINATION do a double pirouette, triple fouette, double pirouette. They just turn and turn and turn...with me bumbling along barely making a single pirouette. Le sigh... I do so enjoy the barre portion, it is challenging, but I'm hopeless in centre. Half the time, I just skip the centre combinations entirely, choosing instead to quietly mark it in the corner. When I attempt the combinations, I'm usually in the way of other dancers because we go in pairs and trios and everything is FAST. I definitely remember this feeling though, from when I moved from beginner adult ballet to more advanced. I try and remember that I'm doing this because I love to learn, it is a great workout, and I WANT to...it is just hard to want to some times when you feel like crying.
And...Baby T2 is now in a baby ballet class. She does so good considering my schedule only permits us time to make the Creative Movement 2 class (she really should be in CM1, but it is too early in the day for me to make after work). She participates really well though and is learning a dance for the recital in a few months. I'll probably keep her in CM2 for two years so she has the time she needs for those basics.

It's tough sometimes because I only have access to this one pointe class (due to my work schedule) unless I do barre en pointe in one of my other technique classes. I'm not expecting greatness, but I take this pointe class because it's (usually) fun and I did miss it from when I danced en pointe during my teen years (which I will admit wasn't great training at all compared to what I have now). I suppose I need to remind myself just how far I have come in the last year...
