skippy Posted July 3, 2003 Report Share Posted July 3, 2003 Oh My God, i have finally done my grade 8 RAD ballet exam. On Tuesday 1st July i knocked back lots of rescue remedy (flower extracts) and headed off to the ballet studio with one pair of ballet shoes, calf length ballet skirt, one pair of character shoes and one character skirt. By the time i got there the remedy had started to kick in. I warmed up for an hour, went through all dances i was about to do then sat silently for ten minutes until we were called in. (three of us were taking it) The examiner was lovely, A very mature lady, did not come across as a ballet bod until she spoke and calmly told us what was expected of us. We started with the barre work where my left foot took it apon itself to inflict cramp on me, in the end the pain was so bad that i had to straighten my foot out ever so slightly so i could stand on it in the next movement. :eek: Then we had to do our solo dances and i danced my little backside off like i have never done before, well not for a long time. The rescue remedy proved to be a godsend and i have now bought a bottle of my own. (Anita, one of the other girls who was also taking exam and a friend of mine, lent me her bottle so thanks for that). So now all we have to do is wait for approx 6 weeks for the results. Its going to be more nerve racking waiting for them than it was taking the exam. I am so glad it is over, next one in August which i am dreading - Elementary (now known as intermediate).
