skippy Posted August 28, 2003 Report Share Posted August 28, 2003 I was not sure if i should go on the wine couch or the champagne couch so i decided to opt for a soft drink couch until i could make up my mind. Yesterday i took my intermediate exam with the RAD. I think it went well, i messed a few things up but recovered well but i still have a sinking feeling that i have failed. I know this is not very positive thinking but i do not want to set myself up for a fall. The barre work went well with one small hiccup (we all went wrong on the same exercise - petit battement serrie, it was on the 2nd side with alternative music, i could not find a beat in the music to do the exercise and neither could the other 3 girls it was actually quite comical we all lost the plot ). The centre work went well also, lots of adage, i nailed my pirouettes. I managed every double and landed perfectly (there is a first for everything). Then came the jumps, she chose all the ones i loathe. The free one was not to bad although we had to do it four times through. I danced the dance like i have never done in class, i moved it a lot more and put lots of feeling into it but this was helped by having a lot larger studio than at my school. Then came the pointe work and it seemed secure to me and i was happy with what i performed. After pointe work came the words i had been longing to hear "Thank you girls, you have now completed your examination would you please do your courtsey first to the pianist then to me) The hard part now is waiting for the results although i am not sure if i want to hear them. If i pass i shall be on that champagne couch quicker than you can pour a glass of the bubbly stuff and if i have failed well you will find me on the wine couch drowning my sorrows and getting ready for the next exam session. So until that decision is made for me my fingers and everything else is crossed Skippy Quote Link to comment
