Guest prokofiev Posted November 23, 2004 Report Share Posted November 23, 2004 Well, the teacher was just fine, and it was a normal class (no terrible combinations, no insane tempos, a few new things but nothing wacky). But it just seemed like nearly all the students were "off" tonight - yours truly leading the pack... Do any of you have those classes where you mark something, or demonstrate a correction - all very nicely - and then when you do it full out, or on the other side, it's like aliens stole your brain? My teacher thought it was just that we weren't thinking, or didn't want to work today, but that's not true. I just couldn't remember anything, or I'd say, "OK, leg, don't go lower in the back in that grand rond de jambe" and foop! my leg sagged down. I can't believe she was so patient with us, actually. She probably wanted to cry, too, after seeing us slaughter everything. I wanted a big hook to come out of the ceiling and take me away. And just when it couldn't get any worse, the school director came to sit in on the last fifteen minutes in class... she hasn't come into our class all year... guess who couldn't do a single decent glissade en pointe. Dang. Quote Link to comment
