ballaurena Posted January 12, 2006 Report Share Posted January 12, 2006 Some days I feel totally on and everything goes how I want it to, and other days, I just fall apart. It seems like those days I'm constantly battling with my body to make it work properly, and nothing looks like how it does when professionals do it. My turns are especially inconsistent, and in the past 3 weeks or so I haven't even been able to do a triple en dehors on my good side, which I thought I was really improving before the holiday break. With my first audition (SAB) just around the corner next Monday, I'm totally worried that I'll just have a spastic day and look terrible. I don't know if they'll be able to see through having a bad dancing day and see my potential, or if I'm running out of time for schools to be looking for potential (I'll be 16 this summer). I feel that if I want to get an apprentice position after high school, I should be at a point where I'm working on refining my technique, and sometimes I feel like that's what I'm doing, and other days I feel like I have a hundred technical flaws that I need to correct. Everytime I have a bad day, I get completely down on myself and lose hope that I'll ever make ballet a career, let alone a successful one. Does anybody else feel this way? How can I look at a bad class in a more positive way? Quote Link to comment
