I just got home from teaching and i'm still feeling stressed. It's been a really challenging couple of months with the recital coming closer and closer. The girls are really challenging me at times. I know they don't really enjoy ballet, but it makes it really hard to conduct the classroom and choreograph a dance. I just feel like all i get is rolling eyes and whispering complaints. I'm choreographing a more contemporary ballet piece for them in the hopes that they will enjoy it more than the classical approach. Even that doesnt' seem to satsify them. I think i need to learn to take better control over my classroom. I wish i knew more about how to approach that. I feel i've hit a wall. I don't know where to go from here.
