Is it spring yet?

Oh, well hello there spring season. Too bad the weather doesn't match! We are one day away from finishing off an interesting first week back since nutracker/winter break. My body is, of course, feeling a little rough. It's not as bad as i thought since i was a good ballerina and did a bit of stretching in betweeen cookies. Learning new choreography has been challenging since i haven't really done modern in about 4yrs. I am really enjoying it and feel like this will help me to be more well rounded again. It's so nice to turn in and get close to the floor once again. I forgot how much i did enjoy movements where you don't have to force turn out and a smille.

It's suppose to snow tonight and i'm hoping it doesn't affect my morning commute to class!! I'm suppose to learn a little pas de deux from a contemporary piece we have been setting on top of the modern one. I usually love snow days, but i really want to finish up these pieces so i can start putting myself into them instead of just learning the movements. I love getting lost in a role and i don't feel like i have accomplished true artistry until i have done so.

I need some warm weather and wine. I'm trying to get out of the winter blues these past few weeks. I keep taking myself back to the warm days of spring and picnics with booba. I'm such a summer child. Me and cold.....NOT friends.

Hope you are all well and not getting the 'debby downer' winter blues too bad.

Have you started the ethnic piece "Drums" yet? The pas for that one is nice. I liked the earthiness of it and the music very mellow. I think at times I should have been a contemporary dancer. lol I'm sure you'll do wonderfully in all the pieces.

Hey Jenn! How are you doing?? Nope, no Drums yet. I think that is in march. I'm excited, i've only ever seen it, never done it. I agree with the contemporary dancer thing. My body hate ballet and i force it to do it haha. Come take class sometime! :)
