Home from Ballet on a Saturday afternoon. I had a wonderful class. I honestly can’t sing the praises of Miss Michelle enough. She is an amazing teacher, and even when she’s frustrated, all you want to do is work twice as hard to make her happy…not get pissed of and want to leave.
She teaches with humor, and examples. She makes you feel so excellent when she notices something has improved.
I feel like my technique has improved by leagues since starting here. That is not to say that I think I’ve gotten a whole lot better, but I’m on the path towards feeling that way.
The studio has company auditions next month. Now, this is the same as it was in Sioux Falls. I told myself not to try out because there was no way I would make it, and I ended up making it. However, the company here is a different type of company…and it’s not that I don’t think I’m good enough to make it, or that I could get good enough to make it. It’s simply that there are a lot of expectations that the instructors have here that I don’t even know about, and all it takes to learn them is more time. Next month really isn’t that much more time.
So, we’ll see how I feel. I don’t have to plan on it. But it would ratchet up my dedication a little, and that’s always a good thing.
