so I've gone back to dancing full force. ouch. I've been taking just a technique class on mondays which is awesome. Then I got asked to participate in the WV Dance Festival piece (which I have been a part of for the past 4 years). So I was excited to get into that again a learn some choreography. And then wouldn't you know I got a solo=) yay. The music is some Cirque de Soleil and it's on pointe. People, I haven't been on pointe since August. That's six months. So now I decided to take the pointe class on fridays to get back in the groove. And tonight was my first pointe class. I went through barre with some hard Capezio's then moved to the centre with some super supple Gaynors (so I can turn) and then did rehearsal with broken in Capezio's. I got a couple of blisters....but my toes are taped up and I comfortably sore.
And then I got asked by the Charleston Ballet to come as a Guest Artist to do West Side Story in May. Why, oh why didn't all this happen when I was still in Company??? Unfortunatly, I can't make the rehearsals for that, so I won't be participating. bummer. The costumes were Uh-maz-ing.
So I'm dancing and teaching, my two loves and....waiting. still.
Speaking of 'still', I have felt the need to be very quiet the past few weeks. I'm generally a very quiet person, but this is strange. I haven't been talking to people a lot....no texting or emailing, etc. I just don't have anything to say. I feel like I should just listen. It's weird.
