back from class...


"Plié, relevé! Plié, relevé! Plié, relevé!" is totally stuck in my head now, playing over and over to piano music, lol... class tonight was great, but exhausting! Lots of raising up, jumps, and extending. My legs feel like jelly. I really need to start remembering the french names for each move too... fun though! And now... bed.

Oh man. I would love to take ballet again. Such a great feeling! Hope you are sore in that good way tomorrow.

totally jealous! this makes me miss my former days as a ballerina :( i'd say some french names, but have no clue how to spell them! Enjoy yourself!

You're very brave, but after watching Black Swan I can see the appeal

I took a casual ballet lesson with my sister last year and all your posts about your classes have me thinking that perhaps I should purchase a concession pass to dance classes rather than a gym membership...

Rebecca - I totally am! lol... ah well, it's a good thing.

Ash - Yeah that's the other thing, spelling them... I had to check that I had releve right!

Twigart - Well, i'm not on pointe, so it's not as dramatic, lol, mostly just a fun class!

Scireg - :)

Andrea - You totally should! I think it's so much more challenging than going through the machines at the gym. I'm using muscles I never knew I had, although they really hurt today, haha...

Andrea (LIF) - Aw, that's so cool. I'm nowhere near pointe, lol, far from it, but I would love to learn... they have a gereral pointe class for beginner adults downtown here... maybe one day!

I recently saw that you are in Canada, my cousin lives in Toronto and takes a ballet class there too, with live piano music...I wonder if you go to the same place!
