Class 34
Advanced with Meg

I was going to take a selfie but my eyeliner had sweated down my face so here are my feet. LOL

Tonight was my last class until after Easter and it was AWESOME. Such excellent energy in the studio and Meg was on fire. Music was on point(e) tonight... We had J-Lo, Wicked, Gyspy, Hairspray... All the classical ballet classics.

It was that perfect level where I was like "oh this is a bit challenging for me" but not so hard that I felt like it was beyond me. Not everything worked tonight but some things felt good, and everything felt fun!

My legs are DEAD. I did a really hard session with my physio at pilates yesterday because I won't see her for a week (she's off to DJ some yoga festival in Bali - how cool!), and tonight everything was a marathon. Tendus, jetés, fondage (fondu and adage combined 😂), jumping ... The only marathons I like are ones that involve Netflix but these were pretty great. Haha. Also dead... My core. So fatigued and my pulling up abilities were a little questionable tonight. Meg noticed. Because she notices everything.

Everthing is tired and aches a little but in a nice way.

Happy Easter for those acknowledging it!

See you at the barre, Pia 💖

Class 33
Intermediate with Chihiro

I missed this class last week because I went to brunch. Brunch was fine but I think ballet would've been better. 😉 We were in studio 1 today which I like because it's bigger but I also struggle in because everything is so far away and without glasses, everything is a blur.

Chihiro always ends with a variation which is the best!! Today was one that Ilearnt a few years ago with Scott Putman at the Perth Adult Ballet Masterclasses. I didn't remember it but it was familiar.

We did a beautiful adagio that even I (President of the #ihateadageclub) enjoyed!

My schedule over the next few weeks is a bit all over the place and I think I can make about two classes in the fortnight... I'll be doing my own barre in my lounge room before I go to bed. Not the same but better than nothing! Do any teachers want to Skype a lesson to me? 😂

Class 32
Coaching with Meg
.
I went to a wedding yesterday. I woke up with a headache and blisters on the balls on my feet from hours on the d-floor. Zero regrets but 9am ballet was a bit of a struggle.

Class was tiring but it was fun! We turned a lot. There was lots of talk about using our plié... We jumped a bit. We did the La Bayadère variation that they started last week.

Class 31
Intermediate 1 with Andries

I'm pretty exhausted at the moment. Work is really busy as we prepare for Easter close-down. On top of this, I've been facing a personal David and Goliath battle with a large but somewhat anonymous page on Facebook who have stolen my design, photo and product description and are selling tshirts in their store. It's been emotionally draining but I'm so fortunate to have had support and advice from family, friends and the #adultballetcommunity who stepped up advocated for me!

My body feels so tense and stiff from the stress, and my brain wasn't on today but the body is pretty amazing and muscle memory stepped in for the most part.

Adage was horrendous... All four times. #ihateadageclub I was far too jittery and unfocused. Surprisingly I was turning well today. The new thing I learnt on Saturday with my arms and hands is really working. My left ankle is a bit swollen - cause unknown but I suspect the variation I learnt on Saturday was the culprit. Jumping was an effort but grand allegro is always fun!

Class 30
Advanced with Meg

My body felt weird today. Uncoordinated and mistimed... I couldn't get my arms and legs to match, and everything felt a bit weird.

I tried to remember my corrections from Saturday. Crossing my tendus, shoulders - nipples - hips to the front, not rib shifting at the barre, controlling grand ronde on the way down, new arabesque position, no cashew hands before I turn, reaching out at the start of pirouettes... All the things.

Class 27
Intermediate 2 with Mel

I finally made it back to a Wednesday intermediate class. I have been using Wednesday as a rest day and possibly should've done this last night. My back is feeling a bit fragile.

Nothing felt very good on my body but the class made my heart very happy, and this is the most important thing.

Class 26
Advanced with Meg

Tonight really tested my back. I wouldn't say it thrived but it survived. It feels a little niggly right now but it was quite fatigued going in to today's class. I've done a lot of classes in the past week and have been doing two pilates sessions a week with my physio while I try and build some strength while I'm painfree.

It was a tricky little class but a fun push. There are some shapes and lines that I just can't replicate (even a low version of). Pretty much all of my arabesque lines look wrong - I think it's because I don't have the strength, and I lean and twist. Or I lose turnout... I'm trying to build some strength and stamina so have been repeating allegro exercises and going in a second group when I can. It definitely felt a bit easier than it did last week.

Class 25
Intermediate 1/2 with Chihiro

Starting Sunday with a class usually leaves me feeling invigorated for the day. Today I was so tired that I needed a nap. 😂
.
We did a really long (and fun) combination at the end. I was so fatigued that I thought my legs were going to fail me in those final grand jetés.
.
In news - my friend Thomas has enrolled in the next Ballet Basics course. Pia pressure.

Class 24
Intermediate 2 and Advanced Coaching with Meg

This was the only photo I took today and I took it to tell @caseymcallan where I'd left her water bottle.

We danced for two hours and my legs and brain are dead. I think I did class quite adequately today. Nothing felt amazing, lots of things felt good and only a few things felt bad/awkward... So that's a win!

We've moved on from Don Quixote and are now learning a variation from La Bayadere - the one with lots of cabrioles. It was a lot for my brain but I kind of muddled through it. Would definitely like to revisit it at some stage.

I'm waitlisted for the coaching class next week. 4th on the list but have enrolled in the beginner 2 class as a back up.
