Anyway, so I sent him off to work at 9am and then I got ready for my annual .....
This year we did pretty much the same thing we did last, but we added a few new things! We did T-shirts and we had a little showcase to show parents what we had been working on, and then we had a pool party! Many things went aray as they normally do, but it turned out good!
These are all the girls! I love you all!
- 1:00-1:45 Pilates
- 2:00-3:50 Ballet Technique
- 4:00-5:00 Ballet Repertoire
- 5:00-5:30 Dinner and Ballet Movie
- 5:30-6:30 Modern
- 6:30-6:45 Stretch and Goof off (basically stall till we got the guts to put our shoes on!)
- 6:45-7:30 Pointe Technique
- 7:30-8:00 Pointe Repertoire and rip our hair out!
Yeah.. that is a TON of dancing! The girls were so amazing about it though.. they were so tough! I'm so proud of all the hard work they did that week!
On Saturday we had our pilates as usual and then we had Shayla Bott come to teach us a master class. Shayla has been a teacher of mine off and on for a while and I value her SO much! She taught me so much about musicality and she has helped me get back into school and she is actually the one who referred me to Alexis for this job! I owe her so much so I was so happy that she was able to come teach my students and me!
We took our ballet dances from Paquita! We did the Mazurka and we also did the wedding variation on pointe.
This is me talking to the parents about how good their daughters were... I can't believe I started crying!
Then we had a pool party! (it was on and then it was off... and then back on again... crazy rainy day!)
Doing the Hundreds... actually slapping the water!
