I had another ballet class (different teacher, same studio) last night. I learnt something: I am distressingly bad at balancing. I was just like…worse than the majority of the class. Maybe it’s because I’m 5’11” and my centre of gravity is way up in the clouds. I actively tried to engage my core, I wasn’t flopping around up there… I just wobbled a decent amount.
I’ve heard that practicing balancing every day with your eyes shut on two legs and then on one leg helps. I guess I’ll do that. If anyone knows of any sneaky lil techniques you should let me know!
The struggle is real, friends.
On the upside, my arms looked really floaty and lovely when they cooperated during barre. Oh but then I looked like a starfish when I tried to alternate between a pas de chat and something else across the diagonal.
On a non-ballet note, work was completely shit today and I was unbelievably glad to be home. It’s now the weekend and I have ballet on Monday so that’s my silver lining.
