Well, it was a level up from introductory. So it was level 1.
I found it more challenging but I was definitely able to keep up and I absolutely loved it.
Except for the stupid soutenu going to the left. I could do it to the right perfectly fine but I looked like a drunk lobster when I tried on the other foot in a combination.
The class only had about 8 or 9 people in it! Which was amazing. Seriously. This is coming from someone who takes beginner classes that are filled to the brim with like 20+ people, so it felt really personal and I got more corrections.
I took that class on a Wednesday night which is when I usually have jazz. But I craved ballet so much more than jazz I figured it was logical to take one more ballet class. So that’s 4 ballet classes a week now.
I feel like I’m getting so immersed in dance, and apart from seeing my dog at the end of the day it’s the one thing I really look forward to.
Also can we just take one moment to mentally frown at all the people who walk into a beginner class and start talking and then don’t stop talking when the teacher is teaching and act like they know exactly what they’re doing and mark the combinations with their hands and head tilts. And then if there’s a group of them like 1 or 2 will be good and the rest will be not good. Y’all are intimidating. Stop that.
PS I’m fairly certain my feet are getting stronger and more bendy. Yasss.
