Last Sunday’s class turned out to be one of the better ones. I had tons of corrections and praises by my dance teacher (which feels awesome and you know it). I even managed to keep up with the petite allegro cum piroutte exercise, which even my teacher was pleasantly surprised! I had one of those ‘good turn’ days, if you know what I mean. My pirouttes and fouttes were all in control. Left side was being gracious too.
If you saw my previous dance post, where I asked about cracked toe nails, well, I’m still battling with it. It has now gotten to a pointe (pun fully intended), whereby I can feel it (the toe nail, duh!) moving every time I go up en pointe. I know it’s a bit gross, my apologies, but I seriously know not what to do with it. It is a ticking time bomb on my toe.
Anyway, we were told to do posse turns en pointe, and for some unknown reason, I tend to spin out of control! Not exactly falling down, out of control per se, but more of the speed of my turns. I can start out slow, but as I kept turning, I just keep going faster and faster even though I wanted to slow down so bad. It came to a pointe where I am actually scared for my life and actually heave a sigh of relief when I end! So if anyone experienced the same thing, please let me know how you rectified this. It happens on both my left and right side, even though my left is somewhat wobbly, thus, fearing for my life.
