elementary ballet

i found myself bored at the barre today.. the moves were too.. elementary. i guess this is one way i know i've improved. beginning ballet bores me a lot, while elementary ballet bores me at the barre. intermediate ballet is challenging, but not impossible. one day... i'll move on to advanced ballet.

someone in class actually asked me to demonstrate a pas de bourree for her. so it is kinda nice though, to be the best in class. the only thing i had problems with is the turns. darnit. i hate labeling myself as a "jumper" not a "turner". i'm tempted to get a private just to work on my turns.

You should become a barre-tender. Yuk yuk.

I actually "like" being bored at the barre - it gives me time to relax into my warmup and try to be conscious of the things I might be doing sloppy because I'm bored.

Then again, I haven't taken a ballet class in over a year, so I'd get my ass kicked by a beginning class right about now.
