I like pretty things

dance dance dance piano dance

beethoven's 7th symphony second movement haunted me today. one day, I'll return to my first artistic love, the piano.

in the mean time, while i'm young, i'm going to dance my heart off. tonight i went to elementary ballet, and then hip hop for the first time ever.
the "popping" is odd, my body isn't used to it, i was kinda the stereotypical ballet dancer being all straight and stiff. but i think i can do it with time.

my adult ballet camp schedule arrived in email!  by sunday i will be taking a placement class and it starts!
Example schedule for Tuesday:
8:45 am camp photo, 9:30-11:15 Technique, 11:30-12:10 Pointe, 12:15-1 pm: Pirouettes, 1 - 2 pm Lunch
2 to 3:30 Repertory, 3:30 - 4:15 Stretch, 4:30 - 5:15 Foot class, 5:15 - 6:15 Physical Therapist Lecture

Oi.
I like pretty things

Movie: The Fall

Dobie is showing "The Fall" right now, it's an indie movie with Lee Pace, shot over 4 years in 18 countries... and it is visually stunning. I think Andy even likes it. And I liked it too.. it's odd, but worth watching.

The NYTimes critic hated it, but the readers all gave it 4 1/2 stars out of 5.  It's a fantasy/drama/sci-fi/meta film.

And it introduced me to Beethoven's 7th Symphony, 2nd movement.
