Sunday was a long day at the studio, starting with company class at 10, rehearsal for second act variations from 11-1, then family scene rehearsal from 1-3.
I danced boy doll at the family scene rehearsal. I was doing pretty good, and felt confident going into the fast pirouette section of the dance. It was at that moment that I realized my ballet skirt was falling off. I didn't think I could make it through the entire dance without it getting in my way, so with everyone watching I tore it off and held it in my hand as I tried to pull of the pirouettes. As I started the jumps that came right after those fast turns I threw the skirt into the group of family scene children who were watching from the front of the room. I finished the dance, but with all the little kids laughing at me. Next time I'm not going to wear a skirt. Or at least make sure it's actually tied tight enough!
Why is it I can't seem to do anything at the ballet school without making a complete fool of myself?
