My post today was before class. Class was Intense! With a capital I!
The class was Advanced Beginner. I took ballet in high school, one theatre dance class in college, and a recent ballet class to keep in shape. The website said that the Beginner class was for absolute beginners who had never danced before. That's not me. The next step up is the Advanced Beginner class.
That was no Advanced Beginner class! That was Intermediate to Advanced. She had us doing tour jetés and cabrioles. She'd tell us a sequence then show us quickly. She wanted port de bras in a full circle reaching to the wall, bending back as far as possible, away from the wall and to the ground.
If that was an Advanced Beginner class, I need an Intermediate Beginner class. But I stand by my first assertion. That was no effing Advanced Beginner class!
