Pas de Neuf
Well, it's that time again. That time when, like it or not (in it or not), everyone has to learn the choreography for the Summer recital. Tonight in pointe class we attempted the pas de quatre from Swan Lake (AKA "four little swans"). Except that there were 9 of us and we kept alternately squooshing one another and drifting perilously backwards.
Oh wait, no. I mean that we looked amazing. In fact, here is a video of us:
HAHAHAHAHA! What do you mean you don't believe me?
PS: looking at this video I see that our arms were all wrong, which explains the sqooshing to a certain extent.
