Updates and A New Adventure

My apologies for the radio silence for the past few weeks! I haven't had too much to report because we've been in the "calm before the storm," period of the fall session, gearing up towards preparing for our Christmas show. We just had auditions, and rehearsals will be starting soon.  Here comes the crazy! (In case you're curious, I didn't [have to] audition; they just throw me in the corps, which basically dances the entire show. It's exhausting but fun!)

I started up back on pointe again last week (I've been easing up to it so I don't irritate my foot), and did about half a class (both because of caution and comfort). I'm going to have to build up my pain tolerance again, it seems.

My poor, neglected RPs.

I have been up to some other shenanigans, though. One of my co-worker buddies has been taking aerial silks for several months now, and has been trying to convince me to try it out. A couple of weeks ago, I went with her to an open class and promptly discovered that while I have flexibility and leg strength, I have no arm or core strength. That's not stopping me, however, as I'm deeply intrigued by it all, so I'm doing an 8-week beginning aerial silks intensive starting next week! I am nothing if not insane (because its completely normal to not only start multiple rehearsals, but a whole other class as well). We'll see how it goes. Like I said, I have no arm strength and a sad amount of core strength, so I'm hoping to work on that (the core will definitely help with dancing, too).
