Youuuuu guuuuuuuuuuuys! This is my last week of dance class before the schools close for the summer! As of next week I get to attend some awesome workshops instead though! Woopwooooop!
I am really starting to feel a wave of nostalgia coming on; tomorrow is my very last hiphop class with my performance group! I’ve been dancing at that studio for 8 years, joining the performers a mere 3 years after starting out. They’ve been like family to me and my experience there has drastically helped improve my choreography skills. I was allowed to teach a lesson for practice, learned a lot about stage presence by performing and picked up on urban dance skills that, in retrospect, definitely formed my passion for jazz and modern. What’s more, if it hadn’t been for them, I would’ve never pulled my dissertation performance together; they were my dancers, my performers, my number 1 critics (I will write extensively about that when the time is right 😉 )
As tradition has it, a leaving dancer must bring in a baked good to help ease the pain of losing a fellow friend. 🙂 I’ve been wracking my brain for ideas all day, and have decided to buy something delicious to take with me, as my baking skills often fail me, although I luuuuurv to bake (I don’t get much more practice than the annual Christmas cookie bake-a-thons, but hopefully that will soon change!). More about tomorrows class on Thursday..
Today was also my last regular class at my other dance school before the workshops start, as on Friday I am going to a very special concert and will not be able to go to barre à terre and jazz! So today, I was extra jazzed for a double jazz power session! 😉 The classes were both amazing, teaching incredible choreographies and offering me great advice for the future. It was a great way to end the dance semester!
Last night I prepared a delicious portion of Creamy Earl Grey Oats for sustainable energy. Yumm! I think I might have overdosed on the chia this time though..oh and I forgot the vanilla! Oh well..I used some maple syrup instead 😉 I have to say, they were absodoodally scrumptious and extremely filling!
So that’s all for now folks! Will be back tomorrow with more nostalgia and a new recipe! Also, stay tuned if you want to learn some Swiss german!
With love and nail polish, Anoushé xoxo
