Today marks the end of an era. It was my last jazz (dance) exam (Advanced II). Now, technically, there is one further exam in the JazzAddict syllabus - Solo Seal. However, sitting it only crossed my mind for approximately one second. Probably less than one second if I'm honest. Because Solo Seal is a performance-based exam, which involves an amalgamation taught by the examiner. And I would also have to choreograph three dances and perform them in costume! And I'm not a performer by any stretch of the imagination. I wonder if that's because I'm so dissociated from my emotions? *shrug* Something to think about.
I'm going to be a ballet student *grin* Mostly I've had really positive responses when I've told people I'll be learning ballet, but I did have one person (female) comment that they thought ballet was for little girls. And this person is perfectly entitled to think that. But I think ballet is for everyone - female and male, young and old. To clarify, I'm only starting ballet technique next term. Seeing how I find it. And if I like it I might try and find a dance studio for next year that teaches syllabus ballet. I like working towards exams. It makes me feel like I'm making progress.
So, who thinks I'm mad?
