So I am at CPYB (Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet) for 5 weeks!!! I just got here yesterday and last night was my first night. I get like really homesick and only really slept for about like 4 hours but its ok I guess. Today we have placement class for levels...i am kinda nervous but it will be fine. I actually went here last year so I kinda know how it all works. I have been without internet for about a week now so that is why I haven't been posting. I thought I was not going to have internet in the dorms but it turns out I do so I will try to post frequently! Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!

Water vs. Pointe Shoes

Today my water bottle spilled on the floor and my pointe shoes were on the ground and the box and a little bit of the shank got wet. These were brand new so I was kinda upset but it was alright. I wore them anyways today and they felt different and weird. I got 4 pairs of new shoes for my summer intensive and I was going to break this pair in before I went so this will just be my back-up pair. I still have my pair that I am using right now and going to wear for my recital this weekend so it will all be alright. I will right a blog post on it soon.

The water with the pointe shoes messes with the glue. The water loosens the glue and it just made my shoes feel weird. I have a hard shank in Russian Pointe Shoes and the water made it feel like a Flexible Medium shank and just now a supportive than they usually do.

Hope this blog post helps you if you ever spill water on your shoes. Water can help if you put a little bit on the sides if they are too tight like by your toes around the box. It can help but just be carful.

New Solo

So yesterday I learned my new solo for next year! I learned it in under 2 hours which is really fast. It lyrical but different then last years. Its to the song "Read All About It" and I really like it. It has ballet steps and technique which more contemporary and lyrical movement incorporated and I really like it and can't want to perfect it.

Well I haven't been posting for a long time now...almost two weeks. The sad part is I don't really have an excuse, I have been on summer so I can't blame school. Dance has been not too crazy but idk why I haven't posted just slipped my mind I guess. So this will be a very long post.

I went to Starbound last weekend in San Mateo and got an Elite Gold. I went as an Independent and I found out later that Independent entries cannot place in the Top 10 even though I got a score of 294.5/300. I should have placed I think 5th. Oh well, I felt like that was once of my best times doing my solo and that was also my last competition for this season and doing that solos so its was kinda sad. :(

Team Choreography:
Last night we learned a new dance for next year to the song "Bottom of the River" and we get to use a pier!! Its a really cool dance, it's contemporary and more hard hitting. So ya
