SuperDuper Flamenco Inspires the Hell out of Me
Today my flamenco class was great. I don't know why. Perhaps it is because she gave us a big rundown on the yearend show we will put on for the public. She told us about what each group of students will do. There are four groups... the newbies, our group who started in September, the advanced group and the super duper group... The super duper group are nearly professional.
Today after class I stayed to watch them for a few minutes. They were doing a dance with a sombrero (flat brimmed black hat) which was gorgeous... very showy, and very forceful at the same time. Flashing feet, squared shoulders. I believe they are going to do it as part of Ravel's Bolero... there will be much acting as if they were toreadors. It will be amazing.
We will have to work very hard. She told us what we will do, and there is a huge gap between that and what we already know. We will learn the first Sevillanas with arms... we can only do the feet now. We will learn the second Sevillanas with no arms. We havent started that yet. We will do the zapiatas with arms. We have JUST started on the feet. We will do the boleras with arms... that is coming along. We will do the Carmen with the fan. We havent finished that yet.
The list goes on! eep!! I do hope that I can practice my flamenco in my new shared studio. That my stomping doesnt drive anyone crazy... I am hoping there will be evenings that no one else is around so I can clack and stomp away.
Watching the super duper group of flamenco dancers is so inspiring. I want to dance like that, all proud, and almost arrogant. The fast feet and the chin held high. The elegant hand movements. It is so beautiful. I am already excited to invite people to see us dance. Even if they are not amazed by our group, they will be by the advanced and super duper group.
I am so glad I decided to learn this dancing.
back to work now,
Here is my horoscope for Tuesday, March 2:I wonder if that is about that Frenchguy... I totally was waffling on when I'd have time for him, but I AM busy. No, I don't think I'm interested, esp not now. Sigh.
First entry today was another letter to ob.
Haha! I decided to do a quiz from visiting Chaosdaily's diary, and hehe, I ended up as:
Well, I actually DONT have a weird affection for ice hockey (actually I admire people who can skate that well, but I hate the actual game... well at least the hockey rinks, and watching it on tv), so I AM the perfect person!! hehe... imagine, 64 possible answers, and I get CANADA!! That means i am living in the RIGHT PLACE!! :)

Haha! you KNEW I couldnt go to bed at only 5:30 am!! NO, i HAD to do the other quiz at that place, and the answer is totally right on. You should all go and do these totally cool quizzes! They are set up so that the possible answers bifurcate each time you answer a question, instead of having a whole page of set answers. Very cool. So as a book I am:
1 People have left cute, callous or caring comments on the wench's wordiness!!
