ASA Alumni Diary: College:1, Chloe:0

Today was not a good day. I have a group project for my theater class that is due in exactly a week. I emailed my group twice to figure out a time to work on the project, but not a single one of them responded. I talked to my teacher in hopes of an alternative way of contacting them, but he advised me to do the project by myself which consists of writing a rediscovered scene from a play and acting it out in front of the class.

Maybe that would be possible if I was a theater major, but I’m not.

Also, my rehearsals and dance classes did not go well either. I was just not mentally or physically prepared for ballet. I’ve tried all of the tips and tricks I know to make sure I’m on my leg and can remember combinations, but I still felt like I was struggling. The heat was also on which resulted in the studio feeling like 150 degrees.

Modern was slightly better, but it still wasn’t my best. Then rehearsal was rough. We have to do a drag pas de bourre sequence four times in a row while switching spots with our partner. It is very fast and in heels. I can’t walk in heels, so dancing in them has been a struggle in itself. However, it got slightly better by the end of rehearsal.
