Exam Prediction: Late January

Whoops, missed an exam prediction there! I’ll be honest though, this past month back I haven’t been feeling the most confident about ballet. I don’t know if it’s because we took the couple weeks off there, or when I went in to film everything and it… didn’t go the best. I’ve been getting more confident and stronger since then, but I’m definitely still not at 100%.

 

Current Progress

Since the last exam prediction (way back in December), we’ve now learned completely everything, decided on our variation, and have been running things non-stop in pairs and solos as required. I’m definitely more comfortable with everything but still a bit apprehensive about the pointework.

 

Things to Work On

Honestly at this point the only thing I’m actually concerned about is the fouettés in pointe enchaînement 3. Everything else I can either do relatively well, or fake it to look like I’m just having an off day of not doing it well. I’m low-key worried that I won’t be able to do at least 10 really crappy fouettés and churn them out there, because if I don’t get them, I won’t pass my exam. Minor details though.
