Singapore Summer School

Im so sorry to only post this now, my laptop has got 'sick' and had sent to a 'hospital' in singapore; it has been living in oversea for a month..not sure when will be back as the doctor say they are waiting for the mainboard parts to arrive to do a big operation..sigh..

Anyway, about the trip to singapore in one month ago, its a fantastic experience. Dancing from day till evening, and went shopping at night time although the legs are sore and tired. ^^

However, i got few bruises on my knees when i came back. Its mainly because of the 'knee sheene' (turning by using your knees) in the columbia dance. In details, we actually have to jump down onto the knees and turn in a very fast tempo. In worse, our instructor, Miss Nikki, make us repeat this particular steps so many times until all of the dancers are turning in the same speed..And thats why my knees are having more bruises everyday when im in singapore.

On the other hand, the classical ballet session on the morning time will always be the session where my legs get real sore. The lesson was only 3 hours, but the exercises given was not easy. In fact, its quite exhausting..maybe i have not enough stamina training. On the 3 hours lessons, we have to do pointe work (where ballerinas stand on just their three toes by wearing the special shoe), repertoire (a small dance on pointe), allegros (big jumps and petit ones), pirrouettes (the turning on just a leg), and also barre work. I need to build up my stamina in order to join next year =P

Another class i participate in the summer school is the modern jazz class. The class was awesome, the warm up we had is quite different. We did seat ups in different position =) The most important is the dance Miss Michelle choreograph is so unique, although its quite fast and not-so-easy. But its fun.
