Even though I constantly set goals, I always make a point to have New Year’s resolutions.
One of my new year’s resolutions is to go see more art as well as learn about it (whether it means a ballet, an art museum, a play, an orchestra). So far I have seen three live ballets: The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, and most recently, Giselle. I am super excited because I just purchased tickets to go see the ballet “Romeo & Juliet” and I purchased tickets to go see the YAGP Gala.
My second New Year’s resolution is confidence because it is something that I have always struggled with. I am naturally a rather shy person but once I get to know you I become comfortable and “normal”.
As far as my New Year’s resolutions for dance go, I want to make writing down the corrections and combinations that I am given a habit. I have a notebook and I sometimes write them down but I do not do it consistently.
Another dance goal of mine is my releve (in other words what my feet look like when I stand on my toes). I have naturally arched feet but I have been working on my feet quite a bit. This has helped the arches in my feet to become more defined. Nevertheless, there is room for improvement. I am wanting the arch of my foot to be in line with the tip of my toes. This is what my releve looks like right now:
As you can see the arch of my foot is behind my toes. This is what I want my feet to look like:
Notice that the arch of her feet is right above her toes.
I do not own the photo of Romeo and Juliet or Yana Kudryavtseva.
