No Chicken Wings!

Well, ballet class is back in full swing and I'm loving it more than ever! We had to switch class times and teachers to accomodate everyone's schedules but I'm loving our new teacher, Gloria, more and more each week. She's everything a ballet teacher should be-- she's always telling me to "tuck in my tootsie," and she constantly warns us about our "chicken wings" (which result from being so focused on what your feet are trying to do that your arms take the non-ballerina shape of poultry). All of us in the class are total beginners, so each lesson is a new adventure where we try not to trip over ourselves (or each other) and die. Seriously fantastic.
