And today..

I'll be honest, nothing much happened today.
Just the usual jokings and whatnot.

But I came today to see Lika's friend, TimTam-Something (it's a Thailannese name, I can't remember!) playing the piano while Misaki danced. And she played for Jovian, Crystal (yes, I've misspelled her name all this while. Don't expect me to go back all the entries and correct it though. I'm too lazy to) and Sayaka's class too.

Oh, and turns out Lydia knows Burney too.
*Smacks forehead* How could she not? Her cousin is Melody after all..

Anyways, on to the videos..

Pivot Turns. Oh how I used to suck at it.. *shudders*
On the other hand, Jovian's "Eurgh!" at the end was just.. xDD!!

Sorry it's to the side.. Uh.. My bad. =p

I like Grade 4's Reverance. ^^

Because of The Last Post..

Because the last post made me think back and reminisce about the past, when me and my girls had to go to Taipan, KL, for Grade 8.
That was probably my first and last exam I'll take it in KL. *sniff*
I've just been taking classes since my group all left for their studies.

So I decided to make a tribute post of the videos I had taken during that time.
And also throw in whatever ballet videos that have impressed me.
So yeah, I guess you could say that this is a video post.

I'll explain about the videos as I go along.
Oh, and forgive the bad quality of the video, I recorded it on some cheap 'Bonuslink exchanged' camcorder..

1. The first one is before the exam, there was another class (can't remember what grade) that were having their exam before us (which would explain the out-of-place looking girl in red leotard and character skirt somewhere along the video), and after that would be the luch break. So this was what we did.

2. My parents were there with me for the exam. And due to anxiety, none of us had eaten/wanted to eat before our exam for fear that we couldn't dance properly. My mother though, would have none of that, saying that we'd better at least have something light before dancing. So she had my dad go down to buy a bun and a bottle of juice for everyone.
(The studio was upstairs, and downstairs of the studio was Taipan, and it had all kinds of foodstores and whatnot.)

3. Then just before their exam, Alithea decided to do a (really) short 'interview' of Terina.

In case you couldn't catch what she was saying, here's the caption:
Alithea: Ok Terina, how are you feeling right now?
Terina: I'm feeling very fine.. *bursts out laughing*
Alithea: Oh really?

4. And the last one: During the exam, Alithea was dancing in the exam room, Terina & Naomi were talking to each other, and Brenda was fumbling in her bag before fishing out her digital cam and doing something to it. Oh, and Gino makes an appearance. ^^

And then there was a video tribute that I made, consisting of all the videos you saw, plus some pictures I took that day.
In case you don't want to see a repeat of the videos (and to save space), I'll post the link to the video instead, so you can go see it only if you want to. =3

Ballet Memories

And then there's this video, also a flashback one, that I find carries somewhat the same message that I was trying to convey in my tribute (if not better):

It's so nice to travel with your friends ne?

Watch the video below and tell me what you think.

That girl is in Grade 5.
And look at her developpe and technique! O.O
She's GOOD. Sort of embarassing really, for someone like me.. T__T

You know what? I think I'll stop here.. Before I eat everyone's bandwidth.. =3

Gino Is Not Here This Week And..

Hmm.. Let's see.. Apart from Lika's usual boob-grabbing on everyone (and a close attempt on me, wtf),  yesterday was.. slightly boring.

Lika also showed me Fouettes Ronds De Jambe En Tournant, which she learnt from Youtube. And well, let's just say that at least we didn't have to do triple pirouettes in one go.
I haven't exactly tried it out yet, partly because practially the entire Intermediate class were watching as Lika gave me a short demo on how it was.

That, and at home, I would've swept a lot of things off tables and such if I were to try that in my room.

But I think Lika was talking about this video though:

P/S: LOL at the girl in the back, waving and all. xDD!

If she was, then.. Well.. I guess I have to work hard. Very hard.
Wai does my work have to be so weak? T___T (Especially pirouettes & pointe work??)

And while I was browsing Youtube for RAD videos, Guess what I found?

F.A.B! Intermediate girls and Lixian, you should know this! ^^

Ah.. I still remember this post on F.A.B.. ^^

Anyways, back to yesterday's events.

We were both looking at the syllabus book after finding out about the Fouette, and there was an exercise called Chaines (sha-nay), but we didn't know how to do that.
So Lika made up her own syllabus.
And it involved swinging invisible 'chains' first from your right hand, then left, then both, and continued by swinging 'chains' from other parts of your body.
Of course, we (I) didn't act out the 'other parts'.
I'll leave that for you to imagine.

We even put on the music, got ready our invisible chains, and began 'swinging' them in time to the music.
By the time we finished swinging the two 'chains' at once, we were too doubled up laughing to continue.
Too bad we didn't get a video of that. Or not.

I didn't get to take much videos & pics, and even those I took were mostly everyone fooling around.
And attempting to do pointe work. xD

Don't ask. I dunno what she was trying to imply either. xD

Tze Ping modelling Lika's bag.

Um.. Couru anyone? =p

Chia Hern mimicking Seow Hui's Couru. xD

Hah! Didn't think I'd leave this out didja? xD

Apparently, Jermaine found Lika hilarious. xD

Jocelyn & Jermaine. Loving sisters y/y? xD

And now to the videos! ^^

Now how can I get an arch like Tze Ping's? *___*

P/S: No idea why Chia Hern was smilling throughout the entire video. xD

Aaaannndddd... Lika makes an appearence!

And of course, the goofy-ness that is our senior students. xD
