The End of New Years' Resolutions

Not mine — others'. Remember that Wednesday night class with 24 students? Last night it was down to fourteen: 10 women and 4 men. Most of these folk are regulars, with only a few I don't recall seeing before. I don't know whether to be saddened or relieved.

I still haven't been able to reproduce my one night of pirouette mastery. I think the key that night was an exercise where we did four quarter turns, two half turns, then two full turns. Still, I'm feeling much more stable, even though I felt pretty lousy in general last night (I think I'm coming down with something). Last night was also heavy on the relevés at the barre, so by the time we got into the center I was already a bit shaky and more than a bit sore. However, I feel like I'm making steady progress, and that's encouraging.
