Anna walked into her classroom. She smiled, ready to start teaching. She plugged in her computer and stretched a bit before the students arrived. She finished and waited patiently.

((CLASS IS NOW OPEN))

Zuri walked in nervous, wondering if she should wear her nice shoes or her bad shoes. She was wearing a black leo and pink tights. She saw her teacher and walked over, 'hi, My name is Zuri," she said.

((Zuri))

Anna smiled. "Hi Zuri, I'm Miss Victoria." She said. "Please roll up your convertible tights and put on regular ballet shoes." She put on her own ballet shoes and waited for the rest of her class.

"Ok, Miss Victoria," Zuri said. She placed her stuff by the mirrors and put on her ballet shoes. She began to stretch to get ready for today's class. She got into her straddle and rolled into center splits. After that she took her spot at the barre.

Genevieve walked into class a little nervous. She greeted her teacher and got ready for class. She rolled up her convertible tights and put on her ballet shoes like her teacher had instructed Zuri. She greeted warmed up with Zuri.

Zuri continued to warm up wondering if this would be like her pointe class at home. She did some plies and said hi to Genevieve. She wanted to be in her pointe shoes and be on her toes like at home.

Ri 16

Ry walked into class. "Hello Miss. I'm Ry," She introduced herself to the teacher. Ry waited with her bag to see what the teacher wanted her to put on.

((Class))

Anna nodded her head to the student. "I'm Miss Victoria. Please roll up your convertible tights and put on regular ballet shoes." She told her. She made a mental note to ask for a chalkboard so she wouldn't have to keep repeating herself. She looked at the girls and consulted her list. They were missing at least one. "Ok please take out your blue theraband and raise your hand if you have your pointe shoes." She instructed, taking out her own theraband.


message 10: by Ri (new)

Ri 16

Ry did what the teacher asked. She pulled out her flat shoes and rolled out her tights. A second later she pulled out her Theraband. Ry raised her hand when the teacher asked about pointe shoes.

Zuri raised her hand while walking to her bag to get her theraband. "Um, Miss Victoria my theraband is pink," she says hoping that it would be ok.

Genevieve took out her theraband and stood quietly. She had not yet achieved her pointe shoes.

((Class))

Anna walked over to a bucket and pulled out an extra blue theraband. "The color represents the amount of resistance. You may use this theraband." She said, handing it to Zuri. "Please gather in the center of the room and sit down." She said, walking to the center and siting with her legs in front of her.

Zuri  (thegirlwithunicorns) | 848 comments Mod
"Thank you Miss Victoria" Zuri said. She wanted to tell her that her's was one that she designed because, her uncle owns the company but, she walked to the center of the room anyway.


message 14: by Ri (new)

Ri Ry quickly followed the instruction. She walked to the center and sat down. Ry stretched her legs in front of her. She press her theraband on her lap and made sure it was all nice and neat.

purplebookworm (puplebookworm) | 671 comments Mod
Anna took theraband and put it around both of her feet. She pulled so there was tension. "You are going to go Flex, Demi Point, Point, Demi Point, Flex. Ok? Any questions?" She asked she wanted to make sure the girls understood. "You are going to do this 30 times." She said.

Genevieve sat down and listened as Miss Victoria taught them how to use their therabands. She did as she was told and nodded her head. She waited for the next instructions.

Zuri did as Miss Victoria said, working very hard to amke sure sh was perfect, when she was done she waited for everry one else to be done.


message 17: by Ri (new)

Ri Ry nodded. She did this at home too. Ry wrapped the theraband and did her 30 reps carefully and well. She waited silently for the next instruction.

Anna nodded. "Good. Now your going to go Demi Pointe, Pointe, Demi Pointe, 30 times." She said, doing them herself to show the girls. She watched as the girls did as they were told, giving out corrections as needed.

10
Genevieve did as the teacher had told her. Her legs were used to these by now. She did these every day, back at home.

Zuri did as the Miss Victoria said, just trying to be better then everyone else.


message 21: by Ri (new)

Ri Ry did as the teacher said. While she knew this stuff was very important, she hoped they would move on to other things soon.

purplebookworm (puplebookworm) | 671 comments Mod
Anna was satisfied. "It is very important that you practice these every night. I'll add some more with your theraband work next time but that it for now. I also was you to spell the alphabet with your feet, not legs. The last thing you need to do every night are some crunches and planks to strengthen your cores. If you want to be an overachiever, you can strengthen your arms to." She said. "Now please put on your pointe shoes if you have achieved them. If not, stay in your ballet shoes. When you are done, put both hands on the barre and face the barre." She said. She put on her pointe shoes and waited for the rest of her students.

Genevieve stood up and walked over to the barre. She stayed in her ballet shoes. She hoped the other girls wouldn't mind. She was glad this was a small class. That meant that they would get more attention and would become even better. She took her place at the barre, ready to start whatever it was they were doing.


message 25: by Ri (new)

Ri 16

Ry quickly walked over to her bag and put on her best pointe shoes. They were at the perfect time to use. She quickly walked to a good spot on the barre and faced it, eager to begin.

purplebookworm (puplebookworm) | 671 comments Mod
Anna nodded. "Before we begin traditional barre and floor work, we will do some relevas (idk how to spell that). We will do 64 counts of plain relevas, 64 counts of plié relevas, 16 counts of one footed relevas - each foot -, and 16 counts of plié relevas. You may begin." She said. She k ew this stuff was boring, but they needed to do it so they won't get hurt. They would do the fun stuff later.

Gosh, this class is so boring, Zuri thought, she did these everyday in her dorm to her favorite song, She did them as perfectly as she could make the.

Genevieve sighed and did her relevas. She hoped they could move on soon.


message 29: by Ri (new)

Ri 16

Ry diligently started doing her releves. Although not people thought releves were boring, she actually enjoyed them. Ry continued on without a bad thought in her head.

Anna smiled. "Sorry guys. I was told to do that with you guys at least once. Now, each week I'll give you one more theraband exercise then we'll do the fun stuff. I want you to do your pliés now. Two Demi into a grande for each position. Please begin."

Yay pliés, Zuri thought, she relized her turnout was not very good so, she quickly changed it.


message 32: by Ri (new)

Ri 16

Ry quickly turned to pliés. She started her pliés. Ry pitched forward a little bit in her grande plié in fourth. She continued her pliés after rising from fourth.

Anna watched the girls. "Now tondus." She said. "Face the wall, right hand on the barre, fifth position. Tondu to the front 3 times, bring your foot up and place it in the back. Tondu to the side close front, to the side close back, to the side close front, bring it up and close back. Tondu to the back 3 times. Bring it up and place it back in the front. To the side close back, to the side close front, to the side close back, bring it up and place in front. Squeeze sou sou. Soutinu, and repeat on the other side. Everyone got it?" She asked. She hoped she didn't go to fast. Tondus had always been her personal favorite.

10
Genevieve nodded and began her Tondus. She kept up very well and remembered this combo from home.


message 34: by Ri (new)

Ri 16

Ry quickly started doing the combination. It was different than her one at home, so it was taking a bit to get used to the new combinations.

Zuri began and did it to the beat of her favorite song because, at her studio they all got ipods and did the combinations to a song different from someone else.

Anna nodded. "Good! Now Rond de Jambes. Feet in first, right hand on the barre. Right foot, front, side, back, close. Front, side, back, close. Front, side, close, close. Front, side, back, close. Front, side, back, close. Fondue front, side close, close. Repeat in the back. Turn around and repeat, left hand on the barre." She said. She didn't think this stuff was too hard but she didn't know.


message 37: by Ri (new)

Ri 16

Ry worked really hard and continued on to rond de jambes. She thought about all her technique. Ry hoped they got to pointe soon.

Genevieve did her Rhond de Jambes. She liked barre work. It was pretty hard to mess things up at the barre.

Zuri dod her Rhond de Jambes, she hated barre work and just thought about how perfect she looked.

Anna thought. "Moving on to Developes. (It's either Develope or Adagio. I get so confused XD) Feet in first, right hand on the barre. Tondu to the front and close. Bring your leg up into passé. Extend your leg to the front. Hold it for two counts then slowly bring it back down. Repeat to the side and back. When you bring it down in the back, go into sou sou. Sountinu, and repeat on the other side." She said. They were almost done with barre work.
