Only in ballet: “Since it’s cold, it’s OK to keep your clothes on.”

Those were the words Mrs. O said this morning.

And with good reason: It was frigid in the studio where we have class. In Alabama, we have bi-polar winter weather. Two days ago, the high was 74 and humid. The studio felt sticky.

Today, highs in the low 40s, but this morning it was in the 30s with snow flurries and sleet. And our heating and cooling unit was on the fritz (no pun intended considering its Nutcracker time).

Since it was a company level class, normally the warmups must come off before we hit center. Today, Mrs. O left the warmups can be worn option, of which most of us took advantage of it.

It was a fairly easy class considering we start rehearsing at the theater tomorrow. I got praise during a jete combination during petite allegro and that NEVER happens. It was a fun class.

We also had our final rehearsal in the studio this after (it was Act I). Party scene went really well. Things always seem to come together right when we hit the theater.

Of course, with the new sets, it will be interesting to see how things go once we’re there.

Theater week actually begins today. I’m about to head out to help with the sets. I’m excited. This is my favorite week of the year.
