So I am trying to work on the pirouette, as I said I would. The hardest part is the mental block about how rigid you have to be to do the pirouette. It’s perverse. From watching a pirouette, you feel like you ought to be able to sweep around like a scarf, but in fact you have to be like a lathe, as above… and you want to have a guy holding your knees straight the whole time because that’s, like, crucial. I still cannot remember to do this! Knneeeez!!!
