When my weeks are busy I definitely need a lazy day off to recover.
Lots of coffee, lots of water, lots of food, lying by the fire, planning in my #bulletjournal, spending time with my love, calling my family — these are just some of the things I enjoy doing on my lazy days of recovery.
The past few weeks have been crazy at work for a lot of us. I am working on Pina Bausch's The Rite of Spring and William Forsythe's In The Middle, Somewhat Elevated. I am very grateful to be able to learn both! Though, I am particularly loving the challenging work of William Forsythe — I'm learning so much within each rehearsal.
I enjoy the work load, but the challenging part has been the order of rehearsals. We spend all day barefoot and hunched over during Sacre and then without even a five minute break have to jump into a completely opposite style of pointe shoes and high and long extensions in In The Middle. We have been having Sacre in the morning and right after lunch, and then In The Middle during the later evening rehearsals.
It's a struggle to maintain a healthy body during times like these, but it is all part of being a professional dancer in a mixed rep company. I am keeping strong and healthy during these days despite this challenge .
