Don’t try this at home

Mr. James Rogers, ballet dancer with Kansas City Ballet, will not only be finishing up his first season this weekend but he will also be finishing up 1 season of doing Pilates and Conditioning with me every Monday!  I always held the 2:00 PM slot for him and he was here, rip – roaring – and ready to go!

I figured I had to challenge him for his last visit until August! Plus, he had an additional day off to recover so I gave him . . .

The S N A K E!

I attempted to show him until I realized that if I had my stomach probably would have landed and reverberated against the springs so I cued him instead.

James is performing this weekend in Jerome Robbin’s Interplay, Val Caniparoli’s The Lottery, and George Balanchine’s Theme and Variations!

Au revoir, James! Until August and we meet again for the 2017-2018 season!
