Because you asked so nicely. Yeah, Mom, I know you asked too, but Mary actually asked first.

This is the Gr. III Cecchetti Arabesque Sequence that is danced “a mileu” (center floor). It is very slow, controlled, and extremely difficult! At least, I think it’s one of the harder exercises in Gr. III. It’s far from perfect, and I still struggle with some aspects of it – but … I’m so glad my exam is on Sunday morning and then I’m DONE with Gr. III and in the door for Gr. IV, the last of the “beginner level” work in the Cecchetti Method! YAHOO!!

The very last second is my favorite part of the video…. LOL…. I thought Royce had stopped filming….
