Bye, Kori! Hi, Practice!
I had my last session with Kori this afternoon. She’s happy with my progress. She says I improve every time she sees me and I feel the same. I’m much more confident today than I was 3 weeks ago. I’ve got my notes and pictures to view and Mark and Dale will be helping. I think I’ll be fine.
Today we worked on walking, my stage entrance with poses, flipping of the hair and my curtsey! We had a good laugh because she confirmed what I had felt; my previous curtsey looked awkward and manish. Pretty funny when I told her that a male bodybuilder taught me how to curtsey.
Given the circumstances and time limits, posing is going very well. Of course I still have a few things to work on. I’m leaning back when I walk, so I have to remember to stand tall, but not back. I’ve got to perfect my turns and getting my back big. I did a lot better with keeping my arms at the right distance from my body. I also got a thumbs up on my side pose! YAY! I felt good about it as well. I’m feeling pretty good, especially considering I’ve only just started real practice only 3 weeks ago. Not to mention, all my old habits and bad lessons had to be undone. That’s been the biggest challenge.
She suggested I video tape posing practice next time. That should help me more. If I feel like I need to work on something with her I’m going to get back with her. I think I’ll be good. I feel we’ve covered everything, now it’s just a matter of practice makes perfect. Wow, I just noticed leaving these people I rely on is getting easier and easier. *wink*
More posing Saturday. Hopefully I’ll get video.
