Signed to yoga 2017

Så nu är det gjort. Jag har anmält mig till Janne Kontalas yoga retrit Le Tardoun 2017. Det är ett årligt uppkommande läger, som jag alltid velat gå på. Nu händer det! Jag åker den 26 juni och kommer hem 1 juli. Lägret är alltså ordnat i Frankrike, uppe i alperna. Med sällskap av min yoga lärare Emma, kommer vi åka med flyg till Nice, och sen med bil upp till alperna. Även om det är många månader tills det händer, är jag väldigt ivrig! Jag har aldrig i mitt liv varit på något liknande.

So now it’s done! I’ve signed myself to Janne Kontala’s yoga retreat Le Tardoun 2017. This is a yearly done yoga camp. I’ve always wanted to go there, and now it’s gonna happen! I’m leaving 26:th June, and coming back 1:st July. This yoga camp is located in the alpes in France. With company of my yoga teacher Emma we’re flying to Nizza, and then going by car up to the alpes. Even if it’s far ahead to this event, I’m really excited! Cannot wait actually! I haven’t in my life been to something similar to this!

Omat Polut

Hej, det var ett tag sen sist, och mycket har hänt. T.ex. är evenemanget ”Omat Polut” alldeles bakom hörnet. Det kommer ordnas i morgon, på lördag! Jag vet inte hur mycket jag har berättat om detta för er, men Omat Polut är alltså ett evenemang som erbjuder elever i Lovisas dansinsitut att göra egna koreografier. Vi har haft några månader på oss att förbereda våra danser, och varje elev har fått välja en egen mentor som skall hjälpa under progressen.  Jag gjorde klart min koreografi igår, och skall visa den åt min danslärare i dag kväll. 

Så imorgon händer det! Kläderna är alla valda och väntar på imorgon. Musiken jag har valt till min egen koreografi är Lindsay Lohan – Rumors. Denna sång rycker helt enkelt med, och det har väldigt meaningsfull lyrik.

Jag har faktiskt ingen aning om ifall någon kommer filma detta evenemang, men om jag kommer över något filmklipp så publicerar jag det här!

Hiya, there’s been a while, and I haven’t updated you near enough. Many things has happened, for example is the event ”Omat Polut” on the corner. The show is gonna be on Saturday (meaning tomorrow).  I am not sure if I have told you much about this for you, but this event is meant to offer students in Lovisa’s dance school to make own choreographies. We have had couple of months time to prepare, and we were able to choose an own mentor  for each every one of us. I finished my dance in fact yesturday, and I’m gonna show the routine to my dance teacher today in class.

So tomorrow it is, and I’m quite nervous. The clothing is all done and ready. The music I have chosen is Lindsay Lohan – Rumors. It’s a very catchy song, with meaningful lyrics.

I am not sure if anyone is gonna take the choreographies on video, but if i get any video I will sure post it here.

three pairs of flatshoes – review

img_3063

These shoes were my very first ballet flats I’ve ever bought. They are natural white and I bought a good size. They are Pirouettes own brand, a shop you can find for example in Helsinki or Turku.

They have from the very beginning been very soft. As you can see in the picture and when you compare it to for example ballet flats in the second picture, you see the difference even with the eye. They are probably the most comfy shoes I own, and I like them very much. The only thing I find bad with these shoes, is that they’re not so steady when going up on relevé.

These shoes I bought recently, they are baby pink flat shoes and they are from the brand Sansha. These were a big mistake though, because I don’t like these at all. They’re made of a very thick fabric, witch makes them very very stiff.  It’s nearly impossible to show a nice arch in these shoes. They’re also very wide, and since i have a small foot, they are not the best for me.

These or the natural white shoes may be my favourite. I actually managed to buy these from a second hand shop! They are bloch nude shoes in my size. I really like these ones, especially because of the very good support they give when up on relevé. They also bend quite well, they are snug on the foot, a very slim model indeed and that’s why they’re  quite perfect for me.

The Snow Queen – a dramaturgy after H.C Andersen

Än en gång var jag i Helsingfors operahus på en balett, och min vän Anna var med. Denna gång var det Snödrottningen, en dramaturgi efter H.C Andersens saga.

”Vår berättelse utspelar sig i Helsingfors vid sekelskiftet 1800-1900. Den handlar om två barn i staden, Kai och Kerttu, och deras äventyr som påverkas av magiska krafter. Det krävs mycket mod av dem för att de skall klara alla livets kommande blundskär. Kerttus mormor har på en resa i Lappland köpt en vacker gammal spegel utan att veta att den inom sig gömmer Snödrottningens magiska krafter”

Denna balett blir min absoluta favorit hittils! Jag älskade allt med den. Kostymerna var väldigt fina, musiken var bra, koreografierna var fantastiska, själva berättelsen var medryckande, effekterna var imponerande och det faktum att det fanns en berättare som nu och då sa vad som hände, gjorde det tusen gånger lättare att hänga med.

Once again I was in the finnish opera house for another ballet performance. My friend Anna was with me. This time the performance was Snow Queen after H.C Andersen’s fairy tale.

”Once Upon A Time…

Our story tells the thrilling adventures of two children, Kai and Kerttu, who live in Helsinki at the turn of the 19th century. Their encounters with magic powers lead them to discover the bravery needed to live a life full of joy and emotion. Kerttu’s grandmother has bought an old mirror in Lapland, unaware that it contains the magic of evil Snow Queen” 

This performance has to be my absolutely favourite until now. I loved everything about it. The music, the choreografies, the costumes, the story, the mindblowing effects and the fact that there was a person who was reading up the story while it was running. This made it so much easier to catch up with the story!

From our sitplaces, we had ordered some relatively cheap tickets, but still the view was fantastic. We sat on the 3rd floor in the middle.

I bought the story for 5 euros. Partly because it included a poster witch I really wanted.

My friend Anna was with me

And our snack looked like this. We both had one macaroon, and we both agreed it was the most delicious macaroon we have tasted.

Alice in wonderland at the finnish opera

Förra lördagen var jag på finska operan i Helsingfors och se Alice i underlandet. Pjäsen var väldigt bra gjord, och där var också barn med och uppträdde. Det var en riktigt rolig pjäs med humor i. I början fokuserade man främst på själva storyn, men längre in i showen koncentrerade man sig allt mer på dansen. I slutet av akten visade dansarna riktigt svåra saker. Det var en riktigt fin upplevelse!

 

Last Saturday I went to the Finnish opera to watch Alice in wonderland. It was a great experience. It was very well done and there was also children performing in the show. It was a really fun performance with humor in it also. The show started with more focus on the story than the dance, but as the show continued the dance take more and more part. At the end the dancers really showed of what they could do, witch you really couldn’t see in the beginning. It was a super great experience to get to see this show.
