Front, center, step.
Watch the lines, clean them up.
Breathe, out, plie
Everything with purpose, everything with precision.
Relevé, en pointe, à plat.
The mirror is a guide, correct every imperfection.
Respirer, centrer, respirer
What you see is a fraction of what they see.
Attitude, demi-detourné, soutenu
Even a small shake can destroy everything.
Soutenu, breathe, soutenu
Don't allow yourself to come apart.
Tendu, soutenu, breathe,
Stumble and fail, doubt and fail.
En avant, jeté, en l'air.
Close your eyes so you don't flinch.
Glissade, en face, adage.
Back on your feet, back in the world.
Arabesque, sourire, salut.
Turn to walk away, don't stop smiling.
Breathe, step, think.
It's okay, everything's finished.
Breathe, breathe, shudder.
Let it out.
