Channelling my inner femme fatale

Today in my ballet class our very talented pianist Jill played the Habanera from Bizet's Carmen ("L'amour est un enfant boheme, qui n'a jamais connu de loi/Love is a Bohemian child that has never recognized any law") for one of our centre combinations. Our teacher pointed out that this is a very sexy piece of music and that just maybe we should think about trying to convey that! So I attempted valiantly to channel my inner femme fatale into it. Unfortunately, there isn't much of a femme fatale IN there! But that is one of the fun things about ballet class: you get to be someone you're not. Compared to my ordinary everyday life, I was pretty femme fatalish. Or maybe just slightly ridiculous. But what the heck, it was fun. One more reason for you to take up ballet if you haven't done so yet!
