While I’m sitting here….

Things in dance vs things in violin vs things in fencing: In fencing if I’m injured or I fuck something up a bit, I can do something about it. Parry, move, retreat, something. Usually. In violin playing… If I fuck up I can just fudge through it and it’ll sound okay. In dance? YOU CAN’T FUCK THIS SHIT UP!!! At least I don’t know enough to fumble my way through it. I also can’t fake it if I have an injury like I have done so many times in fencing. Cracked rib? Plastron. Hand surgery? Fight left handed, no off hand, keep it behind my back. Sprained ankle? Lotsa sword work. Simple rolled ankle in dance? I am fucked. This is truly the challenge I needed but OMG I look awful.
