Last night at ballet, I was reprimanded for "taking artistic liberties" with my hands. Excuse me? This is an adult ballet class, albeit intermediate in difficulty, at a mom/pop shop studio. This isn't fuggin' ABT people - there was a young woman next to me during barre work that almost knocked herself out, falling down from passe position. Yes, you heard me right, a PASSE. Fell. All the way down to the ground.

She clearly doesn't know her head from her arse, and I'm getting scolded for changing the configuration of my fingers during a jump combination? What is that?!
