So here’s my hornpipe.

I’m aware that I lose all turnout and the ability to treble in the front left corner.  And of course my arms are flailing.  You can hear me yell watch out if you listen carefully haha

Please respect my teachers’ and my choreography.  I’m already seeing other people’s steps on instagram and youtube with pieces I know I came up with…so…try not to do that.
