Dancing Days

Today was the beginning of DANCE FUSION week at our studio. I was/am so excited to finally take class and actually dance.

Dance Fusion is a dance company out of California. They come every year to give the students... and teachers choreography and to challenge them in their technique. It is awesome opportunity as a teacher because we are there to "supervise" yet we get to take class for FREE!

At 9 am we started Ballet. At 9:05 I was already sweating. NO JOKING! For an hour we did ballet, then another hour of tap, then another hour of jazz, and another hour of turns and jumps. I left early. I figured I needed to save my muscles if I was planning to attend the rest of the week.
It was an extremely humbling experience. Let's just say I could not do anything without falling down or getting dizzy. It is crazy that it has been a year since I have really trained.

BUT!!! I am looking forward to the end of the week because my super sweet husband purchased a massage for me. WHOO HOO!

I will keep you updated on my progress and injury status.

I'm excited for your week of training and classes! It's a great opportunity to get back in the swing of something you love.

That sounds like so much fun. You will need the massage when the week is over! I was in 3 musicals in high school and show choir; I loved learning all the dances! My favorite was tap! I think it is so cool that you dance for a living (or teach)! Have fun and tell us all about your aches and pains this week!

You need to do this to prepare for "So You Think You Can Dance." I really want to see you on that show. You would inspire the world. Love you girl and hope your feeling better. I can not even imagine.
