Back to Class

Tonight I went to my dance class. The class is every Wednesday. This summer was busy so I only went once in July and once in August. Before that, I hadn't missed a single class since December!

To say that I was a little out of shape or forgot a few moves would be an understatement. And to make it all the more difficult, a new girl had joined our class tonight. Now, having a new girl in the class might not seem like it would make the class harder, but it does. My teacher likes to show off. She likes to show that her class can do lots of things. Her class has endurance. Her class knows dance moves backwards and forwards. So whenever there is someone observing or trying out a class, the class is always more difficult. We end up doing 150 sit-ups instead of 100. Or we do dance moves leading on the left side instead of the usual right side.

It's confusing and tiring when I had been going to class on a regular basis, but having been absent from class for so long, I felt so out of shape and so confused. I'm glad its over and looking forward to going back next week. I love a challenge!

Kudos to you for going... and for not giving up when it was hard. What kind of dance do you do?

Chantal, you really should sign up! I started taking ballroom dancing when I was in my 20's and now in my 30's I take belly dancing :) I thought you knew that already, Michelle :)

You must feel invigorated after class. The best classes I have taken and have been ones where I kind of hated the instructor a little bit because they made it so tough - my booty appreciates it though!
