Summer LoA Update: #2 Dance Class

I danced for 16 years.  From age three to nineteen I took tap, jazz, ballet, modern and lyrical.  I taught some classes.  I loved being in the studio three to five days a week.

I stopped taking and teaching dance classes the summer of 1999.  It wasn’t some kind of life-altering experience like an injury that stopped me.  I was a college kid focused on other college-type things.  It took a couple of years for me to want to go back.

This summer I started taking tap class again.  I can’t believe I talked myself out of going back for so long!  It is so awesome being in the studio again!  My good friend quickly noticed a difference in my attitude.  “You’re just so much happier,” she told me.  I really am.

I’m enjoying taking class.  My original goal was to look into teaching, but I think that can wait.  I’ll be a student for a while and get my technique and skill back.  Maybe one day I’ll want to teach again; maybe not.  Right now, I’m just happy dancing.

  1. You go dancing girl! I’m so proud of you, reconnecting with something you love, especially something that brings you so joyfully and expressively into the body. AND I applaud your willingness to just take the classes, letting go of the need to plan next steps and higher levels (that’s how I interpret your allowing re: teaching, anyway)

    I needed to read this today, to let loose of all this goal oriented wedding planning shtuff.

    I am really digging your blog. Thank you so much!
