Last night I went for an original work out! You might remember back in May I danced in a recital with some other women. It was a blast, but I definitely had my moments of frustration and thoughts of, “I don’t think I can do this.” But, I did. Various nights this summer, the choreographer, Teri, has put together workshops so that we can keep dancing without the pressure of performing.
My schedule finally let me get there last night and I’m so glad I went. She held both a Contemp and Hip Hop workshop, but I only did the hip hop. Not that I consider myself very “hip hop,” but the dances are much more similar to poms and I just do better with that! It doesn’t require as much contortion. Well, it isn’t really contortion, but when you’re “old” like me, it starts to feel that way!
I was way proud of myself. One of the biggest struggles I had this winter/spring with dancing was MEMORY. Oh my gosh. The frustration was incredible. But, last night, I’m proud to say I easily caught on! That’s more like it! It got pretty schwetty, but it was a blast. I love work outs that don’t really feel like work outs!
Teri always videos the final product so we have something to show for our hard work. Here it is! Enjoy!
