Pull it together.

Ms. Lori choreographed a dance for the girls who are at festival, so I didn’t expect her to be in class yesterday since the girls left Wednesday. But she stayed behind and took off today instead, thus being in class to teach us.It was so great having her, especially with the recital piece and more…

It’s heart.

In the V’s class yesterday, my IV’s teacher came in to run the festival piece with the girls going one more time before they leave Wednesday. She also teaches the Advanced classes and choreographed a few pieces for festival this year.The rest of us that were there got to watch, which was about half the…

Tuesday

I think I’m really going to like Tuesday’s class. Ms. Alex knows just how to kick our butts and really work our technique to get to those muscles that are pivotal and sometimes neglected.I left class sweating like a pig and excited for the next time we have class. Most of my thoughts on the…

Movin’ on up.

Vulnerable.

“Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”Stay with me here.I’m not trying to throw religion in your face or anything, but this scripture I memorized as a child further emphasized my point I’ll be trying to make in this blog. Yesterday I was texting with a friend who is facing…
