Yay! We made it through the first week of dance. The first week is always the craziest, everyone one is trying to make sure their in the right class, lost of people have questions, the waiting room is packed, and most of the classes don’t start right on time. But that’s totally normal and it kind of adds to the excitement of your first week back to dance after the summer!
This year is going to be amazing! It’s my senior year and I decided to go all out at take a bunch of classes. I’m currently taking five classes: tap, jazz, hip hop, ballet, and lyrical. So that’s five dances in the recital. Plus a friend and I might be doing a contemporary duet together so that would six, and if I do a senior dance then that would be seven dances. What?! That’s crazy, but really exciting!
It means a lot of costumes, probably some quick changes, and the amazing memories I’ll have of this year with my dance family. And probably some crying at recital.
River and Sky are taking a bunch of classes this year too. River has tap, jazz and hip hop. And Sky has ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, and lyrical. Both of them are also assistants this year and I’m so proud of them. River helps with little girls hip hop and Sky helps with a little girls ballet and tap class.
Even though I’m a senior it does not mean I’m gonna stop dancing at the end of this year. Dance will always be a part of my life. I will always have dance and I am so grateful for that. At times it’s a great escape to just take your mind of things and a wonderful way to express your emotions.
I’m really happy and excited about this year and I can’t wait to see where it goes.
