Dance class was interesting tonight, to say the least. I showed up at the appointed time to discover that my CD (my beloved CD!) would not play on the library’s CD player. I had already changed clothes at that point, but I ran out of the library wearing my leggings, exercise top and socks…yes, socks, no shoes. I had to pick up my laptop to play the music for us. I made it back in about three minutes right before the rain hit!
I expected maybe two ladies, but there were five of us! Successful first meeting in my opinion! I hope the ladies enjoyed class as much as I did. It was so refreshing to have adult company at the end of a long school day.
Now I have homework of my own to prepare for next week’s class. 🙂 Practice makes perfect!
After a really long, busy week, I am still looking forward to starting up a belly dance class this coming week. I am very sure this class is going to kick my butt—hard. I am equally sure it will be worth it!
I took belly dance lessons (Egyptian style) many years ago, but I have such happy memories from that class. I still have my CD of songs we used for everything. I can still picture our warm-up stretch routine when I hear that first song. The bad thing is that I do not know—and have never known—the names of the songs on my CD. The good thing is that I have a copy of that beloved CD even though the old one was damaged.
I’m so excited about the class that I even dug out my hip scarf! It has been with me through every challenge I’ve faced over the last fifteen years (or more!). I guess it means more to me than I ever imagined it could. It symbolizes things I’m not sure I can name, but the immediate one that comes to mind is joy.
