I started dancing when I was 3. I took a ballet and tap class. My favorite part was the parasols we got to spin. :) My teacher's name was Mrs. Comb...yes, I still remember her name. I immediately knew that dance was my thing. If you know anything about dance....just like any other hobby/activity/sport it is costly and time consuming (costumes, classes, driving, etc). Well, I didn't get to always dance. I could do it sometimes. Then by high school, I had done various styles and had many years of enjoying it. I was on the drill team/dance team for 2 of my 4 years in high school (I wasn't allowed to do all 4- my mom and dad worked many hours). I danced some in college and almost double majored (early childhood and dance) but it would've added a couple years to my undergrad....and I was not wishing to do that.
As an adult I was in and out of dance classes as I had time between working and life. I have always loved dance. I am not great at it, just love it. Anyway, I am a big fan of all dance shows....and if you are too, the picture below will freak you out as much as it did me!!!
I had the opportunity to do Louis Van Amstel's dance/exercise class called LaBlast in ABQ. He was awesome! I had the best time and almost died...but I think I smiled the whole time. He was super nice and let us all take pics with him. It was a master class...but I haven't danced in a few years...hence the almost dying part. I didn't care. I heard he was coming and I signed up because I had to do it! I mean how many times would I get that opportunity, right?!?!
Well all I have to say is, put yourself out there. It is worth it.
