I get to teach dance 4 days a week! The craziest thing though is that on those other 3 days a week I miss dance! I went and watched one of my friends teach on Friday of last week and it was all I could do to not get up and join the class! I don’t know why and I can’t explain it – even though I have tried a million times, but I just love dancing.
This is (hopefully) my last semester of school for my Dance Degree. I am so super totally excited to graduate! But, I am also sad. Once I graduate there won’t be even half as much opportunity to dance as I have right now. During the semester I get to dance almost 20 hours a week in my own classes and then teach about 15 hours a week. Once I’m done with school I’ll have to find a studio and those cost a lot more than school does (I know weird!) plus there’s no way I’ll get to dance at the same level of intensity, I just won’t have the time.
Every day is intensely special and I am thankful that I can nurture the attitude of enjoying every moment of class. Some days I’m exhausted and some days don’t go that great but I know that my days are numbered and I actively try to make the most of each of them.
I am beyond the point of dance just being a phase.
Dance is not something I loved and left in my childhood like so many.
I love it! It brings me joy!
And I don’t know what I’ll do once school is over but I’m trying to figure it out!
