How the first month of the year is almost over, is hard to comprehend.
The holiday limbo period is over and everything is slowly falling into it’s pace – the daily grind is balanced with a dancing routine which I’m trying to settle into. Ideally, I’d love to get some dancing done in the morning as a start to the day and then after work in the evening. I am fully aware that the compromise in my commitment to becoming a more active and consistent dancer in 2018 is going to sacrifice that thing called social life. Meh.
Dancing is social as it is. It just shows that The Safety Dance is a dancers creed: “We can leave your friends behind. ‘Cause your friends don’t dance and if they don’t dance, well they’re no friends of mine.” I might simply not have time this year to waste with you unless dancing is involved.
Due to my rotating roster and unconventional hours (I finish work at 7PM, that is essentially when every dance-class in history starts), some of these classes will have to be a miss every now and then if my shift isn’t flexible.
Monday – 7.15PM Ballroom Technique & Styling Class, 8PM Individual Rehearsal or Dance Planning Meeting
Tuesday – 7.15-10.30PM Folk Dance Senior Group
Wednesday – 7PM Ballroom Technique & Styling Class, 8.30-10.00PM Open Social
Thursday – 7-8.30PM Bronze Group Class, 8.30-10.00 Open Social
Friday – 7.30PM Folk Dance Master Group, 10-12PM Open Social
Saturday – Private lessons
Sundays are at this stage free of any consistent dance commitment but will surely end up being, choreo days or further individual training or rehearsal. I’ll try to squeeze in morning barre classes or a classical ballet and/or jazz class here and there. Not to mention that I need to be consistent with my daily stretching. 30-45 min with a playlist should do the trick!
