A Temporary Break

Posted in Religion on November 18, 2010 by mmeeviloverlord

You wouldn't believe how sad I am right now. Really. Okay, I'm not really at my lowest point, but I'm sad. Some respect here please. A couple minutes' silence.

I just came from my last dance class for the next month-and-a-half.

I know that really doesn't seem all Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but maybe you'd understand if you knew me. I LOVE my dance class! There are so many elements about it that I love, that I'm going to miss.

I'm going to miss my instructors. They're the ones who keep us all going. Even when the world goes black owing to the amount of pressure you're putting on your 'core', they stand beside you and tell you to keep breathing, to not lose concentration, to keep smiling. They push you to your extreme and get the best out of you. There was a time when I couldn't do développés (pronounced de-ve-low-pays) without using my hands to support my legs, and now I don't need to do that at all. I've grown as a dancer thanks to my instructors and I'm going to miss them a lot!

I'm going to miss seeing those people twice a week – people I've been with since I started my classes, people whose names I don't remember even though we've been in the same class for three months, people who exchange smiles and feel comfortable with each other knowing they share that same passion for dancing. Maybe I won't really miss them much, but a little, yes, I will.

I'll miss doing those workouts, the chaînés (pronounced shay-nays), those horrible pirouettes – every single things. The pas, the routine – the whole frickin' class – I'm going to miss it!

Here's to you, dance class, I'm going to miss you so much :(
