During my time at school (which feels like a long time ago now) I took dance as a subject. I loved it & still love it. But I no longer do it.
There were always more girls than boys in the class & in fact at one point we only had 1 boy amongst about 15+ of us girls. It was unfair on him, he however loved it & actually was a good dancer.
We would start by doing our stretches then we’d move on to the set pieces we either had to learn & perform in front of the others or we would study techniques of other dancers & then have to choreograph our own piece of dance. It was good fun, interesting & in the end important for our grading & exams.
I continued to dance at various times…mainly when I’d had a few drinks…but I have never joined a dance class. I know I would actually feel shy dancing in front of others even after doing it for 3-4 years. I get stage fright badly & this effects the things I would love to do. Dancing being one of them.
I looked in to doing Zumba dancing but the cold wimped me out…ok that is one really lame excuse but really who wants to go out at night when it is frozen, sweat through dancing then go back out in the cold? Not me. No way. So I haven’t been Zumba dancing, which actually annoys me as I do want to give it a go & see if I have the stammer to dance for an hour. Perhaps now that the weather is getting warmer I’ll be brave enough to at least attend one session just to put my curiosity at bay. If I do I’ll be sure to let you know. If not then I’ll keep secretly dancing round my living room to faint music & pray that no one sees me!
