Hard to believe the end of the Fall teaching session is nearly here.  One more class next Tuesday at Canterbury for Jamaleen, and the Amala lovelies have their last class on the 29th, at HCRS.   I’m so happy they’ll all be joining me to welcome teachers, students, family and friends, on Friday Nov.22nd, for our class party (details on Events page).

This session has been both challenging and fun.  Total credit goes to my awesome students, for helping me discover a couple of new insights into teaching techniques for beginners, and a reminder about WHY I love sharing the basics of dance with them.  Although ongoing health concerns have limited my physical ability to shine in classes with Safiya and Halyma; their teaching ability and patience have, as always, had a positive and beneficial influence on my admittedly slow progress for technique and development of dance skills.   It’s easy to get discouraged and lose confidence; but thinking of myself as a “work in progress” helps keep things in perspective, and not take myself too seriously.  The ability to laugh at yourself is essential for letting go and feeling joy in the simple pleasures of life; like dancing, having fun, and passing on that positive energy to others….so I will shimmy myself silly, and say, “Honey, just shake it till you make it!!”  Sample15***************************************************************
