Laschwen Posted August 16, 2006 Report Share Posted August 16, 2006 I made back into class yeaterday, bum toe and all. I found I wasn't the only one who broke a toe during the off season this year. We had 4 students in class and 2 of us were gimpy. That really threw the teacher. Class was great anyway. It was good to get moving again; even if kind of flat footed. The really cool thing was a new student. She is 20 and never had a dance class before. With so few in class the teacher had more time for her than he might usually and took advantage. I couldn't believe how cooperative her body was. It took every correction and held it. She doesn't know the language or much of what is what at all, but was so teachable. She is blessed with a body that has the facility and I know that is a big advantage. I am just not used to seeing someone do so well on a first day; shoeless and all. I just bet the teacher went home and gushed to his wife about the new student with such wonderful potential. I just love being in adult Ballet. I am so glad to see people coming in whether they danced as kids or not. I hope our other true beginners start back to class soon. It could lead to more classes offered per week.
