First off it has just been hard to get used to being a dancer. I'm having to stretch everyday and exercise daily so I can endure sometimes two hour stretches. I'm practicing pointe again if I choose to later on teach pointe and OMG I forgot how much that hurts when you have been dormant for a long while. All of these things will only be a good thing in the long run for increased health. Boy I've gotten lazy since having kids :( No more of that for me.
The other challenge is a learning curve of just being part of a bigger organization which is Gym Magic and figuring out the needs of the program in relation to everything else. With great help though from everyone I'm learning my way. I'm so excited that we are indeed growing the program now. This week we officially started our Moonbeams, Sunbeams, and Little Stars for our popular gym dance combinations.
And we started our amazing new show group. We have about 65 girls enrolled currently in dance. A few parents made the choice to sign up for our show group and we had our first presentation last Saturday at the mall. Despite a snafu with music everyone was just amazing. I love my students each so much (especially Rachey) and I can't wait to see how everything grows in years to come.
So if you're in Cruces and have a child interested in dance let me know!
