Dance Class

Dance class was a BLAST tonight! First, we were drilled on some techniques. The instructor really worked us hard — which was great. And tiring. For some reason, it is easier for me to learn more complicated dance moves than it is very simple ons. We were layering dance moves Read more…

Strange Weekend

A good friend of mine died on Saturday. The second death since Thanksgiving. His funeral is today. The farrier is coming tonight as well. I tried to reschedule — the earliest appointment would be at the end of December. The horses can’t afford to go that long, not with Isis Read more…

Pre-Recital Stuff

So far everything has been going well. I am not going to do any workouts tonight like I normally would. I’ve practised the choreography a few times, reviewed the steps and the music. I feel comfortable with everything. Here’s hoping tomorrow goes well!
