In no particular order, the dance things I love:
When my littles rush into class because they can’t wait one more second to start dancing
Opening up the first costume shipping box of the season
The hush of the audience as the lights go down in the theater
Celebrating the small accomplishments
Warm-up camaraderie before a performance
Turns in tap shoes (picture is Ruby Keeler)
Combinations with pirouettes on the right side
Taking a master class and being a student again
By the end of the year, how each class feels like its own little family
The buzz backstage at a performance
The moment before you step on stage from the wings
Perfectly worn-in shoes
Getting lost in the movement
This is my take on Dance Advantage’s February “Circle Time” post.
