Want to be confused? LOL. Take a dance class.
Well, it always works for me anyway.
This session of dance we are concentrating solely on the Cha-Cha. I'm happy about it (as happy as I get about dance class) because the last time we took instruction we also learned the Waltz. Yaawwwwnnnnn...
So, last night was our first jump back into dancing after a two year hiatus from lessons and practicing not much at all. OK OK, practicing NOT at all. For me, repetition is key and if I don't repeat I will not remember and therefore I knew I'd basically be starting over.
Also, as TMUPOTP, LOL that spells nothing - I am trying to say that as The Most Uncoordinated Person On The Planet I understand that it will take me longer to learn things, I will have to practice more and I will have to work to not be as frustrated as the Second Most Uncoordinated Person On The Planet (SMUPOTP) LOL that almost spells something. Oh, THAT would be SAM, by the way. So, here we are, Mr. and Mrs. TwoLeftFeet off to dance lessons again.
I was actually pleased with how much I did remember. The instructor moves quite fast but you learn a ton in six weeks. And the best part is that it qualifies as gratitude in motion for me. Moving to music and (after you get better at it) putting your own style into something is extremely joyful.
Plus Sam takes me to dinner and I have a beer before class so I feel more happy to make a fool of myself. Do not think for a moment that the beer is what causes my coordination issues. Even our instructor jokes that he will bring me a spare if Sam doesn't have time for dinner. LOL.
Because the ability to express ourselves and care for ourselves through motion is something we should be grateful for...
