This evening, a friend and I went to a yoga class, where most of the students were at an advanced level.

We know the basics, but haven’t take a class in quite some time. We’ve been couch potatoes in the corner for too long.

This class was awesome for many reasons, one because it was above our level.

Taking the class: stretching my muscles; being disciplined with the body in movement; going beyond my abilities; getting all sweaty; and feeling exhausted at the end of the class; reminded me how much I really miss dancing, especially jazz modern with a great dance instructor.

I really miss not dancing on a regular basis.

If we can afford it, I’m gonna see if I can add one dance class a week to my exercise program. Am already paying for an eight-week course in yoga. It would be great to do both.

What a nuisance finances can be.

Dancing at home is an option. Though I wish I could work with an instructor. Get the routine down; help me move beyond my known abilities.

Re: FYI
That should be "once-a-month", though I guess it means the same in the end.

Re: FYI
sounds like a lot of fun.

mr. f would need convincing.

he's interested in contra dancing, but we haven't made one of the monthly dances in almost four years.

eh, we have had our excuses.

thank you, sckot, for the tip.

Re: FYI
mr. f firmly said no to tango lessons.

he says it's a coordination thing.

we'll have to start him out with waltzes ... but i do believe he's underestimating his abilities.

You seem to miss dancing the way I miss fencing. :)

By the way! If you're still looking for cry-tastic movies, I can personally recommend The Mighty. And at this point, you should probably either tell me to stop with the movie comments... otherwise I'll go ahead and add you to my Netflix friends? :)

Thanks, C.
