First Week of Dance Classes!

The first class I taught was the JBT, or Jazz/Ballet/Tap, class for 11-14 year-olds.
Only two girls showed up, but we had a good time. 
Two more girls showed up for company (they had missed registration). We weren't going to hold company this week, but since they missed JBT (and the two other girls thought there was company) we had class. 
Since we're not starting on choreography yet, we did conditioning and across the floors.
It was a much more intense work out then I was planning on! 
But it was really fun to get out there and dance again! 
Unfortunately, I walked to the studio in some shoes I that are either too small or I haven't worn in (I'm not sure cuz I'm a flip flop girl) and I ended up getting a huge blister!
It's about the size of a quarter.
It's super gross. 
And it hurts. 
But other than that, dance class was great!

I only taught the one class, since we are holding off on company class 
until we have company.
I taught a JBT class to 1st-3rd graders.
There were nine of them, and they were chatty!
But they were super cute and it was great fun --
I'll just have to be patient with them until I instill silence in them! 
haha :) 

Again, I only taught one class, but today it was my Broadway/Musical Theatre Class.
We had a wide range of dancers ages today.
Three 14ish year olds, and one 8 year old.
We had two more 8 year olds that didn't make it today. 
It was a blast though!
But so Jenny and I decided we'd split the class, so now I'll have
a class for the older girls, and a class for the younger girls.

Over all, this week was great teaching dance! I'm excited for the rest of the year!
