However, since I moved to Minneapolis, I joined the YWCA, and have enjoyed most of my membership so far through dance classes. I cannot say what exactly drew me back into it. I guess I feel since I moved about 2000 miles from my previous home, I am already out of my comfort zone. Why not give it another shot? Well, my passion burns strong. I LOVE my classes. They are fun, great exercise, and pressure-free. One thing I always remained anxious of was when the instructor walked up to me, and corrected or criticized my dancing. Here, the instructor takes the class with us, and I do everything to my own standards and comfort. It makes the experience for me. I am even trying a new-to-me kind, Zumba, tomorrow evening.
All this dancing reminds me of my favorite dance movie, Flashdance. It's a GREAT movie, if you have not seen it yet. It features a predictable love story, but the choreography, costumes, and music always bring me right to a 1980s dance studio.
And yes, I have invested in some dancer-ish clothes from American Apparel. Now that I dance again, I have no problem looking like Jennifer Beals.
