A few days ago, I met up with CADs, my old dance team and watched them rehearse for an upcoming show. Their new head, Michelle, requires everyone to train in sports bras and short shorts. Then, they’d have to weigh themselves and measure their gut weekly! When I heard about this, I was so thankful that I graduated already, and that I didn’t have to subject myself to that torture! I’ve always been conscious about showing my tummy in public, if not in the beach (Its so weird, I just can’t bring myself to do it!) I was hesitant to approve the concept because I thought it would just make the shy girls more conscious about themselves. But when I watched them dance… I had to take it all back. Can I just say that training in sports bras and short shorts is a huge confidence builder! And more than that, its just plain hot! I’m so proud of these girls for finally starting to come out of their shells and doing this. I have to admit, I was a little jealous! Im sitting here getting fatter by the second, while they’re dancing their hearts out, and looking great while they’re at it. *Sigh those were the good old days. (says me, and my tendency to sound like i’m 80.) Im so happy for the girls and for the bright future ahead of CADs!
On May 28 and 29, I’m going to be a guest performer, dancing a contemporary piece, at Balletcenter’s summer recital. The idea of performing again really gets me excited. I wish I could dance forever, but there isn’t a single contemporary dance school in Cebu, and there’s no way Im going back to ballet. Hmmmmmm…If only if only.
