All That Jazz

she’s probably dancing…."

We were super tired today from class–it was our first practice of term…and most of us didn’t continuing our conditioning and taking technique classes over winter break. We’ll all be sore tomorrow, I’m sure.
In most of my dance classes–we’ve all started discussing our pieces for the Caltech Dance Show in April. That’s only a few months away!…and it will be my last! πŸ™ I remember when I came in as a freshman…I’m pretty sure I was the only undergrad dancer–I was dancing alongside grad students mostly. But I’m so excited that over the years, I have been joined by wonderful underclassman in the dance classes. I guess as the senior member on the troupe…I feel a great sense of responsibility to promote the dance classes/troupe/show, and recruit dancers. Which isn’t hard, because it is truly something I am passionate about.
Stay tuned for more dancing this term…we’re really gonna pick it up in preparation for the big show!
