Today my Spanish class started a project where they write about what they were like as children. When I looked at my sample, I noticed it was covered with pictures of me dancing and dressed in my ballet clothes.
When I was a kid, I loved dancing. I took ballet lessons and Irish dancing lessons. I dreamed of the day when I would join the older girls, dancing on point and doing the hornpipe. I never got there. When I got sick in the fifth grade, all the dancing stopped.
I'm not sure that I really ever had much coordination or balance (I assume that I did), but now I can't dance to save my life! I have thought about taking some lessons again, like ballroom dancing. When it comes to musical endeavors, I seem to do best with detailed instructions and steps. I could probably memorize some dance steps and maybe reproduce them on a dancefloor somewhere. Maybe :)
