(ATL) Total eclipse of the (dance 101) heart
Posted by Paulina

Inside the studio with Paulina:

My eclipse experience in 2 words... Space. Cadet. No, I didn't see one, I turned into one... from showing up to the studio in a panic yesterday morning because I couldn't find my studio key - only to find it a few hours later in the cup holder of my car (my bad Erik for making you roll out of bed and bail me out)… to trying to rinse out my very numb mouth post teeth cleaning and watching the water fly out of my mouth like a toddler with a garden hose (however you are picturing it is exactly how it went down ha)... needless to say it was quite a Moonday.

Dear Dancers, Artistic Athletes & Dreamers,

Today's 101 is short and sweet - mainly because my brain is fried.  2am has become my new bedtime as I try to untwist the knots in my mind since I started writing the teacher training manual for the certification course dance 101 is debuting in January.  What. a. process. I literally feel like my mind gets twisted into a pretzel - or pretzelsssss (plural) - while thinking, cataloging, researching, organizing, editing, writing and re-writing... putting thousands of words (I'm up to 5700) onto paper. I'm not a writer, friends! Some days I'm on the computer for a solid 10 hours (Thank God I teach Dancer's Stretch 4 times a week and can work out the kinks in my lower back from so much sitting!). This is not easy for me. Every evening I feel like I'm in labor - giving birth to this... thing... this... I'm not sure what to call it.

Dear Dancers, Artistic Athletes & Dreamers,

School's back in session... do I hear an AMEN!? Or maybe for some of you it's more like OH NOOO NOT YET!? One thing I'm sure we can all agree upon is how short the summer break has become. Could it be the school year is moving slowly towards a year round schedule? I'm not mad about that idea - but my kids are long out of school so my vote doesn't count. At any rate, life is now settling into a new routine and hopefully that includes a lot of dance for you!

We have some exciting schedule additions on the horizon...
