This month's dance classes are over. Perhaps trying to do Quickstep, Viennese Waltz, and a private lesson back-to-back wasn't such a good idea. If I sign up for classes next month, it will probably be Viennese Waltz only. Although my private teacher is listed as the instructor, she said she won't be around for next week's class. I don't know whether that means she won't be teaching any of them; she wasn't there for the first meeting of this month's Viennese class.

I seem to be getting back into the dance habit ok, although I have experienced some muscle strain in my back and shoulders that I didn't have when I last danced regularly. Part of this may be due to using muscles I haven't used in a while, but I think some of it also has to do with stress/tension at work. I've noticed that while sitting at my desk typing on my laptop, my muscles are really tight. I'll have to make a conscious effort to relax, but it will be difficult, because I feel on edge at work most of the time.

I haven't had a chance until now to write about a dance/Stuy-related dream I had last Monday. In the dream, I was in a gym dancing. Then I went outside with the SO of one of my former Starlite teachers. Afterwards, I had trouble finding my knapsack. I roamed the Stuy hallways looking for it, but whenever I found it I'd wind up losing it again. Eventually I wound up at Spanish class. I had never seen the teacher before, but the teacher observing the class was Maria Puccio, who was my first term sophomore year Spanish teacher. I sat down next to her, class started, and the dream ended.
