Since I was sick the end of last year and the beginning of '07, I had to take a hiatus from Flamenco class. Well, I had to take a break from Flamenco dancing in general. I had some major respiratory issues going on, which left me out of breath even after some relatively mild exercise. Now that I'm better, I've been exercising more--which means the dancing shoes are coming back on baby!
I've been invited to perform with some of my classmates at a fundraiser for a local theater company. The event is two weeks away, which leaves me precious little time to get a few of my dances--and me--in fighting shape.The good news is that I still fit into my costumes. The bad news is that I'm hard pressed to find rehearsal time. Flamenco Dad is wrapping up his semester, which means finals, juries, and a rather lengthy research paper he needs to turn in. I'm practicing my routines wherever I can. Ayden has been getting a kick out of watching his mommy fold laundry, dust, and cook while doing the sevillanas, tangos, and rumbas. I'm rehearsing with my classmates this weekend, so I hope to be ready by then.
