More Than Tango

Breakthrough realization: I need my other dances.

I was boring myself with my dancing last night. I could attribute this to the year-ish mark – hitting a lull in my dancing, another plateau. But I think it has more to do with the rest of my life. I have been trying to save money by not taking many dance classes at all: I haven’t been belly dancing, I didn’t try the Persian dance series, and for whatever reasons (just plain laziness?) I haven’t even been taking the modern dance classes that are available to me for free. Not only that, I have let my running schedule slide. In other words, most of my activity lately has been restricted to tango.

Thankfully, I have an immediate remedy: Tonight I have a modern rehearsal to go to. And even if I have to cut back elsewhere, I am going to get back into my belly dancing class. I love tango and could never replace it, but I feel most vibrant when I have my other dancing (and non-dancing activities!) to sustain me and give me energy. That said, I am thinking about expanding my writing to include at least my other dances … that energy will keep me interested and hopefully keep my blog interesting.
