It’s been two weeks since my last dance class.
Our studio offered two unscheduled open classes yesterday and this morning.
I was looking forward to them, a chance to get back into ballet shape before the regular schedule resumes next week.
Then, Monday sickness hit. Coughing, a sore throat, sinus problems and an occasional fever. I felt miserable yesterday and even missed work, much less skipped the class.
Felt a little better today, but the cough will not let me go. I slept in rather than go to the second class.
In years past, I probably would have gone. But not today. Part of me thought maybe I could sweat some of the toxins out, but there was a part wondering if it would have made it worse. Going to try to go into work tonight well medicated.
A friend of mine who dances at a college in Pennsylvania is back in town and teaching a master class tomorrow. I’m hoping to feel well enough to go. I miss ballet. I am so not in dance shape.
But I want to feel great before I go back.
