I know I’ve said I’ve sworn off buying dancewear online.
But when the dance store you use is no longer reliable as it once was … you give online a try.
I found out during Nutcracker that one of my trusty pairs of tights ended up with a rip in a place where they didn’t need a rip. My other trusty pair is starting to get a hole in a place it doesn’t need a hole.
Both already had holes in the toes, which didn’t go well with leather shoes that had holes in the toe. I ended up getting a canvas pair of shoes, and well, they’re not my favorite shoes I’ve ever had.
So, I ordered a pair of tights online. I’m praying they fit. I’m praying they are opaque, thick and opaque. The reviews claim they are. But we’ll see.
It still boggles the mind why it seems the majority of men’s tights out there are a little “see through.” I can’t believe there are guys who are OK with that.
I also ordered a cheap leather pair of shoes. We’ll see how it goes this time.
As for class itself, I’m beginning to get back into a routine.
I mentioned Monday’s class was pretty rough.
But I ended up with two really good classes back-to-back on Thursday and Saturday morning. Mr. O’s sister taught those as well. They were intense with complicated combinations, but somehow I managed to pick them up.
My turns, though, left a lot to be desired. It seems they disappeared with the holiday break.
