Outfit Post ~ This is How I Dance.

Gooda Mornink.

If you are a regular follower of my blog then you know my real job is a Dance Teacher. I am the luckiest girl around because I get to be creative, dance around and act silly all while getting paid. :)

I try and be a good role model for all of my kids in all of my classes. I naturally worry the most about my teens since I know this is the age where things start to change, they begin to try and figure out who they are, and everyone and everything is SOOOOOOOOOO important. I worry about bullying and their feelings and I try and enforce a positive and fun place  for them to be. My approach is to treat them all the same. Last night one of the girls came and asked me if she was my favorite. I laughed and said "No". The look on her face of utter shock was hilarious then she asked "Why not?" Now all the kids are looking at me for an answer and I said "I don't like you all equally!!!!" We all started laughing as they all groan "Misssssss....Shellllllleyyyyyyy!!!!! - Your mean!!!!" hahahahahaha...

My kids feel like I am cool at Dance but embarrassing in our small town (I think). I wear god awful outfits and trek around town doing errands before and after dance. This is my outfit post on a pretty tame dance ensemble :)

This is a total "Miss. Shelley" pose as well. Please ignore the horrendous state of my living room....{sigh} we are in mass production mode for all our Christmas Craft Fairs coming up. My favorite part is the look on Chuck Norris' face - "mom...seriously?!? You soooooo lame..."

Please notice my leggings!!!!! My friend Maryse makes them and she does the most spectacular tye die!!!! Check out her etsy Goodies By Maryse. All the kids at dance want them and I LOVE mine so much!!!! ***THANKS MARYSE!!!***

This post makes me miss being Miss Molly! What do you teach? I danced competitively for 15 years until injuries made it impossible, then I taught tap and a jazz/ballet combo class until I REALLY became a gimp! Good times.

Wow thats a lot of classes! I miss tap a seriously unbelievable amount. Whenever my feet are idle (especially standing outside when it's cold!) my feet start doing either double drawbacks or or rif walking or something of that nature. It's practically involuntary!

If you secretly sashay across your living room when you're home alone or long to cha-cha with your significant other, you're in luck. Not only is dancing an exceptional way to let loose and have fun, but it also provides some terrific benefits for your health.
