As some of you might know from my other social media accounts (mostly Flickr, Facebook and Instagram).. I have been following high heels dance classes since the fall last year. I had never danced in my 40-year life.. and I just wanted learn some graceful feminine moves. And perhaps not make a fool of myself if I ever found myself on the dance-floor! :-P
So, imagine my hesitation when the dance teacher, at the beginning of this year, asked our group if we wanted to perform at the end-of-season festival! After a bit of thinking, we all said: what the heck.. and we went for it!
And all the photos that you see in this post were the result of taking a risk and saying yes! :-D
The festival was on the 2nd of July.. and there were two session scheduled: on in the morning and in the afternoon. So, we had to get there early and get in our dresses and do our make-up. And of course, snapping pics for Instagram.
Of course, we had to make a group photo! Sadly, our teacher was missing in this photo, because she was also very busy running the rest of the show.
Fortunately, the professional photographer took a pic of the 6 of us together striking a pose!
Here is an action shot of me... I'm just relieved the photographer caught me in a somewhat okay pose. It's very easy to catch someone in very uncharming pose when they are dancing! :-P
I don't often take selfies, but this one in the changing room was quite all right. I guess I should be thankful for smart-phone filters! :-P
And this is us after the performance.. giving our feet a little bit of rest!
Needless to say, it was an amazing experience and I hope to be part of this next year!
Have a great weekend! ♥
There is a DVD of the whole performance available for sale. I still have to buy. In the mean time, you can see part of the performance on Instagram! And of course, you can watch the last 2 videos I posted on YouTube. :-)
