Whole lotta labia.

Hi. I have a new default icon. Why? Because Molly rocks. It's been time for a change for a while, I just didn't have a viable alternative. I like this one.. it makes me think of winds and change and open seas and new horizons. Perfect.
Also, can I tell you how glad I am that I'm not taking the tribal class on Monday nights anymore? I'm still on the mailing list, though. Originally I stayed on to keep up to date on things because I'd been thinking I'd take the Thursday night beginner class. Now I stay on because it's like some kind of train wreck. This is a class that somehow got it into their heads that they could be a performing troupe. When they do it's all Big Arms and Sweeping Moves and they end up looking like Saturday Night Fever.
And she's not a good instructor. She's a fine dancer but she can't teach to save herself. No idea of cohesive curriculum, no sense of breaking down moves, and terrible cueing, even for the advanced folks.
I've emailed another tribal troupe to see if they're teaching. If they're not (and I suspect they won't be for the winter) I'm going to look into a Monday drop-in with one of the better known and more formal instructors in the area. We'll see how that goes.
I like dancing. Cait's right.. it's a vocabulary.. each move is a word.. I have great words, now I need to speak in sentences.
