ahh such an appropriate question this time of year. it's nearly may. and after may comes june. and june means dance recital. besides the recital rehearsal stress (6 extra rehearsals in addition to the classes i teach regularly, as well as now my play center job) being on staff brings the stress of choreographing, teaching and perfecting dances. this year, i've been able to combine a few of my classes together, as well as with other classes... but that still means i have 3 classes of "big kids" that i have to
a lot of my stress comes from me wanting things to be PERFECT... and feeling like nothing is getting done with a bunch of crazy hooligan children... but i know when it comes down to it, they're all smart kids and on show day will just go out there, have fun & do their best.
and the other part of my stress comes from me having to remember three dances of my own in the midst of teaching 13 or so dances. oy. once june 22nd is over and done with (and then june 23rd, because i'm second shooting a wedding that day) i might just sleep through most of monday until i have to go to the play center. i've already warned the boy that he may not see much of me during the month of june... hopefully i survive it!
