Dancing on Halloween
I think Halloween is the best day of the year to work with school kids! Almost all the kids were dressed in costumes yesterday. Kids I didn't even know would pass by and proudly show off their costumes: "I'm a Chef!"... "I'm a Ninja Alien!"..."I'm a Platypus!" Even the teachers got into the act dressed as fairies, board games, and robots. So when I told my dancers to imagine themselves in a ballroom with the ladies dressed up in fancy gowns, they didn't even have to imagine as many of the ladies were already actually wearing their pink, blue, and white gowns! We did have to use our imaginations to explain what the ninja alien and platypus were doing in the ballroom (studying Earthling dance and being the king's pet, respectively). I hope I get to teach on Halloween again next year!
