My favorite classroom moment so far
This is my first year teaching the Dancing With Class core program, and thankfully I have an amazing school with a wonderful teacher to help me along. The kids are just fabulous, too, and they make me laugh every week. Before they leave class, I ask them each to tell me one thing they learned about the dance I taught. It could be the movement, the history, the country of origin - anything. Last week when I was having the gentlemen escort their partner out the door, I asked them what they learned about the swing dance we just learned. The first gentleman I asked looked at me with wide eyes so I knew he had nothing in mind. He then suddenly smiled, looked at his partner, and said, "Ladies first." I couldn't help but laugh because I had been stressing proper manners and it came right back at me!
