As I settle into my third year as a DWC instructor, I must say one of the biggest perks is having the opportunity to return to a school the following year. It's always bitter sweet at the end of session, when we say goodbye to students and parents after the big dance event. However returning to a school the following year, is always exciting. Most of the time I get a new group of bright eyed students, who have heard all of the fun stories about last year and are super excited, and somewhat nervous. I love seeing the classes from previous years in the hall...
"Hey Miss Brandi!"
"Are you teaching again Miss Brandi?"
"I taught my mom the Salsa Miss Brandi!"
"Can I come down to the dance room with your new class Miss Brandi?!!"
It's very exciting : )
Just last Wednesday I had the pleasure of returning to, Libby Elementary School. Because they have a YMCA sponsored after school program that participates in, DWC, I walked into the class room pleasantly surprised to see my little angles from last year, already partnered and practicing!! I peeked in through the window, so I could observe without being spotted, until I hear, "It's Miss Brandi!" Suddenly I was bum rushed by a group of happy dancing kids ready to learn the new Meringue, and very happy to see me. The feeling was mutual and the class was one for the books.....or the blogs : )
