God Bless Dance Teachers

Just got home from my daughters dress rehearsal for a holiday dance show she has tomorrow night. These kids are already so excited for Christmas coming and to get them to pay attention and listen to the instructions takes the patience of saints.

I was what they call a wrangler. Basically I sat with my daughter's class and made sure they didn't go anywhere. Not too difficult, but someone always has a question or wanders away to get closer to the stage to see the older kids perform. When it's time for them to go on stage I have to line them all up and make sure they have everything. Then there was the changing of costumes and the getting everything back together to go home. I really hope no one forgot anything. I checked twice, but you never know.

I'm home now, but there were still many more acts to go on after my daughters class was done and all those dance teachers were still there trying to talk over the giggling girls. I know a few of them won't have voices tomorrow. Even with the microphones they still had to yell. Well I wish them a quick end to the night, but I know that's not going to happen when they have each group redo their routines 2 or 3 times. It's crazy, but they just keep on trucking with smiles on their faces. I know I wouldn't be able to keep smiling so God bless dance teachers for giving time, patience and love to my daughter and all the other little dancers out there. They really do have a special gift.

Wow! I guess everything is busy at this time of year, even dance classes. I'm glad that your daughter enjoys her dance class, and that she has a patient dance teacher. Happy Holidays!
