I try not to take personally the comings and goings of my class participants. People have 3 main reasons to come to my class: they like me (and their classmates), they like the format, or they like the music. They have a million reasons NOT to come, including dental appointments, laziness & inertia, illness, vacations, etc etc etc, most of which is out of my control. Still, it was hard to take when about a quarter of my 8 am class defected to the 9 am that follows it. I couldn't help but wonder what was missing or objectionable about my class that sent them away.
I found out today. They were back, and seemed happy to be there. Eventually one of them told me that the driver who brings a bunch of them in her van was back in town and back in the driver's seat! If they have to drive themselves, they have to wait for more daylight because their night vision isn't great (they're seniors). It's not always about the instructor!
