i survived day one!

Tuesday, September 08, 2009

So, I survived my first burlesque class! Today we focused on walking. Three types: good,, bad, and ugly. Good is the up, prim and proper walk. Bad is the grounded, sexy walk. Ugly we didn't cover because we should never do it.

Somehow, I can do all the moves just fine, but in my overthinking, perfectionist mind, I was trying to hard, and felt awkward. So, until next class I am going to work on relaxing and just letting it happen.

There are eight women in the class, of varying types. One of the women mentioned her shoes were too big, and she should maybe get new ones. Her shoes were too big because she's lost 90 pounds, and her feet are now smaller!! Good for her, both for losing the weight and taking the class!!!

The class was definitely more of a workout than I expected. We did lots of squats and clenching and isolations. Squats are definitely trickier in heels!!! I worked up a surprising sweat, and was pleased to record some extra cardio for today. I also thought up a routine, should I get to perform. I will just say it involves a squeaky red nose and curly rainbow hair. Teehee!!!

Now I am going for a run, then we're off to see 9. I am glad it is less than an hour-and-a-half long...I tried taking a nap, but was too keyed up from the sexy class. That alarm is gonna go off painfully early in the morning!!!! Then it will be practice with the valium, then Thursday I am off from work for fun with needles and electricity. That may affect my updating...we'll see!!!

    That does sound like fun! I don't think we have any of those classes here in KS - too uptight, I guess! I just started taking a ballet class (haven't danced in 14 years, hellooo wake up call) and that's pretty much anything but sexy right now. Ha! I'm pretty sure anyone watching us bunch of adults trying to do ballet would be alarmed. :)

    I have enough trouble doing squats in regular shoes, let alone heels! But then, I am much older than you! Still, I wish I could take the class with you. I have always had the secret desire to be a burlesque dancer. Don't mention that to G!!
