I've taught for over half my life and up until recently had no plans to stop anytime soon. However, I was just diagnosed with Parkinson's. It began as a slight tremor in my left hand and is slowly expanding to other body parts. Now, all of a sudden, I'm not sure about the future. I have never been one of those teachers who sits on a stool and points at an assistant demonstrator. I've always danced. The tremors are affecting that now, and the parents and students are noticing. So... I'm mostly just here looking for others dance teachers who may be in similar predicaments to share advice, feelings, whatever.
