I was at one of my private classes recently when I mentioned how a certain sequence in the chacha does not look good on me and I can't do it well. Out of the blue, my instructor got quite upset about it. He pretty much blew up on me. As a background, I don't know how to 'play the part' and 'act'. I know it is expected in dance and competitions, but I have the hardest time getting out of myself and not feeling totally stupid when I am showing emotion or the feel of the dance. I have the hardest time doing that, and my teacher knows that. I was caught off guard by his anger, which I thought was unjustified. I'm just trying to find my way, not making his job more difficult. I understand his frustrations, but am I not allowed to ask or question anything as a student? Bottom line, we did not clear the air and resolve this and next class was very awkward, with both of us being very quiet and none of the usual friendliness nd now I don't know what to do. I have to work next week and I don't see him till Saturday. I don't want our next lesson to be as awkward and weird. Should I bring it up and try to clear the air? My feelings were truly hurt by his outburst.
