*Update Oct. 1* Well, this will only really be updated this once, as I have come to a final conclusion in my life. For those who do not know, I began at the request of others to keep updating people on how it was to go from student of dance to an actual instructor. It had its ups and downs, the long training session that lasted almost 2 months, the lack of money, the insurance debate, and more, but in the end I became a teacher. Unfortunately, as I have but one college class that I take this semester, I have been finding more and more that I miss college dearly and the life it ensued. So, I have decided, I will quit as an instructor. I haven't even been tested onto the next level, but between the stress I feel on a daily basis, the lack of love for dancing now, and the horrible pain in my feet from dancing 5 days a week if not more, it has lost its appeal by far. Even teaching, the joy of showing others how to dance, is diminishing. Its a sad thing to have to say, but in the end I know I want to get a true degree in college and pursue a "normal" life before deciding if I want to go back to dancing or not. And if all else fails, at least I have the knowledge that I recieved about $3000+ worth in lessons for free. I just regret that it didn't hold through, but I am still quite young and need to explore all that this world has to offer before settling into one career for sure. Who knows, I might go back to Fred Astaire to teach again, but ont for a few years I think.
