Sometimes it's all about the small victories! :) I have started coming back to Irish dance land after a 6 month break (part of that time included being in India). When I went to my first class back, I was VERY self-conscious about my dancing. That made me just want to go only occasionally to class.

However, this past week I told myself that nothing is going to improve if I don't just jump into it and go for it! :) So I've gone to both classes this week, and had a REALLY good time! My dancing wasn't stellar, but I was able to just enjoy myself more.

So while I don't know which direction I'm headed in this crazy Irish dance world, I'm thankful I can at least enjoy the ride! :D Just wanted to share!!

Yay! I understand. I've just returned after an 8 month break due to injuries and whatnot. I forget sometimes just how much fun dance class can be. Even on the days when I'm cranky or tired, I always leave in a much better mood.

Congrats on getting back in there!

So glad you went to class and DANCED and didn't worry about the others. Enjoy your passion for dance and go out there and enjoy the music and the dance form! :)

Yay! Although I haven't taken such big breaks (just a few months at the tail end of my pregnancy and until the doc said I could go back after my son was born) I know it's weird to come back to class. I always do because I love it. It's great exercise and I love the women I dance with. Besides, I have to justify that expensive solo dress I finally bought last year! :P

So glad you're enjoying dance again! Have fun - it's like riding a bike - it will all come back to you!
