Tonight was the second half of the mini heels intensive so everyone dressed up and we had a lot of fun learning some sexy (and challenging) choreography. I didn’t know what to wear but luckily I found a Christmassy sleep shirt at Sainsbury’s that I thought looked cute. I added a belt to it and wore some bike shorts and tights, too. As far as sexy outfits go, I felt comfy and confident in it so that’s all that mattered in the end!
Dance class was super challenging. My core strength is non-existant and I found myself really struggling to engage my core for certain moves. In the new year I really want to build back my core strength because oof was that routine painful at times. Even though the routine was challenging, I definitely felt supported by the rest of the group and sometimes that support is just enough to help me get out of my head. I’m so glad I went to the heels intensive! Like, I’m definitely more of a commercial dancer and heels is outside of my comfort zone, but I genuinely had a great time. It was also so awesome and inspiring to see the rest of the group killing the choreo – just mindblowing stuff!!
