I have been dancing for 18 years.
My dance career is legally an adult!!!
For a long time I have been teaching and trying to learn dance.
And it has been fantastic.
With me moving...
To a city.
I realized that there are dance opportunities.
So I called an old contact to see if I could work for their ballet studio
And that is okay.
It is because of their no that I have decided to get brave.
I was texting Zac about this.
And I decided that I was going to try to get a job at the big ballet company in the city.
For a spot in the company.
You know what he said?
"Go for it."
So I called.
I received a call from the school that I am now going to be working at.
I did not get the assistant coaching position I had applied for.. I got a NEW position that they made up... in the middle school... Middle School Cheer Coach.
Paid and everything.
And for a moment I was very excited!
I had been confident in the interview..
I was EVEN an extrovert.
And I got this job.
So I called my mom to tell her
And she tried to be excited for me...
Then she asked if I was prepared for all the work.
So I texted Zac.
Trying to get things in order in my brain.
(I would have called him but he is on vacation.)
So I called my mother back.
I talked through everything.
Even told her that I am auditioning for a specific dance company.
And she prayed with me.
And told me whatever I felt was the right decision she would back me up.
She told me that she thinks it is time I audition
She said I have been training my whole life and why not just try.
So I decided...
And believe me it was not an easy choice (at first)
But I decided not to take the cheerleader position.
Just to focus on teaching and training.
I am going to FINALLY lunge for my dreams.
And really try...
And whether I get in or not, Zac and I are getting ice cream.
One scoop if I make it in...
Two if I don't
I get ice cream with the male-whom-I-am-fond-of.
Have a good night folks.
