At our meeting yesterday we spent more than 4 hours researching and watching classic burlesque. I was so enthralled with the many different ways this art is performed and so enjoying the company that my ADD hardly kicked in at all. When it did, I just took a kitty break and enjoyed some time with Damien the cat. Five hours and tons of chips and salsa and cheese later, I had to leave as the meeting wound down.
And the good news is that so many girls have joined (looks like 10 or more I think) that not every girl will be able to be in every performance. This "part time" status means not doing as many shows so as to make room for everyone to have a chance. And this is great, because it means still getting to do what I love without having to worry about continuous shows and rehearsals becoming too stressful when balanced with pole practice, teaching and an active social life. So wow, maybe I really can have it all! If not, I will certainly go down in flames trying. Because life is becoming this delightful buffet and I want a lot of everything.
