Today, as the title would lead you to infer, is a big day for me.
First, it’s the two-year anniversary of a person close to the JA’s and my hearts. I can’t believe it’s been that long since his passing – at times, it feels like just yesterday. We think of him often, and pause today more so than others to keep his memory and legacy alive.
Second, tonight I will co-teach my first group exercise class. With the holidays quickly approaching, it’s inevitable that classes would need a substitute. In the past, I found that the quality of Barre Fusion tended to suffer – there aren’t many people who a.) know the format and b.) have the training to teach the class well. While I’m not certified to teach barre, I do have many years of dance training under my belt. I’ve been taking the class for a while now and, upon expressing my displeasure to Rachel, found myself offering to sub for her. I’m a little nervous. I generally leave the teaching to the JA, but it’ll be nice to try it out.
As he said, “What’s the worst that could happen? They can’t really dislike you any more than a normal sub.”
Let’s hope so!
