The turning of the leaves. The adding of the sweaters. Back to school and work and making lunches. Back to drop-off and pick up. Goodbye tank tops. Hello school bags. We went to the beach. We went to the amusement park. We went to a baseball game. We did skateboarding, climbing, walking, trampolining, laser tagging and swimming. We saw movies and friends and farm animals and flowers. We ate frozen yogurt and frozen lemonade.
What I learned this Summer was how nice it is to NOT follow a routine. To wake up when you want to, decide how you want to spend the day and then go out and find adventure. Even your own routine city locations can be re-discovered and explored. A Summer break from routine allowed for relaxation and creative thinking. When your time isn’t automatically filled for you, there is much contemplation to be done about what to do.
What to do?
Whatever you want. Imagine that.
A true break from routine.
A great Summer was had.
In dance class it is always routine. Same plies. Same pirouettes. The dance choreography is even called the “routine”.
However, in class and in performance, there always comes a time when a dancer has to improvise.
Summer of improv. Time to take your bow.
Looking forward to an awesome and dancified school year…
