|Hours of Agonizing...
Remember this lovely post? So, I had four focuses. Hoops (especially anything to help my flow), bellydance, contact juggling, and flow wand. Last night at work, I printed out the rosters with the class descriptions. I poured over what I should take. At first glance, my classes. The primary six are lining up to let me take them! Yes! There was so many gaps. Like only two classes I wanted were the first day there. That's when I opened my mind.
That meant I could add beginner poi, going beyond basics (hoop), twins/minis, hooping for health, fire safety, and urban glow string poi. My focus classes are Breaks, Stalls, Paddles, cabaret bellydance, contact juggling, tribal bellydance, finding your hoopdance, and flow wand. I have two big gaps at 550 Friday and 440 Saturday.
I am so excited to be doing two bellydance classes. Of course, I'm stoked about the beginner poi. I didn't think I'd get to do that this year. Which reminds me I need to make some sock poi. Can I get the right type of socks from Walmart? Although I don't know what the going beyond basics and Getting Tricky! classes will be like regarding the hoop. I wish some of these instructors gave better introductions. The glowsticking makes me think of that one post from Shekinah-Spin.
Although speaking of that crazy chick, I showed someone her poi video and they were like, "Oh, I used to do that at raves." I wanted to scream at him, "No, you glowsticked. I doubt, especially knowing you that you did POI. Freaking idiot." But I didn't. I played nice. Aren't you proud of me?
Regarding my block of no classes, I don't have fans or I would go to the Fan Fundamentals class. I really wish I had fans hanging around. Unless anyone knows where to get fans for under $40. I don't know if I'd learn anything new in Getting Tricky (which is at that time) but I might wind up going to it anyways. At 440, there is absolutely nothing I can take. Freedom in Flow isn't on the sheet yet. I have no clue what it is. One day I want to try double staff but not now. And again, I don't have the stuffs or money.
I am still hoping to get my best friend to come with me. I know I'll meet people and I know I'll make friends. I know that. I just want someone to help me set up my tent and might hold my hand when I'm wanting to recoil back into my shell. And I also know that my new hooping friends will be there somewhere. You get what I'm saying though, right? I will admit having someone there to be my photographer at times seems like a fantastic idea, too.
I guess some people that are like hoop-purests would think I'm crazy for missing other hoop related classes to do other things. I'm not. I mean, sure if I didn't cj, I could take single hoop. If I didn't try beginner poi, I could do prana hoop. I want to try it all. This is killer. For $80, I can take fourteen classes over different disciplines. I mean, if I were to go to Mecca, one class is $10. I guess if I do fancy maths, these classes are essentially $6 each and that's not including the other awesome stuff! Did I do that math right?
I am so pumped. If you are in the vicinity, you should think about going.
