Do the grapevine and sparkle hands...

Adventures in Physical Education this week included me getting to do aerobics and dance. No busted ankle this time, but certainly a wounded pride. The only people I have seen express delight at the fact we're meant to practice what we're going to preach are non-teachers themselves. Or possibly those who have already got their qualifications and are no longer held accountable for wanting to storm out of gymnasiums. I never quite understood the attitude teachers have shown at every professional development seminar I have participated in up until now, but it's suddenly all making perfect sense.

Still, you'll be sad to know that there were no cameras around as I showed off my brilliant inability to know right from left and that verily, I do not boogie-down very convincingly at all. In fact, I'm that awful kid who stands at the back and snickers at everyone else - until we perform something which requires us to do a full set including incremental revolution and suddenly I'm the kid at the front, hoping that everyone's too embarassed to be bothering about her. I suppose a good aspect of this is that I will fully comprehend the proclivities of my students.

The best news is that, in two weeks time, I'll be co-teaching a ballroom-style dance lesson.
