My teaching stint is coming to an end.
Today was tech for the Stevie Wonder tribute show the students will be performing in this weekend. I have been working on this show, with these students, for the past nine weeks, thanks to my awesome friend who runs the dance program and brought me in as a guest teacher/choreographer.
I didn’t realize how awesome the show is going to be until I was sitting in the audience watching it all come together. Don’t get me wrong, it’s high school-quality performing. But the overall production is so well done. Not that I’m surprised that she would pull this off. It’s just, I had been in the middle of it so long I didn’t realize it was all happening around me. From the blending of the jazz band and the dance company in shared pieces, to the costumes and video… it’s going to be one hellofa night.
I’m also realizing how much I am actually going to miss this teaching thing.
In any event, this has been exactly what I have needed and I’m so glad my friend realized it – way before I did.
Here’s to another day of creativity…
