So um there is a pep rally on Friday at work and the students are all jazzed. The new principal is trying to promote school spirit. 7 female teachers are dancing to a song and the students have been asking for 2 weeks if I was going to dance. I denied it. I said no. I told them they only wanted teachers and I am just a sub- albeit I usually only sub at this school and am well known. I said I couldn't dance. I did everything to deny it. I gave in and spoke to our lovely choreographer, and I am dancing on Friday. The kids don't know.
I'm prepared to make a fool of myself. I'm prepared to be 3-4 steps behind every other teacher, to forget the moves, to bump into the other teachers, to be laughed at, whatever. I'm jazzed.
So without further adieu, here's what I'm going to be dancing to:
The kids will love it!!! They eat this stuff up. Here's the first minute of the dance that I have down. A special treat for you readers. And OMG my legs are killing me after practicing for this. It is so hard to dance in my room to this.
I used the webcam on my computer to tape it just so I could watch it and check on the timing. I want to get it down.
My moves are completely different than the female teachers who are going to be behind me. I am dancing in front. They are in the background and are going three steps forward and then back, waving their arms up and down in unison while I'm drumming. Then when I turn around and flip the teachers begin drumming and doing what I was doing, then they quickly return to the arm wave as I flip back around. Then I go 3 steps to the left/right as I'm pointing when in the song they are saying "they call me her etc." various teachers are walking up next to me and I'm pointing to them. I need to get the part down after the naming when they say "they call me quiet, but I'm a riot" and throw my hands back quicker. I have the first minute down, but there's still a couple minutes to go.
