I feel so blessed to have a profession that I love! Doing what I enjoy and getting paid for it doesn’t seem like work. I am a certified fitness instructor and started teaching dance in 1985. I used to conduct classes 5 days a week, and I’ve been trying to cut down since my “retirement” when I turned 65 four years ago.
Now I rent a dance studio and teach two days a week, something I hope to continue for the rest of my life, God willing!
Getting ready for the first dance class of this year, I wore my high low skirt that I bought a few years ago, perfect for dancing and looks so feminine. It’s a flowing, sheer fabric that looks amazing when I twirl.
Although I think it looks lovely with a black lace blouse, I regret not having bought the matching blouse at the time, because then it would look like a dress. That way, I could wear it either way.
For jewellery, I chose a black “lace” necklace (looks like lace but is actually metal) and a black “lace” bracelet, hand-made with an up-cycled inner tube from a bicycle tire (very soft and comfortable to wear).
My mom had several two-piece dresses and they were so versatile. I inherited one of them (designer Diane von Furstenberg).
I also have two more skirts with matching tops that I bought at my daughter’s eco-boutique Drizzle and Shine that I can wear together or separately.
I hope you dance!
