174 classes in 169 days.
27 classes in 26 days in the 101 challenge.
How ironic that the I just read DancingJ's blog right before writing mine, since I was already planning to write about the Advanced Series. But from a different perspective, since I haven't taken it - yet.
My studio happens to offer the Advanced Series three times per week, and is the only place in Vegas that offers it. It's not advertised or anything, but regulars certainly know about it. I've been interested in this for a few months, and I've even had people who take the class tell me I should do it. So last night after class with Sheri (she leads the Advanced Class), I talked to her about doing it. Her reaction surprised me a little bit. She just calmly said that yes I was going to do it, and she wanted me to start taking it a few months before competition starts. That would be around September or October, so she wants me to start in the summer, like June. I like the timing of this, as it gives me a few more months of daily practice with the "normal" classes before I dive into Advanced. Sheri also showed me some interesting stretching things to do after class each day which will help me.
Oh, did you catch that I'm competing this year? I mentioned this to a few teachers last month that I was thinking about this. Apparently, it's now an accepted fact that I'll be doing it!
