Good news x2. Coach likes the gown and no pain at our lesson

5 Nov

I have never been so nervous about a dance lesson!  Debuting the new gown that was specifically created to make our coach, Young Ryu happy and the first time dancing in a week.  Actually, in my head I was fine, but my body betrays me at times like this and I get sweaty palms, bubbling tummy and generally shaking all over.  Years ago I had this happen when I was going to do a speech somewhere and I was so mentally calm about it (I have almost zero fear of public speaking) I thought I must be coming down with a bad stomach bug! Now I know it is a mind/body disconnect and just try to tell the body to calm down:-)

So he took a look and said “now THAT’S a ballgown!” so we are good to go from the coach front.  Dancing also went quite well, with just a few twinges but no “zings” of pain.  Yaaaaay!

Still lots of work to do on the gown to get ready for the Grand Ball on Friday, but I will try to post some pics tonight.
