I Felt Like Giving Up

For the past 3 weeks , our high school batchmates would meet at the house of the president of our batch. We are practicing our group’s dance for our homecoming on May. We practice after office hours, 6:00 in the evening onwards, once a week. So last night, I practiced with them again for the 3rd time . Oh my, I really cannot perfect that step where the feet and the hands works together. I begged them , I will already back out because I cannot do that step. But they won’t let me , instead the choreographer taught us step by step , feet first , then the hands next. I got it. However, when they are danced together, I really can’t do it right again. Well, let’s see tonight , because we will again have our practice again. I prayed hard for God to help me get that difficult step already . Good thing, I am one of those at the back . Oh my! It's hard to memorize a dance when one is already aging.

Yes, that's what they told me. I arrived late at the practice. The choreographer have simplified the steps that is intricate. Then , he added a new formation as we dance because they went to the school auditorium and saw how big the stage is, so he has to conform to the size of the stage. Gosh, I am confused again. ha ha ha

Thank you. Our gay batchmate from elementary , since at high school we are already all girls, said that if I will not join, he will not join anymore also. ha ha ha I hope I really can get the dance. The music will be sent to our phones this week so we can practice at home. The music is Fame by Irene Cara.

@SIMPLYD Fame is indeed a danceable song, with the pointing of fingers up, like John Travolta in Grease and Saturday Night Fever. i was also a disco goer during my staff nurse years here, but eventually, my dancing skills waned down when the discos here stopped operating. i also still preferred folk dances. hehehe!

Well good luck on your dance. I am surprised that you are 'forced' to stay when you are having so much difficulty. Usually, I am not talented either...and I find the pressure unbearable. You are right... with age you feel you just can't keep up. But you seem to have supportive people, so hang in there!
