Last night was the final night practicing the quinceañera dance just us girls! We finished the dance, and this weekend they start practicing with the boys (their dates/dance partners). Sharon and I have been practicing with the boys on the weekends (best call ever to separate the groups at first), and they are pretty up to speed too. Things are looking good!
Monday afternoon the girls also get to go and buy their high heels at the mall, and they begged Sharon and me to go with them. It's going to be hilarious.
In general, the girls are more excited than you can probably comprehend. Every time we finish running through the dance, they screech and squeal and jump around and applaud themselves haha. Sharon and I also brought our own heels down to practice last night, and the girls had a blast trying out the dance in our shoes.
We have a little more than a month left to practice, but we feel like we're in great shape! Volunteering to teach this dance has been crazy and frustrating and stressful at times, but I'm so glad I did it. We're having a blast, and if you want to know the truth, some of that screeching and squealing and jumping around post-dance routine is also being contributed by yours truly. :)
And now for videos!
I'm video recording in the first one, but in the second one you can see me out there dancing with the girls.
A few notes about the vids: Sorry, there's no sound. I used the weirdo office camera. It also looks kind of goofy because the girls aren't dancing with the boys, so they're doing all the moves with imaginary caballeros (dates) -- unless Sharon and I are partnering them at the moment. And no, it's not at all perfect right now, but just wait until June!
