Over the years, I've spent many a class not having a chicken's clue about the exercise/combination.
Maybe it was day 3 of the combo and the teacher didn't really teach, so much as review. Maybe it was crazy technical and I got googly eyed over the teacher or demonstrator's extension/turn-out/feet/musicality and "missed" the movement and counts.
Maybe I was two poorly clenched butt cheeks away from blowing myself across the studio due to the might-as-well-have-pumped-air-into-my-colon salad/yogurt/snack I'd been stupid enough to eat before class.
Whatever the case, as far as dance is concerned, I can follow like the best of 'em.
Enter Blinkbooks, a little e-book -- a clever piece of visual candy, if you will.
MNS spotlight moms Nicole Shaw over at Ninja Mom and the fabulous Jennifer McLester are brilliant blinkbooks authors. I idolize these women. If they had found that a masque made of month-old ham salad would repair an oily T-zone I'd slap that s--t on my face by the barrel. Needless to say, after seeing their fab creations I had to follow in their footsteps.
Little kids might call this copying, not following, but let's not even go there...
Please click on the link below the photo for a look-see at my fledging design skillz -- so novice-level I had to spell skills with a "z." Speaking of the f-word, do that when you get over to Blinkbooks.
I mean FOLLOW. Jeez.
