Chicks who did kicks aren't kicking anymore/ They're doing choreography

I went to the Diwali festival tonight to see the festivities and eat the food. The dinner, which was heavily subsidized by Associated Student Government funding, only cost $2 to ticket-buyers. So while not free Indian food, it was pretty darn near to free Indian food.

I was almost moved to tears¹ by the Classical Fusion dance done by the Rec Center class. I have been taking the half-hour per week classes offered by Employee Health and Well-Being², and these ladies (a different class, but with the same teacher) meet for an hour a week to learn and practice their dances. Looking at the progress we've made, I was only expecting twice as much progress from them (so rather than elephants running into each other and bursting out laughing then forgetting the whole routine the following week, they would be very graceful, nimble elephants tittering in a ladylike fashion and forgetting half of the routine the following week) but they had a whole routine and choreography and were very graceful and good at what they were doing. It was amazing to see what they'd learned in less than a semester!

I am still glad that I am in the half-hour class, though, because I got to watch comfortably from the audience instead of running into everyone on stage dancing in front of everyone.

¹ This is not that hard. I am having both PMS and flu-shot reactions right now, which means that I am hot and cold and weak and on an emotional roller coaster. It's fun times.
