Fear = Conquered

I was invited to take part in a dance class last night. A burlesque dance class.

First of all, I’m starting to realize how bad my social anxiety is when I’m around people I don’t know. Thankfully I knew some of the girls that were going and I saw Katy on my way in and she introduced me to some people. (Thanks Katy!)

Once I signed up and had my boa in hand (yes… really!) I was feeling more and more comfortable. My self consciousness was with me for a bit, but after a while I forgot there were a room full of girls and tried my hardest to learn the steps.

Katy, Bess, me and Kiran

After this picture, we claimed our chairs (I know, I know)


Soon after we were dancing it up!

After the dancing, there were feathers EVERYWHERE!

And remember.. if I can do it, you can too!

  1. That looks like fun! I know what you mean about social anxiety – I have it bad myself. That looks more like my speed than the pole dancing Nic wanted me to do. 🙂

  2. I left too early to see all the feathers on the floor… too funny! Great job last night, Kelly. Let’s tackle Dance Trance next. 🙂

  4. Ooooh I remember reading this when I saw it linked to in another post (which was probably linked to from another post, etc, lol)…AND watching the video. It looks like so much fun! And terrifying, too, haha. I like the picture of the quote at the end…it’s very welcoming and inviting. I think if I were to try burlesque dancing I would want to try it there!
