Practicing Step

Practicing Step

Yesterday my step instructor Sandy (who happens to be my Los Olivos neighbor) invited me over to her house so she could begin to teach my how to teach step aerobics. We wrote down an intermediate level routine and went over how to break everything down. I got some music from her and borrowed a step so I could begin practicing my cueing and memorizing the routine. Today i practiced for a few hours and I think I am getting the hang of it, though i believe it is much harder to pick up compared to Turbo Kick! For one, you have to make up all your routines from scratch, whereas Turbo is pre-choreographed. You also need your own music. And its more confusing in general because you have to make sure you switch up your leading foot when putting routines together. Sandy is an advanced teacher so the routines i am learning are from her arsenal – definitely not for beginners. I’d probably do better as a teacher if i started off with a basic level, but man i don’t know if i could hang because those routines would be so boring!! Initially i am learning to teach so i can fill in for Sandy as a substitute teacher when she can’t teach her class. But eventually i may teach my own step class…sometime in the far future! I believe I will be subbing for Sandy’s class June 3rd, so that is coming up really soon and i don’t feel prepared yet at all.

On this day..
