This is a very special post for me. Robin Konie, my former dance teacher in college, is one of the coolest people I know and was one of the best dance teachers I ever had. She truly transformed my body and gave me a leg up in the dance world. She's also so chill and fun that she made dance feel chill and fun. Whenever I have teaching blocks I always think back to Robin and her amazing classes. I think all who had her would agree.
Isn't she so cute? Her blog, Thank Your Body, is all about body awareness and a blog that celebrates the incredible human body. She's also a bit quirky. Here are some Robinisms:
~ Fiercely celebrates Pirate Day. All of us college kids would dress up like pirates on this day and create piratelike routines.
~ Decided to be left handed for one month, just because. Can you imagine?
~ Has decided for an entire week she will not look in a mirror to help promote inner beauty.
~ We had our final at her house where she videotaped her class dancing on a bridge.
~ For their wedding announcements, Robin and her then fiance dressed up like super heroes with capes, props, cheesy grins, and major acrobatic jumps.
~ Wore striped knee high socks at her wedding. With white Mary Janes.
