I didn’t mention this in any of my earlier posts but I finally did what many of you have been telling me to do and that was to take a lesson outside the confines of the Famous Franchise. Oh, and not a group lesson but an actual private lesson. See, the new place has a special on a first lesson which was 30 minutes for free and how does one turn down free?
It was weird at first. I’m putting on my shoes asking “Am I really doing this?” But, by then it was too late to back out. I had visions of OwnerGuy and Z breaking down the door and tossing a bag over my head and dragging me out of the studio.
Decided to work on a dance I don’t do at the Famous Franchise to avoid confusion with the terminology. We got a lot done in the short time. I think some of the steps were similar to ones I’ve done in other dances so they just came kind of quickly. Yeah, maybe I am a natural dancer after all.
The price break isn’t as big as I might have thought but you don’t have to lock into a long term commitment which is nice. We’ve set up a lesson for next week and then I’ll decide how many more to commit to.
But the important thing is now I have to come up with a better name for the studio and something to call this person. There are complications that I’ll keep mysterious for now. So I might have to be more vague than you’d like.
Now, if I had been smart, I would have done this before re-enlisting at the Famous Franchise. Still, even if it isn’t a replacement, I think there is much to be gained by working with someone else.
At least this first lesson was a lot of fun and I think her style meshes pretty well with me so it will be interesting to see how this pans out over time.
