Thursday is fan dancing day–and even though it’s called Fan Dancing, you can use pretty much anything to dance with: no fan required! Ava “TANK” Flave and I are learning a dance (舞子はん) that uses these silk umbrellas. You’d be surprised how many rules there are to hold an umbrella like a woman. And also: show off your neck. I keep hunching my shoulder, and Graceful-sensei keeps shoving it down saying “首！首！” (Neck! Neck!)
We have a pretty big rehearsal coming up next weekend. We’re going to meet a very famous male dancer. I’m excited!
