In my other life as a teacher, I recently finished a once in a lifetime teaching experience. I learned and then taught about 20 5th graders how to do the dance from Michael Jackson’s Thriller. This was my first time teaching dance and it was a nerve-racking experience. I think one of the great things about teaching is taking a risk and hoping for great results…and the results were great. Over 6 two-hour class periods, these students learned the steps to the dance AND were able to perform it together. It is hard to stress how much work it took for them to all perform it together…it is harder than it seems. Anyway, above is the final performance…that’s my inspiration.
