after school, i taught my cheerleaders the intro part of their dance and one special move that they are going to do in the dance. the move is a semi-handstand/air split. sounds complicated, but it really is not. it’s basically a handstand with only one leg in the air. they picked it up pretty quickly. =D in a typical american school, cheerleaders are expected to do gymnastics and be very strong and athletic. our cheerleaders are not quite what most people would expect, but i am really proud of them because they have come a long way from the shy and pale girls i first met. they did their first public performance a few weeks back, and they even did a stunt! a thigh stand. so i was really happy. =] we are working on a new choreography for a pep rally coming up after spring break. i hope it goes well!
so i somehow twisted my neck this morning. it’s been bothering me all day. i’ve been stretching and massaging it, but it still is difficult to look to the right. =( i wasn’t even doing anything. i had just finished up some morning yoga, and then i decided to crack my neck (bad habit). =((( it is getting better, though.
