Updates from Kaitlin
While my quarantine began as an early effort (March 12) to avoid public transit as someone with an autoimmune condition, the rest of the city quickly hunkered down with me. I'm lucky enough to still be working in my job as a Grant Writer for a local nonprofit, and have spent a lot of time balancing work, artistic practice, and the love of my husband, bunny, and cat -- all in a small space.
Here are some of the things I've been doing to live my best life indoors:
1. I filled out the census -- it was an easy online completion, and I was happy to get information to the government that will inform essential services in my area.
a. I started by practicing with my old go-to instructional dance DVDs and appreciating the stylistic differences of my favorite dancers.
b. I found instructors I used to work with who moved away, and have purchased videos and attended online class with them -- it's a great way to support people you've lost a connection with, like my favorite Pilates teacher!
c. I signed up for a 2-week dance fitness challenge that keeps in line with my trying to get my AFAA certification (delayed because I need to do in-person CPR/AED training).
d. I've built at least 1-2 hours into every day to move and be in my body.
3. I've spent lots of time catching up with old friends from out of the blue -- will be on video chat with my best friends from college this week, thanks to Zoom!
That's all for me from Harlem!
Can't wait to dance with Mosaic again.
