Four weeks ago I started teaching workshops by myself for the first time. I checked that I had all of my materials twenty-seven times before leaving the office. I have heard Rachel and Simone teach this material so many times that I have their jokes memorized. I felt ready, confidant, excited.
At GLI we start every workshop with Che Che. Che Che is a call and response activity with sound and movement that gets everyone moving, having fun, looking and acting silly. The goal is to stop thinking, to turn off your brain and let your body make the first sound and movement you can think of, no self judgment, no self doubt.
