Fantasy and Fitness finally meet, then part ways

About 4 years after the original idea of combining fantasy with fitness, Siren School announced its program aptly called Fantasy Fitness. The idea was participants could participate in hour-long fantasy-themed dance classes that would enable them to 'take a vacation from the ordinary' if only for an hour. Dance genres included Genie Belly Bliss, Bollywood Blast, Island Drums, Gypsy Caravan, and more, all with themed costume bits to help get into character. The program launch took place when I was really dealing with some of the ickiest parts of my health situation.

Unsurprisingly, nothing came of it, which turned out to be a blessing because I really couldn't do much but sit in bed and come up with hairbrained schemes. Turns out, the project was merely waiting for the right time. I just didn't know it yet.
