get up and dance

image here

i don't think i have ever mentioned on my blog how much i love to dance..as a youngin i danced ballet for 6 years and was in the nutcracker and was so excited when i was in the 'party scene', i wish i had pictures to show you but they are all at my parents the ringlets et all! ohh and cotillion helped me learn the fox trot, waltz..i won the rock dance one year and got a 12 pack of maxell blank tapes, thrilled i tell you! (do kids even have cotillion anymore?)
at every family get together there is a dance-off, where my mom always takes the spot light and takes the cake for best dancer..& the best part of going to hear live music is so you can shake it a little...dancing is such a release!

when i ran across this video at Sarah's blog i had to re-post it..it made my day, thanks sarah!! some of those flicks especially white nights with Gregory Hines and Mikhail Baryshnikov ...wasn't that the best flick ever..?! flashdance..ohh i can't even tell you how much i used to re-do all her dancing scenes in my bedroom..dirty dancing is ohh so good..john travolta, no problem moving his hips..you gotta LOVE a guy who can dance!
(the only 2 movies it was missing: xanadu and staying alive)

i hope this makes you tap your toes just a wee bit ..have a happy day

I LOVE BALLET :) I was a ballet dancer too! I danced the nutcracker 14 seasons! I think I was seriously every part!

For some odd reason...my mother let me decide at age 6 if I wanted to take ballet or piano. And I chose piano. Bad call! I'm the biggest wannabe ballerina. I love all the classes that use the barre.....and I would have loved to have danced as a child.

If only I had a daughter.....:)

I danced for 13 years and love to dance. My daughter is dancing and I cry when I see her perform. Dance is the best.
