I thought I could dance....

I'd like to take a moment to talk to y'all about dance.

People might not know that I started taking lessons in the second grade. By my senior year, I had three classes a week, plus a class every day at school. I never majored in dance in college, but I took a class almost every term I was on campus.

Eventually I graduated. I gained weight. I moved to Virginia. I was unhappy. I found a Modern class that didn't mind that I was above the age of 18, but that ended. This fall I started ballet again, and found that I was carrying around too much weight to dance. It broke my heart, and lead to me joining Weight Watchers.

But in spite of all of that, I adore So You Think You Can Dance. Now, while I don't always agree with the judging, or who they select to leave, I do enjoy it.

And now... my favorite routines.. accompanied by YouTube clips (if I can find them)
