Dance Dance

I'm not the world's best dancer.  I'm short, ridiculously non-flexible, overweight and I have no upper body strength.  I'm working on fixing a great many of those problems, but at 37, it's an uphill battle.

My favorite show is So You Think You Can Dance.  I know I'll never be like Allison Holker or Eliana Girard.  I have no delusions there.  But I don't want to be.  Those two women are, in my opinion, two of the best female dancers there are.

Why am I beating up my body weekly in this dance class?  Because I love it.  I love to dance.  I'm not the best, or more beautiful, but dancing makes my soul feel lighter.  It makes me happy.

Also, there is little chance there will be photographic evidence of any kind that I have ever danced.  But here's some dances that I love:

Eliana (with Alex) - Contemporary

Chehon (with Allison) - Contemporary

Chehon (with Kathryn) - Contemporary
