Shall We Dance?Posted by admin on February 10th, 2008
I have a little secret to share with you – I love dancing. I love ballroom dancing. People might classify ballroom dancing as an oldies dance but I beg to disagree. Watch Dirty Dancing 2, or the movie of Jennifer Lopez and Richard Gere “Shall We Dance” – that is ballroom dancing! Unfortunately, as much as I love to dance, one thing that frustrates me is that you need to have a (good) dance partner when you do it. The male partner is the one controlling and guiding the dance, so you need someone good. And, chances are, when I find someone good enough to be my partner, he is either gay or too short for me. So I turn to the husband ;). He actually likes to dance, he is just “shy” and uncomfortable doing it. You would have to kill him to let him in a dance class. So we turn to dance instructional videos which we can watch at home. I like to browse the videos in DanceCrazy.com since they have great instructional videos with a range of dances Id like to learn. I’d first like to try out doing the Salsa!
Do you know dancing helps you lose weight? And did you know I danced a lot in concerts, plays and productions when I was a teenager? I was already a BIG eater, but I danced a lot – about 2 hours everyday. And it was really cardio dancing. Maybe I need to do that again.
