1st Zumba Class

I drug my sister out to try out a Zumba class at a newer place in town called Knockout Dance and Fitness.  They offer your first class free and since I needed to do some classes for the challenge anyway I decided to take the opportunity.

Dancing

I practiced a routine I learned in my jazz dance class about one million times today, trying to get it perfect.  I'm quite awesome at it now and kind of wish I could go back in time and show off my skills haha. 

I also moved heavy furniture out of my apartment since I'm moving.  I managed to eat a fully organic salad though!  Very productive day~

Friday Funky Sexy with James Ervin

I've been ranting about James of late. What amazes me about him is the expressiveness of his body. He can say things with little flips of shoulder or foot, that I can appreciate, but never replicate. He's fluent, I'm mute.

Salsa Mondays

Back on again with Jose Rosario at Sandra Cameron. My salsa skills progress more slowly than a snail in winter, but they progress.

Naked Villany

Being naked approaches being revolutionary; going barefoot is mere populism.

~ John Updike

Image: MUNICH March 9, 1912. -- The case of the Parisian dancer, Adoree Villany, who dances without clothing, and who was charged with giving an immoral performance here last November before an invited audience of painters, sculptors, and Academicians, came up for trial on Thursday, and ended in the acquittal of Mile, Villany and her theatrical managers. (The New York Times).

Dancing

Went to my usual Monday night swing dance and danced for about an hour and a half.  Not as many people there as usual, but hopefully next week will be better.

Dance Dance Revolution

I'm teaching 3 hours of dance classes to 50 girls aged 8 to 15 tonight - pro bono! 

Pro bono is apparently french for "Boy will my knees hurt tomorrow!" 

Must remember to ice them tonight.

Oliver Steele on Body Building and Being the Only Boy in Dance Class

Oliver and his wife Teri are the founders of STEELEDANCE, and both are on the faculty at Dance New Amsterdam. Last week we talked with Teri. Today, we get the other side of the story from Oliver.

I started dancing with gymnastics, actually, when I was ten or so. And I always wanted to do the girl's exercises on the floor, and I always wondered why the men couldn’t do gymnastics to music. I just enjoyed that dance aspect so much. When I was 16, a friend of mine was dancing in a jazz group and wanted me to join. I said, if there’s ever a boy who shows up to practice let me know, cause I’ll come too. I just don’t want to be the only one. One day she called and said, "We have another boy!" But, of course, I went, and the boy wasn’t there. But I was hooked, and I didn’t care.
