Last night’s episode was …. I have no words. BEST SHOW EVER. Not only was Lady Gaga a guest judge (hilarious, insightful, and def fun to see as a real human being – especially when she threw her GINORMOUS shoe), but most importantly, the dances were out of this world. Seriously… SO SO SO good.
I can’t say enough how much I love watching dance… especially dance that makes me emotional. Whether I am laughing, clapping, gasping, or crying, I get lost in watching a truly incredible dance performance.
One of my biggest regrets in my life thus far is that I did not start taking professional dance classes at an earlier age. My leaps are pathetic – my ballet is weak – and I could not hold a candle to the dancers who are on SYTYCD. Not even to the people who try out for this show – I would NEVER try out for this show.
obviously not me
My mom put me in dance when I was 3 and I HATED my teacher, so I quit the night of the dress rehearsal. Like I said before, it is a huge regret of mine. I took dance for only 8 years at a studio, right up until I graduated from high school. I wasn’t the best in my class at the time… but now that I look back, I really think I could have been. I don’t have a lot of confidence in myself as a dancer. Probably because I wasn’t told enough by my teachers that I was amazing…
Since high school – my dance history: I was part of the UConn Tap Team for a year (as seen on the left above), then I took a class while at UT, and when I lived in ATL, I took classes at Dance 101 for six months. Now I am currently taking Zumba, Hip Hop, and a Dance Jam class at the gym… and I am not completely content. I need more dance.
Not me… in my dreams perhaps
I can honestly say that every second I spend dancing, I feel free. I am 100% joy, at peace, in a heavenly state. Whether I am just shaking my booty, or standing in front of a mirror pretending I remember how to do a ballet barre warm-up, I am in my own little happy world where nothing bad can touch me.
I am so in my happy place here….
I love all your dancing photos – you DO look happy dancing and I think it’s great that your pursue it!
Can’t wait to see more pictures from the wedding!
So glad to know I am not the only one!! I am big-time in love with dancing, but never took it professionally or did anything with it. Just took dance as a kid and then was on the dance team in high school. I love it and miss it so very much!! There isn’t anything around me that I could take either, or I so would!
Awww… it’s never too late to start dancing missy!!!
I love all your dance moves 😉
OH-MY-GOSH, it was seriously AMAZING! I just sat there with my jaw completely dropped, I re-watched I think five of the routines. I am NOT a Gaga fan, but I thought she was a great judge. With each passing episode I love Tad more and more…Mel is still my fave tho! (SOOOO glad Jess and Jordan are gone, by far my least faves from the beginning!)
Sounds like our dance stories are pretty similar…I was also in dance when I was little but quit right before the recital because I hated the costume (I know…DIVA). Then in middle school I got REALLY in to dance again and was on a competitive team and then danced for my high school’s team. I’m with you though, I really really really regret not sticking with it as a kid, I think I could have been pretty good! 🙂
I’m not sure if there is a studio where you live, but you should totally check out dance trance! It is so much fun and it reminds me of all the dance classes I took as a kid. The website is http://www.dancetrancefitness.com!
