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….
