Dancing.. Dancing.. Dancing.. she's a Dancing Machine..

There is a bit of insanity in dancing that does everybody a great deal of good. ~Edwin Denby

This little girl is ME! Guess what she is going to do tonight?? Again? I am enrolling in yet another dance class. As you all know, I started out in ballet. As a matter of fact, the picture above is from my very first dance recital. I was a butterfly in 'Alice in Wonderland.' I just finished the 1st grade.

I LOVE dancing. It is the only form of exercise (outside of swimming) that I truly love. Yes, it is exercise. If you doubt me - take one class - just one, then let's talk.

I have taken years and years of ballet, tap, jazz & modern dance. As an adult, I took an Israeli Folk Dance Class and even 1/2 a year of Flamenco. NOW.. now my friends I am on to ballroom dancing. To be exact - LATIN Ballroom dancing.

*********screaming for joy************
My class is at 6pm and it is one hour. Woo Hoo! The first two classes are private. Then, on Friday night there is a social dance. *cringe* Definitely will be nerve wracking, being the new kid (again) and having to dance with people who are really good. But I figure, once I get the hang of this - how much fun it is going to be on Friday nights when they have their social dances??!!! I have a new hobby! My understanding is, they have different themes on Social Nights, and people actually come in costume. So I will be learning ALL social dances, but personally, I am signing up for the Latin ones. (I like to shake my hips! LOL)

I even noticed there is a Latin Cardio class. Hmmmm...

Wish me luck! I will let you know how it goes!!

HOLY COW! You are SO COOL!!!! I LOVE this idea. I, unfortunately, was born with two left feet. My husband was born with two left feet, unfortunately dancing isn't our bag! However, we tried (leading up to that "first dance" for our wedding). I think we were the only couple who flunked out of ballroom dancing!! Can't wait to hear how the class is! Wahoooo!!!
