The Evolution of Dance…

Ok, this is too funny.
As someone who loves to dance this made me cry with laughter.
  When I was a child I would dance to the Peter Pan soundtrack, at nine years old we danced like MANIACS to Hooked on Classics, in Junior High in was Pom Pon routines to Salt -n- Peppa and the like, High School was 80% African American and there were a handful of us white girls who could hold our own on the dance floor…ya know, little dance routines to L.L. Cool J and MC Hammer.  Two years later I morphed into a full blown Country Line Dancer, then a Two Stepper…a few years after that it was Salsa lessons and then a couple years ago Tango (Oh, how I love and miss Tango…sigh.)
 I’ve experienced an evolution of dance myself and have shook my money maker to every song in this hilarious video (which by the way reminds me of one of our family weddings…if you have never been to party hosted by my extended family…you are MISSING OUT!)
I don’t want to take away from my Macaron happiness but…when was the last time YOU DANCED???

    I danced in the kitchen tonight….to a song that I was listening to on my iTouch while I cleaned up the dinner dishes! LOVE LOVE LOVE to dance….had no lessons, though, I just fake it like I know what I’m doing, nobody’s asked me to leave the floor yet!

    My favorite time with my husband is when the country music’s on the kitchen radio and we slow dance on the hardwood.
    Fun post, girlfriend!

    I used to love to dance so much but have not in a while. Love the video! Anne Marie’s MC Hammer story above is an all time favorite vision I have in my head 🙂 Girl is eclectic!

    Hmm, the video didn’t come up for me. I was in drill team in high school. I started clogging a few years ago. I have a blog for the clogging group in which I participate. It is We have so much fun!

    Très amusant. J’adore danser.
    Little thing I had in my head a little while back, you were talking about your wisteria and hoping they would bloom this year. Apparently the secret is to prune them really hard. I will check out with this lovely lady gardener again, or maybe on line you might find advice. Hope you find this helpful. Come and visit sometimes. Take care.
    A bientôt. 🙂

    Loved this! Seems I dance only at weddings. I am a privileged one though – having been on the dance floor with your extended family. Now THAT was entertainment!

    as a mom of three kids with SOUL …

    …there’s nothing I loved more than to watch all three of you dance (together)

    …this was my entertainment on Monroe St.

    Thanks for stopping by and becoming a follower. Sorry you could not find the comments. It is always at the end of each post. Maybe I need to redo it.
    I am in Oklahoma.
    And by the way, you have the most beautiful family…julie
