Dancing Queens

Dancers (I use the term loosely because I included myself in that) are Leigh, Coach Chesney, Flo, Amy and Tiffany)

Thanks for asking about the dance class. It was alot of fun. Although, I found that I am not as coordinated as I would have you all believe !! (Did you really buy into that?) I looked like someone on the floor having severe involuntary muscular spasms. The good thing was we were in a class where no one could see us.
Our dance teacher rocks!! She is the one with the kicking fro. Cute as can be! Her name is Chesney (like Kenny) and she is on the UAB dance team. She's a sweet girl that knows how to make her body move so freely and natural. I was so in awe of her. I tried many times to have "party hands" (a move) like hers but instead it looked like I was waving for "the plane, the plane (tattoo)!". So very pitiful. I am indeed pure 100% unadulterated Caucasian. No groove, no funk in me. I thought that I had some, but last night proved me wrong.
The closest thing I have ever taken to a dance class was at WA Berry High with Coach Honeycutt teaching square dance. Correction, he didn't teach it, a record told us what to do. And I didn't really even do it, I used the opportunity to work the crowd in our co-ed PE class. So, I am very unnatural.
Or the other, my friend, Fabian Sanchez from high school which owns a dance studio THAT BIG DADDY WILL NOT GO TO WITH ME!
But alas! This is WHY I am in class. I am determined to get even a small part of this killer dance so that I can break it out with Flo at our next sisterhood get-together. Next week I hope to have a video of what the dance is supposed to look like. This means that I will not be in the video. I am going to see if Chesney will not be creeped out if I video tape her doing the dance.
I hope that I will see some of you at the next class (Every Thursday night at Dance Et Cetera on 261 in Pelham, drop in no need to sign contracts. Very low key. $15 bucks a class or if you pay ahead for the month it is $35.00. It is the adult Hip Hop class) PLEASE don't let the music die, bring your couch potato self and have fun with us. If anything, it is entertainment to see how spastic I am. It is great comedy in between some real entertainment-the other folks that know how to work it. The more the merrier. I hope to see you -yeah! YOU ! there.
