The Hip Hip Dance

Tonight at HipHop class I think I got the dance routine a bit more down. Still I looked like I was doing a full body heave rather than an actual dance, but I hid behind Chesney (dance coach) in the mirror so I couldn't see myself (seeing myself alone made me want to heave!). It also helped me with my moves, because I was watching her in the mirror facing me rather than trying to watch her from behind, thus the backwardness (is that a word?). Anyway...
It is a work in progress. It sure ain't pretty!! I asked Chesney to allow me to record the dance we are doing-with her doing what my body is supposed to do. (Again, ain't doing). I have decided that I appear to look more like a trucker trying to do ballet. I also look like a football player ready to receive a punt. Sad. Very sad. But without further ado, here is Chesney rocking it. (I wish I had recorded her closer but if I ask her to allow me to video tape her again I fear she will issue a stalker report...)

One more question...Auburn or Alabama?

Leigh said...

It is our second class. The first time there were 4, last night in the torrential downpour only tow. But the other 2 said tehy wouldn't be there due to other obligations. They will be back next week. We also have been trying to recruit others. We know that there definatley will be 3 or 4 more joining us. That will make 7 or 8 total.

Am I for AL or Au? I am for Alabama (my husband is a die, er, DYE hard AL fan) It is a mixed marriage (my whole family is split this!)

What a cool dance...can I say that you are amazingly cool to do this class. Do you have a dance background? How did you get into it? I haven't "essplored" your blog to see if this is addressed elsewhere...but man...I wish i could do that class, it looks like super fun.

Okay, now I want to sign up! Need to find a class here in Cali!

Leigh said...

Roaming-NO! I cannot dance. Full body heave I say! It's appauling, but I love the dance. It is nice to try something new and step outta ones relm. THey will kick me out before I leave! HAHA.
Ms Jules, you can just join "So ya think you can dance" if you live in Cali! My coach has trained with the choreographer from that show (the man).
