Never did I have expectations of being a ballerina. I wasn’t interested in going that far. I just liked to move. I like the freedom of it all. I loved to dance.
As a little girl, I liked to dance. I remember taking a modern dance class in middle school and I picked it up again in high school. High school was a big deal because being a part of my dance class meant I had to dance in the spring recital. That was huge for me. I was definitely the tallest girl in the class. It could not have been made any more obvious when we had to wear blue unitards for our performance. I looked like an electric blue streak. Still, I loved it. I remember one of our performances was to the song “Walk Around Heaven”. I remembered every step of that routine for years.
Since then, I’ve taken other classes but I’m definitely feeling the itch again. I want to dance! I want to learn some hip hop choreography. I want to learn some sexy routines like this!
I should mention that I had the DJ play this over and over again at my wedding. My friends and I did the routine start to finish all night!
There’s something about being able to move my body and make it do new things that’s exciting. There’s a freedom in that. When I was single, I used to dance all around my apartment. I would turn on the radio or pop in a CD and choreograph a routine to whatever song came on. I did the same thing while driving in the car. I’m sure if you pulled up next to me, you’d think I was nuts! It was one of my secret single behaviors. Not so secret now.
Once you nail a routine, there’s a confidence that comes with that. Who couldn’t use an extra boost of confidence? Cheers to that! YES!
I’m always on the lookout for things that help me feel good about me. Getting my butt dancing again would be a step in the right direction. Even if it comes in the form of a DVD I order from Amazon! Gotta start somewhere.
What about you? What helps you feel good about you? Any secret single behaviors you care to share? LOL!
