Tonight my story is short, since I am exhausted and have done so much already. My left ankle hurts and it’s been hurting for a while now. I figured that maybe I should rest? , that might not be a bad idea.
Last year after my Bronze competition in May. I joined a group of ladies and learned a routine in about six weeks to dance in Dance Idol show for Radomir and Devorah Pashever. Our instructor was Gergana Slavova. I think she is from Bulgaria.She was pretty good in building up the routine so we memorize it.I enjoyed every moment dancing with the ladies. But lets talk about the “JUMP” from the chair. The instructor divided us into two groups. Only one group had to jump off the chair. I was in the group of course. I say to the instructor , I cannot jump, thinking in my mind “are you crazy? jumping wearing 3 inches high heals shoes?”. The instructor basically put me in my place and said: “Oh , you are jumping”. If you know me little, you know that I LOVE challenges, so I really did not resist her decision. The first ten jumps were kind of not jumping. Eventually after a lot of repetition, I had the confidence to go up the chair and jump comfortably.
The location was Paragon dance studio in Tempe. Here is the video of our dance.
The girls were lots of fun. We laughed so much at our geeky moves and also shared frustration moments. The instructor used to scream and then wonder why she is screaming!. I loved the variety and diversity of the dance and dancers. The instructor trusted couple of us including me to dance in first row so I had a lot of responsibility not to mess up. So you think pressure was on?
Dance Idol – The gals
The dance was a success from what we heard, so we were very pleased. After the show I had a birthday party to attend for a very good friends of mine Lawrence and Claudia Garcia. They are also dancers that dance Salsa.I spent the night dancing Salsa and got home with swollen feet. It is always amazing to watch how my foot size grows after dancing. It makes me look like that little dancer with the giant feet. Oh well, as long as I dance , that all that matters.
A very talented photographer was in the audience and he took hundreds of shots . Here is one of his best shots of me. Garry Wilmore, ladies and gentleman. I’m looking forward to work with him on a photo shoot soon. I just have to wait till I get done with the main even of next week, the wedding.
Goodnight my readers, I hope you enjoy my little story for you. Stay tuned, more to come !
