In a parallel universe I would have taken dance lessons instead of piano. Or as well as piano. Regardless I would have taken dance lessons.
As a child I loved to dance. I danced all the time. My mom said I would often be found in the middle of the mall dancing. Anywhere there was music I was moving to it. In Jounior High, when you take that awkward social dance unit in Phys Ed, I loved it. I got my best marks. I loved learning the Jive from my dad and later my boyfriend’s Brother and Sister in-law. I really enjoyed being thrown around and doing stunts.
I just watched the finally for SYTYCD (So you Think You Can Dance) and Lauren won. She was one of my faves. So was Kent. I’ll let you in on a little secret. Every time I watch that show I mentally tell myself “If you took dance lessons you would be just as good or better.” The truth is I didn’t take dance, and the truth is I am not flexible. But who knows, if I had (taken lessons that is) maybe I would have won season 1 ( In that parallel universe). No wait I’m too old. Man the Space-time continuum sucks.
