i'm just a literary tease, my reputation's on its knees.

Call Me Twinkle Toes

April 13, 2007

You may not know this about me, but I love to dance. It's true! Two years back, my friend Dominic and I took a salsa dance class at WCCC. We learned a whole repertoire of hot Latin dances from a smelly guy with a cute butt whose name eludes me.

Currently, we are taking ballroom dancing with Step Above Dance in Greensburg, taught by David & Amy Vint. (Call them! 724.832.2687) Dom gets a discount with his job, and since he needed a partner and I am easily sweet talked, I am learning how to do the Foxtrot, Merengue Hustle, Rhumba, Swing, and more for the next six Thursday nights absolutely free. What's not to love about that?

Ballroom dancing skills will come in handy in many situations. Let's say a fella with a weapon says to me, "Dance or Die!" Well... I will be able to wow the gunman with the way I learned to wiggle my hips at last night's session and save my skin!

It's conceivable that, in addition to potentially saving my life, that my ballroom dancing skills will get me a job. Hey, if I can get hired at the same place twice on the basis of my cute and quirky job interview outfits, it's not so far fetched, right? (You may argue that I was hired based on "talent" and "willingness to work the required shifts," but I'd say you are wrong. And then I'd challenge you to a dance off.)

I love dance class. We rename all of the dances so that we can remember them -- There's the Belly Bump, which is exactly what it sounds like, the Drag Queen, & the Coffee Grinder. We laugh a lot during our lessons, especially when the teachers tell me I am too "bouncy" -- I can't help it! (Apparently, bouncy is okay with Latin dances but not with the smooth *cough* stuffy *cough* dances. Sha! Whatev!)

Before you ask, I haven't seen Dancing with the stars, or whatever that television show is called, but I don't need to - I've got David and Amy, and my dance partner Dominic. Anyone want to go dancing?

This sounds like great fun, Moira. No partner, though. :-(
