When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek...


Oh I love to dance. I just love it. I use to dance all the time when I was little; ballet, pointe, jazz, & of course tap. I miss it so but it is slowly easing back into my life. Tonight I went again to a friend's dance studio & got twirled around like a lil doll. I'm sorta graceful when it comes to dancing...walking, well I'll fall at least a hundred times...but dancing, oh I can dance til my feet fall off. I miss ballet but I'm definitely starting to see the art in ballroom dancing. I learned bits of the hustle, salsa, & the cha cha. It was wonderful to just not care about anything for a while.

Doing the cha cha I remembered being little watching my Spanish grandmother dance with the glass of water of her head. I'll have to scan a picture one day. She would dance for hours & hours. I loved watching her. She reminded me of Ginger Rogers. One thing I love about old movies is the random ass dance sequences. Not like the prom scene in She's All that, but real dancing. Ginger Rogers & Fred Astaire who are in the pic up top are just mesmerizing to watch.

This is a short post today because I'm exhausted from dancing & this week...so I'll leave you with my favorite quote & a scene from one of the Fred & Ginger movies. I feel so much better. Thank you everyone for your comments. I wish I could hug you all. =)

"Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, except backwards and in high heels."
