Salsa…The End…

So, Tuesday was my last Salsa class…at least for a few months.  I enjoyed the class and learned some things I didn’t know, which was easy considering I didn’t know much Salsa to begin with. The class was good and I’ll miss dancing with my classmates, but I was too tired from the racing from one town to another after work to get to class. I’m sure things will be different in the Spring.

Well, this is the “cleanest” Salsa I have found…so far…

This is why God has blessed me with the ability to dance…so that I can bring cleanliness to the dance floor!


Waltz – Rumer Willis & Val Chmerkovskiy

Perhaps this has been posted before, but it’s worth sharing again.  I absolutely LOVE watching the Waltz and this is a beautiful routine…especially that part that I’ve seen so many times in my head, yet never saw anyone dance before!   🙂

Nyle DiMarco – Tango

I’m a wee bit late in sharing this AMAZING dance as I would normally have posted this on Tuesday, but better late than never.   🙂

I still can’t get over the fact that this man is completely deaf!  I’m inspired and motivated to get better at dancing.  For years I’ve been told that I’m a very good follower, but considering there aren’t many male ballroom dancers where I live, I feel like I’m stuck in a rut. I’ve gone so far as to post an ad on craigslist looking for a practice partner. Yeah, you can imagine how well that went, but I had to try, right?!  If you never ask, then the answer will always be no.  😉   I did get one positive response and we’re friends to this day…just hard to get together to practice given busy schedules. So, that craigslist ad wasn’t a total bust.   🙂

P.S.  Tango is one of my least favorite dances along with the Paso Doble.  I dislike these 2 dances so much, that I usually don’t even watch when they come on, but hey, this is a deaf man dancing his booty off, so yes, I’m going to watch because I’m so amazed that he can dance so well considering he can NOT hear a single thing!

I can’t wait to go dancing tonight!  🙂

Well, on to the video.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

Rumba Class

Just for the record, today is Monday, April 4, 2016 and i is now 9:28pm. I have figured out that the date on this blog changes after 8pm Eastern Standard time, so it will undoubtedly read April 5th when I hit the “publish” button.

Anyway, I just got home a short time ago from my Rumba class and have to say I enjoyed tonight the most since class began. We only had 3 guys (#4 left to go do something, but came back for the intermediate class) but it was fine since there were only 3 females (including the instructor). It just felt really good and the guys were on the money. I wish I could stay for the intermediate class, but then I would get home too late since it’s a 30 minute drive home.

I didn’t go to the gym at all last week and I really want to go in the morning. I have to find another way to get in some cardio since I can no longer jog on the treadmill since it’s beginning to hurt my knees when I dance. I’ve always known that dancers don’t run for that very reason, but I was working toward another goal…I’m disappointed that I won’t be able to accomplish that goal…at least NOT on the treadmill.   😦    I wish treadmills were padded like tracks are now padded!!!

I’m going to attempt to go dancing again this Wednesday after work. I have to drive down to that neck of the woods to stop by the chiropractor, so I might as well go dancing while I’m down there.

I’m watching ‘Dancing With The Stars’ and I just saw Wanya and Lindsay do a move that I’ve only seen in my head. I saw Rumer Willis and Val do a move last season that I had only seen in my head. I get so excited when that happens because I’m always curious to know if it is humanly possible to do such moves since I am NOT an advanced dancer nor a choreographer. Now, I’m starting to second-guess myself…perhaps I have seen that move that Wanya and Lindsay just did, but in my mind, I’ve only ever seen it in my mind with me dancing it. I guess I have to see it again and also watch my favorite Waltz routine danced by Mayo Alanen.

I just watched Nyle DiMarco dance the Tango. Anybody who knows me knows I can’t stand the Tango, but Nyle is an AMAZING dancer!!!  The man is completely DEAF and he just KILLED it!!!  I can’t wait to post these videos!!!   🙂   Anyone who uses an excuse to not even try to dance, has NO EXCUSE after watching a deaf man dance!!!
