Dancing


My one claim to fame came when I was just 17. I won a dance contest and the prize was a trip to dance on American Bandstand... It was the coolest.. The guest on the show was Lover Boy and they sang Turn Me Loose. I have the tape of the show. Well anyway I LOVE TO DANCE, my problem being I married a lovely man with 2 left feet and no rhythm. He has agreed to take dance lessons, what a guy. We have finally decided on Ballroom. I am so excited, he is not. What you do for love. Wish us luck..

Well now! That's about as cool a claim to fame as I've read lately! Being in the presence of America's Oldest Living Teenager must have been awesome...

re: the things you do for love. Your hubby is a better man than I. NO amount of lessons would ever be able to graft a right foot on to my "other left" foot, nor would lessons be able to splice that missing rhythm gene into my DNA. Dance lessons would be a complete and total waste of money on me, not to mention time. I'm a "lost cause" in this space...

That is cool! I love to dance too. My hubby does dance and he would love to take ballroom dancing, but Duncan, OK, is not known for its dance studios.

I'm giggling here because A. I love Loverboy...and B. Although my husband can dance, he doesn't.... and C. He gave me a gift certificate years ago (one he made himself) entitling me to have him take ballroom dancing with me.....

We still have yet to do it. I think it was a way to spend more time together...The Army had different plans.

Enjoy those lessons, I bet in the end you all have a great time. I love to dance, or I did, I have had a partner in absentia for years. Billy Idol's "Dancing With Myself" is not my idea of FUN!

Buck,
Dick Clark was very nice, I got to meet him before the show started. I have a feeling my husband will not fair much better, I am just happy he is willing.
