Another Performance

Standard

It was time again for a new dance performance

Tap and Freestyle.

For Tap we did a Tango – routine to

‘Perhaps, perhaps,  perhaps’

 

 

followed by another routine to ‘my future husband’ – Megan Trainer.

I loved every bit.

This was the outfit!

 

 

For Freestyle we danced to ‘Shut up and dance’

we wore a lovely red skirt with petticoat, silver belt, white T-shirt and red scarf.

 

I did love the petticoat, it makes dancing even more fun!

We also did a great routine to Justin Timberlake – I got this feeling:

 

We had a fantastic time, so did the audience.

Broadway next…… ?????  🙂

As it is my birthday today, I had the idea of following RoSy’s idea and jot things down which I love and come to my mind right now.

Well I am not a teenager anymore and it is hard to think of 53 things so I went for 13 things as it is my birthdate.

I have had busy weeks and even in my  holiday I have been busy so I haven’t been reading blogs as much lately.

I had my God – Daughter staying with me and I showed her around London.  We had a great time together and so much fun, saw many places, went to the Theatre, visited Mme Tussauds, shopped in Harrods (not really)  and walked miles to see the typical London sites.  She liked it very much and wants to come again, I am very happy!

 In Madame Tussauds I met some great people:

I had breakfast at Tiffany’s with Audrey Hepburn

Wow it was fun mixing with the famous but exhausting too. Glad to be back at home on my sofa just dreaming about George….  🙂

So here are my 5 minutes of fame:

This is me, aged 25 being Liza Minelli in the opening number from “Cabaret”.

This was our Christmas Party in the Holiday Inn where I worked for 2 years.

I guess it was the start of my dancing passion….  🙂

I so love London and if you ever come to London I am more than happy to show you around!

Wishing all a wonderful new week,

enjoy the beautiful moments,

spread love and don’t forget to smile!

I am so happy and I need to share my happiness!

As you all know I love dancing and I do take tap dance lessons.

tap1No not this one…….

But…. with these……

Our next venture is exam time again for Gold bar 2 this time.

Did I really make it that far, I ask myself.

The best thing is…..

we do 3 dances for the exam and we have learnt 2 of them so far….

a Tango

and

wait for it…

a Charleston.

tap

The 3rd one…. I don’t know, and I don’t mind as I am so in love with the first 2.

Every time we have an exam I think it can’t get better and every time it does get better.

I love the steps and I love the music.

Our teacher is the best.

He is so much fun, is patient, is funny and believes in us!

Here are my two tap heroes: (apart from my teacher)

My Amazing Day Out

Standard

As you all know it started like this:

A chat with my friend Ralph about my dream , to dance with James Jordan, a professional dancer in the TV Show “Strictly come dancing“…. the next email said “surprise” and I had the lesson with James….. unbelievable…..I could not believe it. Well the date was booked and it finally happened last Sunday.

I was allowed to take friends with me and I chose my dance teacher Kevin and my dance friend Julie. We set off to Maidstone to the hotel. We were well in time and waited in the bar to be collected by James. We all recognised him straight away and were a little bit nervous.

James took us to a big hall where there was a dance floor in the middle. After a small introduction and checking what I like to dance and how much I can do already, he started to show me the steps with handmovements. It looks so great when he does it and it is not so easy when I do it myself. As James says: practice and it needs to go into muscle memory. I wished my muscles had more memory. 🙂

dJames and me dancing

He showed me, he corrected me, (of course I did it slightly wrong) he did it with me, he looked at me on my own, we did some steps in hold….. and he taught me. He is a great teacher and no doubt all celebrities have lots of fun practising with him. It is rather hard to do the steps and learn the hands at the same time, I noticed but James was patient. The pictures are a bit blurred as we were moving all the time.

I am sure Craig (one of the judges in the TV show Strictly come dancing) would have given us a 7 but Len surely a 10!

James is an easy going teacher and great fun to dance with. He is cheerful, chatty and it made the whole experience great fun and we had a laugh. We chatted all together about his dancing and the partners he had over the years and it was really interesting. At the end we all asked him to sign and took pictures with him.

His wife Ola was next to us and of course we also asked her to pose with us and sign the book and had a small chat.

When my hour was finished I felt really great and I enjoyed every minute of it.

My dream Dancing with James Jordan has been fulfilled and I felt fabulous.

A very  big no huge thank you to my friend Ralph for making this possible for me.

Do something wonderful.
People may imitate it.
