Her question was,
"If you could have any talent, what would it be?"
And i'm going to go with - DANCING.
All kinds of dancing. Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Pointe...
& even Salsa, Line, Swing, Ballroom.
Yeah, THAT kind of dancing.
But this is kinda what i look like dancing now...
I took dance when i was little. For 7 years. But since i started at 3, that means i finished at 10. I still to this day don't know why we quit dance. I don't remember asking to quit. I don't remember hating it. In fact, i remember loving it! I was only ten, but i had JUST started on toe when we quit (I'm not sure what the normal starting age for toe shoes is, i just know i started dance at 3 & took for 7 years). My sister took for 10 years & she loved it too. More than i did. I don't know why we quit! One of the reasons we moved to another part of town was to be closer to (a) church, (b) our new school & (c) the dance studio. And then mom took us out of dance. (Why, mom, why??????)(Just kidding - i don't think she reads my blog. But i'm sure she asked if we were okay with it? & we said yeah? I don't know. But i so wish we had stuck to it!)
I sometimes think that if had stuck with it, i would not be the size i am today. Because when you dance regularly you burn more calories. And most dancers i know eat better than i did. And i didn't start gaining a lot of weight until high school.
When i DO lose all this weight, i am going to take some lessons! But i still can't imagine ever being as good as those girl's who have had years of practice...
It's no wonder i love working the dance shows at the theatre. I could watch them dance all day! I just wouldn't mind being one of them. ;)
Dancers: You Rock.
