Gettin' Jiggy Wit It



I love it all. 

Modern.

Ballroom.

Swing.

Free stylin at a club...all night long

I seriously love every form of dance you could possibly imagine. It is all so beautiful and FUN TO WATCH AND DO!

I got a late start when it came to dance - I didn't start taking ballet, jazz and tap until middle school. But once I started...I couldn't STOP! I'm into anything and everything dance. I like watching dance competitions on ESPN. I would give up everything to go watch the New York City Ballet perform. I actually want to see River Dance - badly. Heck, I would even go to watch someone's little sister perform in a recital if it meant I got to see DANCE!

But most notably, I am willing to dance with anyone, anywhere, anytime. Really. I'm always the last one to leave the dance floor at weddings. I tend to create a "dance floor" in venues that don't actually have a dance floor. Sometimes, one can even catch me breaking down in the privacy of my own office at work...no lie.

Me... bustin a move with friends this weekend

But I must say, my absolute FAVORITE is dancing with Mr. Ruby. We have such a great time whether it's in the privacy in our own living room (ok, ok cheese alert...I know) or cuttin a rug at pal's wedding. And to think, it all started when we took ballroom dance classes together back in high school before we went to homecoming together. HAHA!

So, what's the reason for my dance fever and all this dance talk?

Because I am giddy with anticipation and counting down the days until So You Think You Can Dance begins. That's why. 

I literally have ants in my pants. I cannot WAIT for this show to begin. I'm counting down the days until May 31st!!!! This truly is the one and only show that I cannot live without. I have followed the show since the beginning - it has THE most amazing dancers/choreographers that I have ever seen. 

Even if you know nothing about dance or if you've never been interested...I promise you won't be let down. In fact, Mr. Ruby would be lying if he told you he didn't watch it. ;) Oh, and I've made a new friend who loves the show as much as I do. So, I'm hoping to have several watch parties AND go see them when the top 10 go on tour!!!

I leave you with two of the most amazing performances I have ever seen. I could watch them over and over. Oh, and believe me, I do.

i totally agree with you!!!! i love everything to do with dance, although tht doesn't mean i am the best dancer, lol. i especially love so you think you can dance! so excited it will be on soon!!

Gwen said...

Oh we would so break out some funky moves on the dance floors together!!! I do the same thing...I'll request "dance" music at company functions just to dance. I ended up dancing alone with the DJ at one of our Christmas parties this past year. Thankfully Ellie got her love of music and movement from me!!! I can't wait for recital in June. It's a ton of work and the longest weekend of the year but so much fun that its totally worth not sleeping (or eating) for 3 days!!! I'll have to post videos of her routines just for you!!!

I'm so excited for this season of So You Think!!! Thanks for posting these amazing routines!!! XOXO

I used to be a huge fan of this show...but it's the hub's least favorite! He always talks about how much he hates it!! So I decided not to torture him anymore....but perhaps it will have to make another appearance :)

I haven't watched in a while :( but look up the dance from a few seasons ago that was to Neo's "Sexy Love" (I think that was it) - Amazing!!!

Totally agree...dancing is my passion!!! I HEART DANCE!

Chelsea was really the best girl in that entire competition, and that was my favorite performance of the entire season. When does it start again? I can't wait!!

OMG I CAN'T WAIT!! I am beyond obsessed with SYTYCD. I DVR all the episodes and watch them over and over again. I used to be in love with Travis until I discovered he was ... ahem... a little more feminine than I originally thought. And I also loved Neil until I met him and decided he wasn't everything I dreamed up - that in fact Pasha was the dreamy one! Two of my most favorite dances EVER are "Why" with Ivan and Allison and "Calling you" with Travis and Heidi!
