Hey, Twinkletoes, how is the dancing going?
I have spent a lot of time talking about the fundraising side of Dancing with the Stars so I wanted to take a moment and bring you up to speed on how the dancing is going. Well, there is less than two weeks until our performance at Auletto Caterers. During these two nights each group will be doing the dances we have been sweating over. I don’t know how the others are doing but I will tell you that I don’t know if I would have gotten as far as I have gotten without the help of my great partner and instructor, Christy Kam. As of this date, we have finished the choreography for all four dances and we are just practicing with the music to fine tune our steps. (It’s more about fine-tuning my steps than hers). I personally think that if we had to perform our dances today we would be a serious contender. I am actually starting to get a little excited about the next few weeks. This reminds me of high school doing the school musicals. A couple of days before opening night, we are starting to do our dress rehearsals, we have everything down but we just need to tighten up a few small things. This is where I feel I am at with the dancing. I am still practicing at home on my own but I do not have a lot of anxiety about my performance.
So here is a challenge for you. Come out to one of the two nights, either 8/13 or 8/14, and let me know how I did. These two nights are free but I only have 30 seats, so please reach out to me ahead of time so I can make sure I have a seat for you. If you can’t make it and still want to show your support, make a donation to Civil Air Patrol. I have the information at the end of this post as well as on my “About” page. I would really like to see some of my old high school musical friends come out because I hope they get to remember some of the good times we had while watching me dance. I know I have been thinking a lot about those times and smiling and laughing about them as I practice.
