The Weekly Dance Class

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

Tonight took us back in time to a time I do remember, but not one I danced too. We learned Disco and Retro. I believe they are close to the same thing except called different names depending on the generation. The closest I got to a Disco establishment back in the day was to work in one as a waitress. At least tonight we didn't have the flashing lights. However, we did bust out a couple of moves that reminded me of John Travolta in "Saturday Night Fever". The arms up in the air and the hips a shaking. I'm sure I didn't look as smooth as he did, as a matter of fact I just haven't quite found my hip action. This is one thing I can say about Disco, it is a heck of a workout. It got my heart rate up, my face flushed and my hair wet with sweat. Hopefully tomorrows weigh in will show some results.

I encourage you all to bust out a move.

    Ok, I have to ask... Where do you go for your dance classes? I love dancing - know it's awesome exercise. But I don't have any dance partner and am tight on finances. So if you know someplace reasonable that takes singles for the dancing, please let me know.

    Keep up with your dancing - those calories drop away with all the fun.

    Ahhhh...Disco. I took every dance class offered at our community college in the early 70's. Disco was a workout even then and I was in excellent shape. One thing about Disco, it was and always will be a lot of fun.

    Have you done the Polka yet? That was my absolute favorite.
    There seems to be a shortage of dance icons. The hula is cool too.
