Last week I counseled everyone on the importance of owning your own dancing...Taking the blame onto your own shoulders...With no more excuses. This week its time for me to take a big spoonful of my own medicine!
Last week, as you know, I taught, DJed, and performed for NHABDA (New Hampshire Amateur Ballroom Dance Association) and my friend Jeff filmed it so I could use the video for some shameless self promotion this week. While editing the video I noticed something about my dancing that shocked me...I can't seem to take my eyes off of the feet of my partner during the West Coast Swing portion of the video!
What the hell is wrong with me? While she (Sheila) is flirting with the audience and attempting to look me in the eye, I am staring at her toe nails and making eyes at her dance sandals.
Now, most of the time I love to watch my self dance, each time I watch this video I am more and more horrified at how lousy my posture is. If it wasn't for last week's email I would not have even put it on YouTube. As I say during class, we are all in this together...Learning, pushing, and pulling each other toward the never ending goal of being better dancers. So, could someone please smack me on the back of the head every time you see me lock my gaze onto another dancer's feet...PLEASE?!
