Shall we Dance?

Happy Wednesday folks! Guess what? I'm actually going to do random fact Wednesday this week! I know, you're all really excited. 

So, I just starting going dancing again these last few weeks, and I thought that you all might not know about my love for dancing. Apparently I don't really have many pictures of me dancing, so I apologize for that!

On to the facts!

1. When I was a kid I always wanted to be a ballet dancer, so when I finally got into Tap, Jazz, and Ballet lessons when I was... 6? 7? I was super excited! I really did love tap more than Jazz and Ballet though. We were only in for a year.

2. It wasn't till middle school that I went back to dancing. I still had a dream of being a dancer, so I took a dance class in 8th grade. I was really really bad, but it was good times. Especially when my whole group decided not to do our dance on test day and I had to do it by myself. Ha ha I got an A, but I think it was mostly because my teacher felt so bad that everyone bailed.

3. The turning point for me was learning some country swing on Merr's driveway when I was 16. From that point there was no turning back, I was hooked!

4. I took Ballroom 1 and 2 my senior year of high school. I took ballroom 1 and 2 in college as well as an advanced Country swing class.

5. I love Zumba. I do Zumba on my Kinect and it's basically my favorite thing to do. Especially when I wear a coin sash. Just saying, everything is more fun with a coin sash.

6. My favorite dances are Country swing (mostly for the lifts), Waltz, and Cha cha :)

Oh, oh! I just remembered a dancing story or two that must be shared.

7. I have had my hair ripped out twice while dancing. Both times while doing lifts that involved me laying on the ground. Neither time hurt actually. I could just hear the ripping as they stood on my hair and lifted me. The second time I remember just pulling out an entire curl and dropping it to the ground. 

8. Once I took my dad on a Daddy Daughter date to the Murray Arts Center with Merr and her dad. I was trying to teach my dad the candlestick. Do not ask me how it happened, because I don't know, but I kicked my dad in the head. I felt so bad and I don't even know how it happened, my feet shouldn't have been by his head. Needless to say, we have not been dancing since.

There you go! Any dancers out there? What style is your favorite?
