A peek into the life of a competitive dancer…

I haven’t posted a lot here on my blog about dancing; most of my posts have been more focused on getting healthy.  So here’s a “dancing” post for your enjoyment.

A couple of days ago I sent an email to my dance partner.  We have a big dance competition coming up.  It is the Dallas Dance Festival and it is widely considered to be the largest UCWDC Country Western Competition Dance Event in the US other than the World Championships.  I know that a lot of dancers treat it as something of a “dress rehearsal” for Worlds.  Anyway, so much for the background, now back to the email.

I realized that we only had six practices left before the competition so I thought “Hey, I’d better do some thinking about what needs the most work and figure out a tentative ‘schedule’ and send it to my partner to see what she thinks”.  Create a “Game Plan” in other words.

She thought what I wrote was funny, printed it out and brought it to the dance studio to show the other dancers and our coaches.  Everyone was amused, and then one of the coaches said to my partner “That’s funny, he should start a blog.”  Well, since I already *have*a blog, and a couple other dancers also thought it was amusing, I thought I’d share it here with the dozen folks who are actually reading this blog.  Enjoy!

Here is the email: Read the rest of this entry
