DANCING QUEEN! I CAN'T BELIEVE I NEVER POSTED THIS!

I strongly believe in the power of dance! I dance EVERYWHERE: in the car, in the kitchen while cooking, at the gas station pump, in the mall, in the street, during after-school dismissal duty, at the park while jogging, EVERYWHERE!

Dancing enhances my life in so many ways:
  • Dancing provides an opportunity to squeeze in some cardio and burn calories. Sometimes at red lights, I activate my Polar to see how many calories I burn while waiting for the light to change.  
YES, I dance in the car, and YES people see ME!  My fave red light tunes: SINGLE LADIES by BEYONCE, FIREWORKS by KATY PERRY, SOMEBODY TO LOVE by J. BEIBS, and FOREVER by CHRIS BROWN! 
  • Dancing adds excitement to my day!
  • Dancing offers a creative outlet for me to express myself! 
  • And the best thing about DANCING...IT'S FREE! YOU CAN DANCE ANYWHERE FOR FREE! G'HEAD...BUST A MOVE!!!
Speaking of dancing,  the other day I ran across the video posted below, and I thought to myself, "I CAN'T BELIEVE I NEVER POSTED THIS!" 2 summers ago my boys talked me into taking a Mommy & Me class, well in my case Mommy & MEs. Despite much apprehension about participating, I...well we, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and I even burned a few calories! Without further adieu...


      Did you see my sweet moves? And can you believe when I do dance, my boys have the audacity tell me, "MOM, sit down! Where do they think their talent comes from? Heeellloooo...ME! You know the saying:
      "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree!"
      My apples received all of their talent from this tree. The first video features my oldest showcasing his choreography skills from a class he taught last week:


      The next video showcases my youngest...the comedian.

      So, now I challenge YOU! Shoot a video of yourself busting a move (e.g. running man, cabbage patch, robo-cop, the wop, dougie, wheelchair stuntin, etc) and then post the video on your blog!
      Pin It!

      6. I admit too that I dance any and everywhere I hear a catchy tune, the grocery store, the car, the shower. I got caught doing The Wobble (by myself) at "corporate" event recently.

        All I can say is get it girl!!! I commend you for getting down on the floor and then popping back up like it ain't no thang! It would have taken 2 paramedics to get me up! You're boys have some skills too.
