Burn the Floor

{LISTEN: History Repeating by Jamala}

Last night we went to the most amazing show, Burn the Floor. There were so many wonderful, fabulous things about it, I don't even know where to start.

If you're not familiar, this particular broadway show consisted entirely of dance...latin, swing, waltz, jive, and more. The performers were the most talented group of people, and they really got the crowd into the show. To be honest, it was two awesome hours filled with what could best be described as my favorite movie moments from every movie I've ever seen. --You know, Boy pursues Girl on the dance floor. Girl plays hard to get. Boy shows out on the dance floor until the girl gives in. They fall in love immediately. Sigh.--

I was itching to get out of my seat and bust a move.  I even had a few flashbacks of the ballroom classes that Will and I took the winter before Hudson was born. (Our teacher said I was a "natural". Will crushed my toes.) 

Oh, and I can't forget the best part of all! Anybody remember Pasha from So You think You Can Dance? He was a finalist in season 3 and an all-star on season 7. If you followed the show at all, he's not easy to forget. 



See? Well, he starred in the show. It was pretty darn cool to see one of my favorite reality tv stars on stage, just a few short feet in front of me. 

When the show was over, Will and I danced ourselves right to the car. It was a perfect night out. We had a real swingin' time. 


















If this show comes to your town, go see it! You won't regret it.

This sounds like so much fun! I actually just went to a dance performance last week. I sometimes forget what a powerful role dance has played in my life. I danced until I was in college, and everytime I see some kind of performance the desire to dance just comes surging back to me.
