Surely not enough time to master the steps or even feel comfortable in my new dance skin.
But as I prepare (two hours early!) for a marathon of dance night (Dance Quickie, Salsa Burn, Bollywood...oh my!), I'm astonished to realize just how much dance - or perhaps simply J'Adore Dance - has infected every part of my life.
And how it seems to be the answer to all of life's ups and downs these days.
No time for friends? Why not invite them to dance? Tonight, Carrie and Donna will be joining me for our first Dance Quickie session with LIESA. Jamie and I will be burning up the floor during KASHA's Salsa torture. And at Bollywood...well, that will just be me. And, ahem, instructor LUKE.
Looking for a creative way to spend time with your child? Drag her along to Fit Hop so she can laugh at learn with you! Added bonus, she can help you plot your evil revenge when JESSICA leaves you dying and helpless on the dance floor.
Need new ways to spice up your love life? Bring out your inner hottie (or maybe your outer hottie) to Naughty Hotties. And then go home to demonstrate, of course.
Searching for creative inspiration? Dance your way to clear thinking. Or at least comedic relief. (And, um, reminisce about the days Kevin Bacon danced his way into your heart...)
Lacking confidence? Immerse yourself in an environment that encourages safety and fun. Dance like no one is watching. And ignore the blasted mirrors!
Wondering how to make a difference in the world? Donate diapers to help J'Adore Dance reach it's goal of raising 10,000 diapers for the Edmonton Food Bank's Every Little Bottom Diaper Campaign. The studio already met it's first goal of 5,000 - which means Jess and her team will donate $500 to the food bank. Deadline for diapers is November 30, 2010. For more info, click here.
How about you? Got some questions you need dance to solve?
