One of my favorite shows to watch during the summer is called “So You Think You Can Dance” and it is just filled with talented dancers. It’s kind of like American Idol for dancing. The show incorporates a bunch of dance styles from hip-hop to ballroom to interpretive dance to Broadway. Each contestant gets a partner each week and they do a dance with them as well as a solo dance. All of the dancers are so talented but obviously only one contestant can win in the end. My friend and I always tape the shows and watch our favorite dances over because some of them are just extraordinary.
If I had the chance, I would definitely take dance lessons and try to become a phenomenal dancer, but I feel like those really talented dancers start when they are about three years old – so that’s a few more years of experience that I am behind on. I have a few friends who are dancers and it is so much fun to go to their performances and watch them dance. When you know the performer you can really see the passion they have when they dance and how happy it makes them to share their hard work with others.
Dancing is a way we express ourselves, so get out there and dance like no one is watching!
