Too Old To Dance? Not at all.

Saturday, February 27, 2010

Last Saturday one of my friends celebrated her 50th birthday with a theme party. Her guests were encouraged to wear outfits that were reminiscent of the 60's. After researching the internet and checking my closet I found a tie-dyed tunic and bell-bottom pants. Thought I'd model my outfit for you. Here it is.

My friend Ammryl and her daughter Angel accompanied me. They are the friends who opened their home and heart to me when I had my surgery earlier this month. Here we are after arriving at the party.

It was a wonderful evening and the decorations were beautiful. In spite of my leg I had to dance, which is one of my true passions. The DJ was my friend's son who came from London to celebrate both his 25th birthday and his mom's 50th. He was excellent and played reggae music as well as R&B and hip hop. Wish he had played soca, which is my country music, but I had a good time anyway. Everyone of all ages were dancing together. Here I am with Angel.

And here is my girlfriend's 20 year old niece all decked off in her white boots and mini skirt. Hope the picture is rotated appropriately. Some of them weren't.

As I danced I sometimes felt tired and remembered when I could dance the night away and never sit down. I recognized again that I had to lose weight and regain my energy so that I could truly enjoy dancing again. It's time to reclaim my focus with Spark People. No, I'm not too old to dance, I just need to lose more weight, and that I am committed to doing.

    Beautiful. I am planning my BD party next month. I am considering doing the same thing except my music will be from the 50s, 60s, and 70s.

    Funny I should see your blog about dancing. I just got my email notification about some Hand Dancing events which I love to do although I am at the beginner level. But I keep saying once I lose this weight I'm going all out for the dancing and will be sashaying and swinging these hips!!

    Glad to see you're out and about having a good time. You take care with that leg though!!

    P.S. I think if you rotate your pictures and save them before uploading to SparkPeople they should be okay. You just gave me my neck exercise for the day though, I just turned my head to the side to look at them - you look great!!
