Let me see if I can get this link working. Choreographing the big HOE-DOWN dance Number! www.facebook.com/video/v
ideo.php?v=1425873971267


For those of you who didn't know, one of my end goals in getting healthy and back to a healthier weight was so I could return to one of my great joys-- dance. I LOVE to dance. When I agreed to join on the cast of The Brother's O'Toole, I was told they'd try to work in a couple parody songs for me to sing and play my geetar (yes that's guitar, but this is a western, so gee tar). This is a melodrama, NOT a musical. However, somehow a big dance number got added to the end of act 1-- a good old fashion country Hoe-Down dance. You can't hear it but it's to the Aaron Copeland music (is it also called Hoedown??) and its really, REALLY FAST. whew.

So, here's us at last night's rehearsal learning some of the choreography-- now remember, it's a melodrama, so some stuff is made intentionally hard so we can fail at it in extremely silly ways and several of our cast haven't ever really danced before-- and are supposed to look like it. It's all meant to be incredibly silly. So far, I think we're achieving that. And yes, this is now on Facebook...oh lordy...who am I gonna have to bribe off someday to keep this from ever going public. siiigh. Please remember, I have not danced in over 10 years...so be kind. :) btw, it's a real blast and I'm having the time of my life.

So keep working toward your goals and all those things you dream of now, that keep you motivated, YOU CAN MAKE THEM HAPPEN. I know it.

So if you're so inclined, please leave me a comment with those things you aspire to, what keeps you going and what you want to be able to do when you are the new, improved HEALTHIER you!

    Looked like lots of fun. and it brings back memories...
    One of the guys said that if you could get 7 guys that could dance you could do 7 Brides for 7Brothers! How about all the square dancing clubs around? There are plenty of guys that dance pretty good! BTW that show i'd love to do..

    Put a hot pack on those muscles today and see if you can rest them. It will be better after you do it again.
