just tell you how excited I am that Dancing with the Stars is back? Who doesn’t love that show? Am I the only one who
has fantasies of becoming one of the stars? Or better yet, one of the instructors so I could go back each season?
I signed up for a free lesson at Arthur Murray Studios. I was paired up with a somewhat greasy young
man who informed me my posture was excellent. Thank you yoga. As I read through the brochure, my attention was immediately
seized by, “…learn to be an instructor. If you have some talent, we’ll train you.” The fantasies
resumed. The costumes, I thought. The shoes…
Now, as I sit watching this season unfold, I can’t help
but think I’ve missed my calling. My passion for dancing started years ago with my Cha Cha and Belly Dancing VHS tapes.
I like to incorporate both dances into my moves on any dance floor, including the quasi one in my kitchen. Unfortunately,
the belly dancing doesn’t come as easy as the Cha Cha, hence the need for professional instruction at Boston Sports
I am Greek, so it’s definitely in my blood. My grandfather was an excellent dancer.
He was about 5’2”, bald and somewhat round but graceful as a swan on the dance floor. The Greeks love to dance.
The men started the season off. I’m torn between the football player and the Latin dreamboat.
They both made me salivate. (Speaking of salivating, I’m up 5lbs and ate like a sumo wrestler after a weigh-in this
weekend at Killington. It started with the homemade waffle with chocolate sauce dripping all over the place and snowballed
from there. I felt that since the muscles in my legs felt like they were burning off so, too, were the calories. I was clearly
So, back to the fantasy, I’ve lost 7 more pounds…and I’m instructing
the football player and the Latin dreamboat simultaneously…
Whoa! I’m not going to be able to sleep tonight!
Back to the other dancers… Steve Guttenburg is an absolute doll! Love him. The gentle giant
is sweet, I hope he lasts. Mario was really good and very sexy. Adam, the comedian, was stiff but he seems nice so, I
hope he makes it too.
Hmm. I’m going to be sad to see any of them go!
