so you think you can dance?

Okay, I don't know if anyone watches the show "So You Think You Can Dance", but as a dancer, I have to say that it is freakin' amazing. I was watching the show last night and I went through so many's so hard to explain to people that aren't dancers, but there's something about performing onstage and dancing your heart's a feeling that is so hard to explain or describe. Just watching the show made me miss dancing so much. Sure, I'll be teaching again starting in a couple weeks, but it's not the same as performing or taking class from an amazing teacher. I have no regrets in my life. Getting married and having my baby are the 2 most fulfilling things I have ever achieved. My husband and daughter bring me so much happiness....but watching shows like that last night, or even some songs that I'll listen to just bring me back. I'm just so glad that I danced for as long as I did and that I got to work professionally. I was able to meet so many people and see so many cool places at such a young age. I think I'll always consider myself a "dancer". It's not the kind of job that you just quit and move on to the next thing. It will always be in me. I will always be choreographing in my head when a song comes on that I like. I love that. This is a picture of me in 2000 performing in a show called "Gotta Sing, Gotta Dance" on a Princess Cruise ship. So fun. Good times.
