Madonna – Express Yourself, Staple Singers – Respect Yourself, Soul Train, Solid Gold Dancers.

Hey people you need to express and respect yourself. These singers know what they are talking about.

I believe you have to love yourself before you can love other people. That is not a selfish statement. think about it. I have discovered loving me again and it feels awesome. Try it. 

 I am so glad I grew up during Soul Train, Solid Gold, and Bandstand. Yes, I was a professional dancer/choreographer in the 1980’s. The best time for music and dance and everything great in life.  The Towers still stood also.   I can always go to the Internet and view the best times because those times will never be the same ever.  JMO.

Got to run and be s student in Bob’s Sunday spin class. He takes me to Church there.  :–)

Koresh School of Dance,  Instructor, Melissa Rector, Modern Jazz.

My spin class was cancelled at Fly Wheel Sports in Philadelphia due to air conditioning problems at 1521 Locust in Philadelphia yesterday.  I was already in the city so I called Koresh School of Dance to see if Melissa Rector was teaching at 6pm.  Fortunately, she was, I ventured to my love of movement once again, Modern Jazz.

Thank you Melissa for sharing dance/life with me once again.  You still are fierce, methodically precise choreographer as when I left a few years ago. Roni is very lucky to have you still around. ” I do not want this movement to look like a competition, I want you to feel it from your soul, heart.”  she exclaimed with a voice of stern expertise. “Take those socks off, this is Koresh.” I did not have socks on as I know better.   By the way, no matter how great of shape you think you are in, a professional dance class is the true barometer of fitness. Yes, I still feel sore down to my toes twenty hours later. It is a good sore.

Go West-We Closed Our Eyes, Pop Rock 1984
I danced to this song in a competition. I did an improvisation, staged it before performance. It was for fun. I  believe I placed 5th or 6th but it didn’t matter. I made the cut for the pay per view tape with Gilbert Gottfried. I wonder where I placed the tape because I received a copy?

We Close Our Eyes Lyrics Go West

Reality can be harsh and also humbling at the same time. In our minds we can do anything, but in the real world we are far more limited.
