Pharrell Williams-Happy

First time heard this song was in spin class.  Lee had it on his playlist during the summer=fall in 2013.  I am a rocker so I do not listen to pop stations.  It is categorized under neo soul and funk. This song stuck with me. Thank you again Lee for your inspiration. You are the man who has so much to give to your students.  There is no instructor that can touch your talent.  God Bless you and your family.

Lee, You make me so happy when I can ride with you.

Originally released last summer on the “Despicable Me 2” soundtrack, “Happy” got a post-“Blurred Lines” and “Get Lucky” boost late last year thanks to a viral music video and Academy Award nomination. Contiguously peppy and brilliantly simple, it seems likely to dominate radio for weeks to come.

Found the HAPPY video with Bermuda as it’s background.  Special meaning because I cruised there from New York to Bermuda as a Professional dancer for two seasons. HAPPY MEMORIES.

Can-Can Dance. Showgirl, Professional Dancer, Nordic Prince Cruise Ship, Greg Thompson Production.

Did two shows, fifteen different production numbers, New York City to and from Bermuda on a weekly basis.  One of the numbers was a Can-Can as I picked the color blue for my skirt. BTW, they are very heavy.  I would nail it every time  I preformed it with six other dancers and  three singers.

Today is the Anniversary of the Day of My Birth. New York City Here I Come. Inspiration. Transformation. Celebration. DONE!

Yes, Today is My Birthday. I always do something special. I also celebrate movement today. Usually take a dance class but I am going to change things up this year. I have reserved a bike at Soul Cycle, Upper Wast Side. New York City.  It is only a few blocks where I would jump in a dance class at Steps 74th and Broadway.  When I was employed on Cruise Ships as a professional dancer, New York to Bermuda. I would disembark, for six hours.  Then, walk to subway from the berth @ 50th and West side Highway, ride the subway up to 72nd walk up to 74th and take class up at Steps. But since I am an avid spinner now. I am going up to soul West 77.  I my instructor is Sue Molnar, check out her Bio. The question is can she induce my endorphins to a point of no return?  It is 9:50 am now and going to do a Starbucks run.  But this story had to be told. Then start packing, drive up to Hamilton, NJ, park and take NJ Transit to Penn Station. Then, to NYC (Aunt Sue, I am going to visit after I get the air conditioner fixed in my car on Wednesday as she is in a nursing home) FYI, I have been going up to NYC since the 60’s to study dance.  My Aunt Sue took me to my first dance class, then the sky was the limit.  I became a professional dancer years later. But,  I cannot wait to ride in NYC.  I believe I am on bike #68, second row in the middle. I have always cross trained to make me a better dancer/athlete. That is why I have always been cutting edge.

Congrats! Your SOUL is confirmed.

Get ready to FIND YOUR SOUL on Tue Jul 16 6:30 PM on bike 38 with Sue!

Drive by The Cars,  Spellbound, Pulsations Nightclub, Glen Mills, PA

My first gig as a Professional dancer was at The Encore Dinner Theater in 1984, Production Spellbound, in Glenn Mills, PA.

After the last performance at 10 pm, it would one hour later, turn into Pulsations Nightclub.

The Pulsations Dancers would then perform.

Remembering Drive by the Cars as Rex, who is a Senior Lecturer, Theater Arts, @ The University of the Arts, Philadelphia, choreographed a production that will forever live in my mind. They used the same stage as the Spellbound Dancers.  The Encore Dinner theater held 850 people for dinner.  Pulsations, well lets say there was reckless abandonment.

At midnight the spaceship would make its way from the ceiling  in this 3-story nightclub and land on the dance floor. The robot, Pulsar was in a glass enclosed chamber. The robot would come out, talk, and interact with the crowd. The pumping bass speakers, risers, and  state of the art lighting were never duplicated at any nightclub I have ever hung out in.  When you are a  professional dancer and it off time, enter a nightclub, look out dance floor.  Canada to Bermuda, Las Vegas to New Orleans, Norway to Denmark, The City of Angels to New York City. St. Thomas to Puerto Rico.  You name it, was cutting edge in the after dark industry, way ahead of its time. Thanks to Barry,  Hey, where are you now Barry? You left Taylors in Cherry Hill, to go to Philly, Egypt or Shampoo Maybe, lost tract of your expertise.

I do not want to sound redundant, it was the best club in Philly area bar none!
