I had to share this video of my home-school girls! http://youtu.be/4-6x3qN0q00  They choreographed this whole routine (still working on the rest of it) and incorporated the salsa steps they learned a few weeks ago.  There is a lot of talent here, these two are very creative and I hope to see more in the future!!   Maybe as time goes on we can learn some more latin dances (i.e. the rumba, merengue, tango) and see where they lead!

Also, if you’re looking for a great home-school for girls in the Atlanta/Decatur area check out: www.somuch2learn.com, where learning is fun, creative and very interactive!!

Art I Appreciate

Dance the Night Away…

Mr. Vachon and dancing partner, Montreal, QC, 1928

If I had to choose, I’d say that my favorite type of art would be dance. I’m a dance-lover. I started taking ballroom dancing in high school after falling in love with the movie “Strictly Ballroom”. And that was about the time “Dancing with the Stars” and the movie “Shall We Dance?” were very popular.

I’d have to say, I’m not a fan of the bump-and-grind and that’s why ballroom dancing holds such an appeal for me. I enjoy the formality, your partner asks you to dance and you thank him afterward. I think it teaches so much more than the dance steps, ballroom dancing teaches, courtesy, posture, and presence and the best part, you actually dance with a partner. The Latin rhythm dances are my favorites, i.e. the rumba, salsa, merengue, samba, etc. This probably has something to do with the fact that I love the Latin culture.
