Less than a week from now, I will be dancing a tango/rumba, all attitudes of Cher, to "Welcome to Burlesque." I will be partnered by my husband of so many years. I will dance in my own alma mater high school, my Hall of Fame plaque shaking on the auditorium's exterior wall, as it wonders what has become of my dignity. I will be transformed! Electrifying! Snatch-worthy! I will not trip! (maybe!) I will not forget! (perhaps!) I will.......move!
(With all these exclamation marks I am beginning to remind myself of Tom Wolfe!)
In the meantime, I watch videos like this, discovered by DanceSport's own Tirsa Rivas (who actually is a star).
I think: If only I had two more weeks of practice.
