My childhood activity was dancing. I started at age five, and unlike most parents who encourage their children to try everything to see what they like, my mother opted for the "do-this-one-thing-to-the-best-of-your-ability" and "finish-what-you-start" approach. So, from five to twenty-something, I danced every style imaginable--from swing and tap dance to ballet and kickline. It should come as no surprise that I am feverishly in love with So You Think You Can Dance.
My wonderful and loving boyfriend takes hints very well, so when SYTYCD Tour tickets went on sale, and the Atlanta date was listed in my birth month, this was the conversation:
Leah: SYTYCD TICKETS GO ON SALE TOMORROW!!! YOU SHOULD BUY THEM FOR ME FOR MY BIRTHDAY!!
Mark: Yeah, sure.
We really have a good open lines of communication.
Today, I saw the So You Think You Can Dance Tour with one of my old dancer friends, Kaylee, who was my partner in crime for many years.
The show, in short, was dazzling, exciting and indubitably better in person than on TV. I got to see all of my favorite dances from this season like the baseball dance, the homeless and rich man dance, Travis Wall's mom's dance, and the prom dance with a "bonus ending" sort of thing...even "Get Outta Your Mind" with Alex & Twitch on the jumbo-tron!
I was so captivated by the whole event that I couldn't even snap a single picture with my camera.
Makes me want to stop by a dance studio and pick up where I left off...
