  • My mom has great taste in videos

    Posted on December 11, 2012 by lauraet in friends & family, in other news.

    Tweet On the rare occasion that my mother sends me a forward or a link, you know it’s gonna be good. Check it: Click through to the “About” to see a rundown of all the dancers/movie clips.  So cool!  And I’ll just be over here buying that song from iTunes.

  • Santa arrives in a Boogie-Woogie Choo-Choo Train!

    Posted on December 10, 2012 by lauraet in exhibitions & performances.

    Tweet I am so excited to see this video!  Last Thursday we danced at the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame’s “Holidays at the Hall” event alongside our friends David Leathers and Mitzi Matthews.  The ending pose of their swing routine is the coolest!  Daniel and I have both been so busy with work this fall […]

  • Dresses in; dresses out

    Posted on October 27, 2012 by lauraet in behind the curtain, in other news, Linktastic.

    Tweet “Laura,” I hear readers asking, “how can I be more like you?  I’ve already signed up for dance lessons and gotten a rockin’ haircut, but how do I take it to the next level?” Well, young padawan, for the next 7 days you have a rare opportunity to own a piece of DLDancers history. […]

  • cha cha cha PENNY cha cha cha PENNY cha cha cha PENNY

    Posted on September 5, 2012 by lauraet in Linktastic.

    Tweet I happened to have The Big Bang Theory on TV this evening and caught this scene (embedding disabled, so you’ll have to click through). Things I love: Sheldon’s takedown of cotillion. And his forced acknowledgement that cotillion training prevents him from saying no to three ladies who want to dance. Amy and Sheldon’s cha-cha, which is […]

  • Dudes on the Dancefloor!

    Posted on August 22, 2012 by lauraet in Linktastic.

    Tweet Michael Kaiser of the Huffington Post makes a sweet and compelling argument for men’s involvement in dance just in time for WRWR’s coverage of Academy of Dance’s new All Guys Hip-Hop class (that’s the studio where Daniel works! woohoo!).  And really, who wouldn’t want to follow in the dancing footsteps of the late, great […]

  • Links are your friends!

    Posted on August 20, 2012 by lauraet in Linktastic.

    Tweet Once again I’ve been compiling (for values of “compiling” including “happening across”) lots of good dance stuff online lately: Are Americans too cool for ballet?  I don’t necessarily buy this article’s conclusion, but I buy its premise: that most young Americans are no longer attracted either to the prospect of self-sacrifice for art or […]

  • What I Did on my Summer Vacation

    Posted on August 5, 2012 by lauraet in in other news, Uncategorized.

    Tweet Greetings from DLDancers HQ where I have returned after 5 weeks in Columbia, Missouri at the National Endowment for the Humanities summer seminar “Jane Austen and her Contemporaries.” I went expecting a dance-free summer: I did not even take any dance shoes or dance clothes, planning to focus on fitness and conditioning (read “go […]

  • MSDE 2012 Recital: “Ballet, Boogie, & Broadway”

    Posted on June 6, 2012 by lauraet in Uncategorized.

    Tweet Well, dear readers, I’ve been thinking about it for almost a week and I’ve come to the conclusion that a recital is not as exciting to recap as a competition or the Dancing Stars show.  Maybe because nobody wins anything?  You show up with all your stuff, you warm up and get dressed, you […]

  • Come to the dark side . . . we have cookies!

    Posted on June 1, 2012 by lauraet in Dancing Stars of Central Georgia.

    Tweet Terrell Sandefur–social media guru, gallery owner, blogger, man about town and now salsa dancer–wrote this lovely post about his Dancing Stars experience.  It’s fun to read about that rollercoaster ride from somebody on the “stars” side.  We were all beginners once; everything that is now familiar and routine was once strange and uncomfortable (especially […]
