• Dudes on the Dancefloor!

    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 Patrick Swayze?  25 years since the premiere of Dirty Dancing and after a quarter-century and countless viewings I will still stop down my entire day to watch if it comes on cable.  Jennifer Grey is so spot-on in her description of Swayze (and Derek Hough for that matter) in her interview.  Has there been a better time since the Astaire/Gene Kelly era for male role models in dance?

    Just a random fact: I took ballet and tap at The Academy of Dance.

    Excellent! I say “once a dancer, always a dancer.” Perhaps one of few ways in which dancers resemble Marines?

  3. Sadie says:

    I like to think that my childhood dance “skills” took a hiatus and reappeared later as musical talent that eventually led me to have the utmost repsect for those whose dancing abilities didn’t run away from them at an early age.
