Tweet Big news from DLDancers HQ: Daniel and I found out on Friday that we have been chosen as “pros” for the Alzheimer’s Association “Dancing Stars of Central Georgia” event. Just like on Dancing with the Stars we will each be paired with a local “star” to prepare a dance routine that will be performed […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Tweet Okay, maybe not America’s Funniest but I enjoyed watching this: the clip starts with one of our cha-cha heats. As it turned out, we were not entered for the rumba heat that followed it, but we needed a minute, and a consultation with Vince The Voice, to figure that out. We reappear around 21:15–go […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Tweet I’m hoping to post several recent videos over the next few days; here’s the first. These are the exhibition performances from last Friday at the Atlanta Dance Classic. We appear at the 12-minute mark but the whole show is worth watching. Great dancing all over the place! The Atlanta Classic was a lot of […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

In the absence of outside forces (spring semester ended on May 6; congratulations, Class of 2011!), we have been dancing a lot and doing a lot of dance-related stuff in the last several days. Since I haven’t had […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
Tweet Gentle readers, this past Thursday was a milestone in my life: I bought a new car. First brand-new car ever for me; first new-to-me car since 2001 when I bought a 1997 Nissan Altima. We still have the Altima; it’s in front of the house, basking in all the glory of the 183,000 miles […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Tweet We got back yesterday afternoon from Augusta, GA and the Garden City Dance Challenge, where we had a lot of fun. My lack of self-tanner skills apparently wasn’t obvious, Daniel did not get busted for having gum in his mouth on the dance floor, we danced 15 heats (including our first-ever solo showcase) and […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
