DANCE DANCE DANCE!!

THE LAST 8 OR 9 WEEKS HAVE BEEN HIGHLIGHTED BY A TELEVISION SHOW CALLED SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE!. NOT ONLY AM I A HUGE FAN OF DANCE, BUT I HAVE BEEN MESMERIZED AND ENCHANTED BY BENJI AND HEIDI SINCE THEY WERE COMPETING AS A COUPLE IN THE CHILDREN'S DIVISION AT THE MOTHER OF ALL DANCE COMPETITIONS, THE US OPEN SWING DANCE COMPETITION, HELD ANNUALLY IN LOS ANGELES EVERY NOVEMBER. BY THE TIME BENJI AND HEIDI MOVED UP INTO THE JUNIOR DIVISION, THEIR DANCING HAD BECOME SO EXCITING AND INNOVATIVE, THAT IT WAS WORTH THE PRICE OF A WEEKEND TICKET JUST TO SEE THEM. NOT EVERYONE IS AS TALENTED AS BENJI SCHWIMMER, WHO IS TRULY GIFTED, BUT THE DANCE COMMUNITY IS FULL OF WONDERFUL SOCIAL DANCERS, WHO LIVE AND DANCE IN CITIES ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY. IN MY BOOK, FABULOUS AFTER FIFTY AND STILL SEXY AT SIXTY, I TALK ABOUT HOW LEARNING TO DANCE SAVED ME FROM A LONELY PARALYZING RECOVERY AFTER MY DIVORCE. I'M SURE ANYONE WHO WATCHED THIS SHOW UNDERSTOOD MY POINT WHEN I DESCRIBED THE MAGIC AND PURE THERAPEUTIC BENEFITS OF DANCE. I SEND MY CONGRATULATIONS TO BENJI SCHWIMMER, NOW KNOWN AS AMERICAN'S FAVORITE DANCER. HE'S CERTAINLY MINE!
