At long last

My review for Burn the Floor.

This show was SO FUN. Ridiculously good fun, and I laughed out loud with glee several times.

There's no story line, just straight up dancing. The acts are divided the way comps are held, with American standard dances (waltz, Viennese waltz, foxtrot, quickstep and tango) and Latin dances (rumba, samba, cha cha, jive, and paso doble). Every single person in the cast has won multiple national and international dance awards, so you had better believe they were good (and oh my god so in shape!).

And the COSTUMES. There are no words for the sparklyness and hotness of their costumes.

In short, after about two minutes I'd decided to quit my job and become a ballroom dance superstar and my friend asked if he could use my iphone to look up any milongas (tango social dance parties) for later that night.

So fun! Thanks again to FB and Season of Savings--my friend and I had a BLAST.

And what's kept me from updating since then? Lots of little niggly things--homework, dishes, book clubs, happy hours for people heading off to different stages of their lives. And work--I've checked email multiple times over the weekend, which hasn't happened before and I hope isn't likely to be an ongoing thing--there's just a lot to do to get things started in a new job and my boss was out all last week.

And now it's almost time for bed, so I'm off to do the dishes! Good night--and cha cha cha!

  1. American Standard Dances: Waltz, Viennese Waltz and Tango?

    I don't know about the others but these three are definitely not American. But yes, they are standard ballroom dances...

    I am glad you had a good time:)

  2. You need to take an Argentine tango class. It's absolutely addicting, says this addict.
