    Default Do you have good (body) rhythm?

    So can you dance? Can you follow choreography? Or, like me do you have absolutely no rhythm and make a fool of yourself on the dance floor? Hubby claims I "dance like a white girl" (sorry, that's really un-PC isn't it?).

    Actually, I'm good at picking up choreography but I have no sense of the beat. Yesterday in my aerobics class we had a new teacher who kept looking at me and saying 'you've got to listen to the beat.' Beat......what beat?

    ha ha -- but it conveys the point accurately!

    I mean, let's face it -- black gals just seem to much more kinetic and alive in their bodies, nor are they as ashamed as white girls seem to be. They've got the sassy neckbob down by the time they're ten; ultimate sass.

    I'm very musical... but I still am somewhat detached from my body and/or self-conscious, so I'm still sort of clumsy. I really do think most of it is the self-conscious thing; if you can't just immerse yourself in it and stop worrying about how good or bad you might look, it definitely makes it harder.

    Actually, I'm good at picking up choreography but I have no sense of the beat. Yesterday in my aerobics class we had a new teacher who kept looking at me and saying 'you've got to listen to the beat.' Beat......what beat?


    That part seems more inborn.

    But if you are having fun and feeling alive with your dancing and movement... who cares?

    Once again, Pink confirms why I'm in love with her.

    If I didn't know you, Pink, I'd have to invent you.

    hmmmm.... I was hired to dance before, but have the good grace in my every day life to be able to stumble over wrinkles in carpet, club myself with a tire iron and smash my hand in the door

    it's a toss up there I'd say!

    Eh. Just don't lose your grip on the pole, and you'll stay safe.

    my favorite quote I like which my humanties teacher in highschool used when it came to dancing and applies to me is "I'm painfully caucasion" I can not keep a rhythm, nor am I musically inclined I tend to trip over thin air and run into things. And I've been known to lose my balance while standing still because I'm too busy spacing out to worry about minor things like standing up.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I have fantastic rhythm. I'm not much of a dancer, though. My body movements in response to rhythm don't tend to fall into the category of dance.

    Do confused bees start flying to unknown locations to gather pollen after witnessing your dance stylinZ?
