This makes me think of the best dancing books that I have read. There are so many different stories that contain dancing as part of the characters backgrounds. I have selected my top three favorites to share with you.
Rock is so much fun. That's what it's all about - filling up the chest cavities and empty kneecaps and elbows. - Jimi Hendrix
The performance of the Cool Cats Rock and Roll Accordian Band at Riverside was fun. With an audience ranging in age from a few months to senior citizens, we witnessed toe tapping, hand clapping, free style dancing and singing (remember the song. Y.M.C.A.? )

Does Broadway beckon? Before you don tap shoes and head for New York, you might want to sample the grueling life of auditions that dancers, singers, and actors endure. From the comfort of your living room sofa, you can vicariously experience auditions for the revival of A Chorus Line on Broadway.
Dancing with the Stars danced its way to the end of its 12th season. Sadly—at least for some of us—it is sad that we will have to wait until fall to see more of the elegance, the excitement, the stumbles, and the strains.

A Post-4th of July Patriotic Treat at the Library!
The fireworks may end when the holiday does, but that doesn't mean you can't still have some fun afterwards. Treat yourself to the songs and dancing of American Rhythm, a multi-talented group of young singers and dancers. We invite you to join them as they sing and dance to our nation's most popular patriotic songs at the Excelsior Springs Branch. This program promises to be good wholesome fun for the whole family.
On February 19th, I had the opportunity to attend a performance of the Kansas City Ballet at the new Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. As timeless as Romeo and Juliet is, it gains new dimension when expressed through dance. The set, orchestra, and choreography worked together to create an experience that was far greater than its individual parts.
So, the weather still isn’t cooperating for outdoor activities and you are getting cabin fever? One way to get some of that excess energy out is to head over to a dance club in Kansas City called Funky Town. Here you will find a unique dancing experience.
Hello again, readers. In this month’s blog, I’m revisiting January’s workout theme (but with a slightly different twist) by reviewing a (very) few of my favorite dance workouts. Here’s an abbreviated list.
Fraught with emotional peaks and valleys, epiphanies of self-discovery, and crushing disappointments, this incredible documentary film follows three teams of dedicated dancers as they endure months of practice preparing for the biggest ballroom dance competition of their lives. The nail biting, edge-of-your-seat scene in the final round of the competition left me breathless!
Now, imagine all that intensity, all that dedication… with fifth-grade dancers.
