Now on to the silly stuff for the day - Dance! None of you know this, but in my younger (and much thinner years) I did dance! I was a ballerina want-to-be. I wasn't much into the jazzy and modern stuff, but loved the ballet and pointe work. In fact I did ballet/pointe up till my second pregnancy. But I never spent the money or time to become a real ballerina. All these memories came back in talking with California Girl in OZ who was a "REAL BALLERINA"! So I had to dig some old pictures out to share with her! My real love like I said was pointe, but in my college days I went to school in upstate NY and they were so into jazz and modern. They didn't teach much in the line of ballet - and no pointe - I had to do that on my own. So my college pics are pretty much different dancing than my true love. But they are fun to look back on. Remember these are old so the quality has lot to be desired! But I thought you would all have fun looking at them.
The top picture had to be my most fun dance in my 4 years. It was to a song "Ice Cream Man" or the ice cream man. I've never been able to find that song again - but it was just a plain fun dance. You can barely see me in that picture. I"m on the far right, second person - so you just see me peeking around the front person!
I have no idea what song this dance was to - but we all had these really fun hats and did all kinds of things with the hats! I'm the one in the front right with the long braid.
This was one of my other fun dances we did. The song was "Put the Lime in the Coconut"! It was a fun toe tapping song! I'm the one sitting on the floor.
This one was some weird modern dance we did. We had to be things like Chinese Rocks (whatever that would be) and Seaweed! Unfortunately they got a good shot of my butt in this one! (my backside with the leg in the air).
And the ever popular show tunes - New York, New York. I'm the one on the front left - once again with my leg in the air! Are you seeing a theme! :)Yup, if I couldn't be a ballerina I wanted to be a Rockette!
Hope you had some good laughs at these vintage photos!
