Day 241 of Firsts: Soul Line Dancing

28 Aug

Dancing faces you towards Heaven, whichever direction you turn.  ~Terri Guillemets

You are about to see I have very little Soul in my step. I don’t know how to  free style, or do the Chicago, or roll my shoulders while moving backwards. But I’ll tell you what. It’s a lot of fun trying.

Kenny J ( Kenneth Johnson) has been trying to get me to one of his soul line dancing classes for months. This weekend I finally made it to a Soul Line Dancing contest/conference/competition in Claymont, Delaware.

I learned a couple of the easier moves, but some of the best line dances have so many wonderful complex steps, my brain and body could not get it together.  I just had to get out of the way and enjoy the show.

I’m easy to pick out of the crowd. I’m the one that’s two steps behind everyone else. 🙂

I wish I could have stayed all day. Great time. Great people who are so happy to teach and share. But I definitely need some remedial soul lessons. My “bump it left, bump it right” just doesn’t bump well at all. 

Kenny J Productions has regular dance nights and always happy to take on new line dancers like me.

    Good for you to do “Brazil” with all that turning. Hope you try soul line dancing some time again soon.
