You may not know this, but I have another passion besides reading. Dance. I have not done much of it myself as of late. I need to do more. I incorporate dance into my teaching and run an after school dance club for kids in grades 4-6. I am an unrepentant So You Think You Can Dance junkie. I own seasons 1-3 on DVD. I can not miss an episode. I am an addict.
Last night I was watching the show and drooling, as one does when there are gorgeous half nekked menz on their TV screen. But I was also drooling over the choreography. The passion and emotion that the dancers and choreographers created was amazing. There were two dances in particular that brought to life the relationship between and man and a woman.
Will and Jessica's lyrical jazz routine is hawt! When he grabs the shirt and pulls it up onto her shoulders, and then pulls it off of her... that needs to be worked into someone's book. Stat!
Then there is the pain following the ending of a relationship. How many of you have laid in bed at night after a breakup tortured by memories of your ex? The expressions on Twitch and Kerrington's faces as they gazed at one another across the bed was haunting.
It is truly beautiful to see those things that draw us to romance embodied in another discipline.
