-A sassy Foxtrot like this, to this Lyle Lovett song, inspired by Kristen here, or a sensual and driving Tango like this. I want to go for high impact!
I have to be honest...Tango is my favorite-and best-dance, but I do love Foxtrot and I've never danced it in a showcase. The minute I hear this Lovett song on Kristen's post though, I loved it and envisioned showcasing a flirty and sassy Foxtrot.
Want to help me decide? I wish I could do both. Tango tends to be my default dance since its my best one...but I would really love to step outside of my comfort zone. Plus, not too many students attempt to dance Foxtrot in showcases...its just too challenging...its the classic Mercedes Benz of Ballroom dance. It might be too much considering we only have 6 weeks to put it together.
I have so many showcase ideas and Marcel gets quite annoyed by my plethora of dance desires. He says its like I'm standing a huge buffet with too many choices and I want to have them all...my eyes are bigger than my stomach.
I will be talking with Marcel on Friday at my lesson and deciding on my dance then. No turning back after that...so I better make the right choice.
I am awaiting the arrival of some digital photos of the last competition. I can't wait to receive and post them. In the meantime....I'll show you my competition eyes......for the stuffy International Standard style...oh did I mention that I did dance both styles after all? :)
