Swing Fling

First of all, thanks to all who chimed in with thoughts about weight-based divisions. I learned a lot, and gain inspiration from all of you!
I’ve been battling Cold: Round Two. The featured attractions on this go-around are a dry cough, headache, and body aches. No running for me for the past three days 😦
I was a busy girl on Saturday, though! I discovered a dress sale that was sponsored by SPASH’s dance team. I found a beautiful blue dress to wear at the balls that I’ll be attending this month. 🙂
Saturday night was UWSP’s Swing Fling- an event sponsored by Delta Omicron that raises money for jazz scholarships. I had a great night dancing with both my hubby and Dale, and our friends Christy, Devon, Jackie, and Adam came out, too!
Brian and I brought cameras to capture the evening, of course.

That’s Professor Mathew Buchman, director of the Jazz Ensemble. He sat in on piano for a tune, and also danced with me! (well, we pretended to, anyway…)

On Sunday night, Dale and I had our last lesson for the season with CWN. It was a great time, and I’m so proud of how far our students have come. I am continually thankful for the opportunity to learn to be an instructor. 🙂 I forgot to take photos of our students this week, but I definitely remembered to take photos of the cakes that we got for them. 🙂 Great Job, CWN dancers! Thank you for smiling, laughing, and dancing with us!

And, as promised, here’s a little clip of Dale and I doing what we do best 😀
I’ll be honest and say that I got a little teary-eyed when I watched this. This was the first time that I’ve seen myself ballroom dance on video, and I was amazed at how far I’ve come. I’ve had some good teachers! 🙂
