DANCING AIN’T FOR SISSIES
|Mrs. C's bosses|
This cranky old man spent the weekend in Rye New York at a Ballroom dance competition. You know, the “Dancing With The Stars” stuff. What with my steady diet of reality TV including shows such as “Say Yes to the Dress,” some of you might think I am leaning to the gay side. I assure you, though I may be getting in touch with my feminine side, I am not changing teams. In fact the few gay friends I do have specifically requested that I do not change sides.
Anyway, I did not participate in the competition, I only went to help clean up after it was over. Mrs. Cranky loves Ballroom dancing, and is manager of a local studio which runs this particular competition. She volunteered my services.

If you watch DWTS, you may think the stars are good dancers, and they are, but the dancers in this competition, amateur and professional, are great dancers. They maintain perfect posture while every movement is sharp and crisp. They appear to glide around the room as if they were Olympic ice dancers. The ballroom style takes endurance, athleticism and strength.
Believe me, this dancing is not for sissies!
