About the Dancing Divas:
Several years ago I started teaching a dance-aerobic class at the Lakewood Center for the Arts, in Lake Oswego. Since I'm not big on the regular form of aerobics classes, with the standard grapevines and kick-ball-changes, I started teaching more of the forms I found more interesting, and borrowed heavily from the ballroom dances I know and love, and from the stage musicals I love to watch. Our class has become a highly stylized series of dances to usually non-traditional exercise music, but definitely danceable fun all the way around. Not to mention, we're a wonderful group of women who have become great friends, laughing and dancing together, and supporting each other through all of life's ups and downs.
We waltz, we tango, we samba and cha cha. We swing up a storm, and jazz and vamp all over the place. The class is for anyone who ever loved being a dancer,anyone who ever wanted to be a dancer, or anyone who ever just loved dancing and wanted to dance more. For years we've joked about putting on a show. Recently we had the opportunity to do so, when one of our class members, who is the president of the Lake Oswego Newcomer's Club, invited us to attend the auction the club was hosting for Meals on Wheels. We had great fun flash-mobbing one of our routines to kick off the dancing for the night! We hope to recreate the fun and the flash again this September at the CARE TO DANCE fundraiser to benefit Care Partners.
We've put many of our class routines, including All About That Base, on video so everyone can join us in the future, or just have fun dancing at home. Watch for more details to come, and if you ever have the chance to join us on a Monday, Wednesday, or Friday morning at 9:00am at the Lakewood Center for the Arts, we'll all be glad to have you there.
The Fitness class is always fun, but then there was the time we actually performed...
