I’m over 40 (45 now) and I returned to dancing 2 years ago! I NEVER thought my body could move like it did 25 years ago when I was a pro dancer. SURPRISE.. muscle memory is an amazing gift!
I started back in the ballroom after a 15 year break (that’s another story). I tried to remember all my syllabus steps from American style ballroom aka “social” dancing. AMAZED that this time around I would start competing – strictly for the exercise + JOY of it all.
A few partners, instructors & coaches later THIS HAPPENED!
After 6 months of changing coaches and starting International Rumba from scratch, this was just my second time dancing with my AMAZING coach Nikolai Voronovich.
I am on a dancing journey now.. with the goal of competing in International style with Nikolai within the next year!
I invite you follow my journey, share my struggles, injuries and joys. PLUS, I always have a bag FULL of BEAUTY musts. I am always ready to help any and all dancers at events with their BEAUTY NEEDS & LASH applications (there will always be behind the scene moments). I share my story, journey, life lessons & beauty tips/picks with you..
I hope to INSPIRE you, make you LAUGH & ENCOURAGE you to try something on your BUCKET LIST!
Lesson: Finding a good “coach” in any sport takes some time. Once you find someone with the same passion, higher technical skills and a good connection – YOU WILL KNOW IT! I dance for the pure sport, enjoyment & exercise now. I want to see how good I can get BUT have fun in the process.
I KNEW I found the right coach & partner when he saw the potential in me and was able to bring it out! PLUS the fact that I can laugh WITH him at all my frustrations, mistakes and struggles along the way! (I had NO IDEA who he was before I started dancing with him.. I only figured it out when we began attending events & everyone was stopping him for photos!) So grateful to have found such a pro & well respected coach. (Crazy list of titles right?!?!?)
Beauty Tip: My BEST pick for performance “body” makeup or summer leg makeup is Sally Hansen airbrush leg makeup. Once it dries it is water & sweat proof.. I actually usually have it on long after event (even AFTER a shower for 2-3 days). I apply it with my hands, directly on my legs before I get dressed and it sets very quickly. 5 stars!
Thanks for reading and stopping by.. I will be back next week talking about my love of KT TAPE.
