I've been Moonwalking in my kitchen. I've been spinning in the kxly920 radio booth. And, lately, I cha cha in my sleep. All the practice over the last month or so will be put to the test on the stage of Spokane's Bing Crosby Theater April 27th. No pressure, but whether I win or lose depends on you.
CYT-Spokane is presenting the sixth annual Dancing with the Celebrities event. The evening features business leaders and local tv and radio personalities to raise money for the local theater group - and, I'll be on stage for two minutes and 30 seconds of dancing glory. I hope.
My partner Brenden Hebert is a dancing phenom; I can hear the air move when he kicks. He's been so patient with me over the last few weeks, teaching me to cha cha, and was kind enough to coreograph our dance to one of my favorite songs of all time. We will do our best to pay homage to the late, great Michael Jackson by dancing to his classic song Billie Jean. Not only will our dance feature traditional cha cha, we're also honoring one of the greatest dancers of all time with nods to some of his most famous moves.
