Hit and Run

Hey all, sorry for the long delay but it's been a busy few weeks all crammed together and I expect it to run into next week as well. I should have warned you all, but hopefully the Dagromm withdrawals haven't been to bad.

I don't know if any of you watch So You Think You Can Dance, but my daughters' former dance teacher is in the top 20 and I guess after this week is in the top 18! She was by far my favorite of all her teachers, and I still get happy eyes whenever she comes back to hang out at the studio. So if any of you watch the show then feel free to vote to keep her on. Her name is Chelsea Traille and she is still the only dance teacher to get a Christmas gift from us.

One of the other final dancers is also a previous dance teacher of my son's. His name is Chris something and I don't guess I paid much attention to him when he was here. I'm not nearly as interested in him so vote for him if you wish. His partner however is also a local product and graduated from the Arts Magnet High School. So, once again another tie to my artsy sisters who are also alums.

Plug, Rake, Easel, and I are all pretty SYTYCD viewers. I LOVE knowing we have two degrees of separation from their dancers. I just can home from the ballet (with another blogging friend who watches) and it was one of our hot topics! Love to all.

Goo said...

Strike that.

Plug, Rake, Easel, and I are all GORGEOUS SYTYCD viewers.

Sorry, I'm clueless. Which network, day o' the week, time o' day is this program? In spite of spawning the "artsy sisters" (and you other two slugs) I don't keep up with all these competitive shows. But. . . if you're for them, I'm for them.

I'm with Lit on this. Never seen it, now willing to try it out.

Chill and I looked at some of the YouTube videos from the show last night and they were fun. We didn't find one for Chelsea, though.

Goo--you guys are just gorgeous, no matter what.

Goo - I think it's pretty cool too. I don't usually watch this show, but I will this season.

Lit - FOX Wednesday evenings and Thursdays are the results shows.

Dmarks - I don't overly endorse the show, but if you like dance then it's a nice watch.

JAZ - I've got a video at home that I can bring by from my daughters dance class if you want to watch her. I keep it in the top shelf of my closet. You know, as a keepsake.

Easel, Rake, and I LOVE STYCD! I have to say we really like all the hometown dancers but there are a few others higher on our respective lists. Canada is auditioning now for its first SYTYCDCanada - can't wait!! I am hoping the level of dance is higher than the level of singing on Canadian Idol.

Lit - Wednesday night is performance night, Thursday night is the elimination (though there is still plenty of dancing to watch that night as well).

That's so cool. I don't watch the show, but I'm always happy to know that good people are getting their props.

She got a gift??? How awesome is that?!
