dance [Jul. 23rd, 2004|09:59 pm]
john
Today marked the first day back from a 2 month break of dancing seriously. I went to the valley with my fellow dancer friend Taylor, and we took a drop-in with Michael Owens, whose dancers were ensemble in the film Chicago. I discovered as i stretched that a two month break from dance is not exactly an intelligent move, it was very clear that the class ahead of me was going to be a challenge. Dancing adjacent to professional dancers made me look worse, even though i did relatively well in general. One of the women was a dancer in Fosse on broadway, whom i recognized instantaneously. Others were current cast members in Hairspray at the pantages. Michael Owens held a fantastic class that I will be undoubtedly returning to regularly; he had a bongo-type drum, which he hit with a mallet. In addition to hitting the drum with the mallet he also hit my foot when it wasn't pointed enough. I enjoyed his class regardless of the voilence.

Hey! Omg.. I'm sooo pissy. I was trying to call u back last night, but it was too late, aso I said I'd call u today. Then by the time you would have been back from camp (or dance..) my phone was dead. Then I tried to e-mail u and my e-mail was out of service. OY!!!! ok.. I'm calm...
Anyway... for some reason.. even though you NEVER write in livejournal... I thought I'd check to see if you did, cause I have some weird feeling you would have. And you had! That's really creepy (well I guess not for us.. must I mention the "Eddie's accent" incident?). So.. yea. I'm soooo sorry I haven't gotten back to u. I got your message. It was so sweet. I love you so much. I feel so deprived of u. :(
O! And the baseball game ISN'T tomarrow, it's on Sunday! I can't belive I was that stupid. Aren't you busy on friday? O well.. u let me know.
Anyway.. I REALLY hope u get tghis and don't think I'm blowing u off. I love you with all my heart and, for some reason, am missing u a lot more than usual. I don't know why...
OK. Love you baby! My phone should be charged tomarrow, so we'll talk. Or call me @ home.
xoxo,
alex :)

OMG.. Fosse! Which one? Cross-eyed chic? The one who can't do Frugue for shit? The amazingly sexy one? (i forget her name). That's fun! And hairspray.. wow. Good stuff. (lol... niiice)
I just realized I just posted 3 comments on this one entry. Proves how much I love you. (or how much i'm trying to make up for now talking to you the last two days).
I LOVE YOU!!!

OUCHHH I'm sorry that you suffered due to a break from the "DANCING" that you usually take part in. Anyhow.....I'm glad you had fun anyway and that it was a good class. And you saw people you recognized!!! That's always cool. Uhmmmmmmmm well have fun doin' whatever you're doin' and you should see Napoleon Dynamite if you haven't already. They put an extra ending on after the credits!!!! Haha yay. Call me if and when you're bored/free/not seeing Alex or whatever. ---Zoey
