This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Celebrating Dance

July, 24, 2014

Everyone can benefit from dancing—not just on this Saturday, National Dance Day, but every day. In this little video, I filmed four generations dancing and edited them together.

I hope you didn’t miss the elderly lady in the tangerine outfit swiveling her hips. She danced ballroom for years. She said that she was “thrilled” to be able to use some of her moves again, even if she “might topple over.” Rest assured, she stayed on her feet and was terrific, as was everyone else, from my little cousins playing to some teenage dancers preparing for a performance.


National Dance Day was created by Nigel Lythgoe of “So You Think You Can Dance.” To count yourself in on the array of events planned, see Dizzy Feet Foundation.

Sending gigantic thanks to Mycle Wastman for letting me use his song, “As Long As I’m With You.” If you didn’t see him perform on The Voice, you missed out big-time! To learn all about him go to

And I appreciate Pacific Ballroom Dance for letting me sneak into their dress rehearsal to film!
