When people see me hobbling about lately and ask what happened, I explain that dance practice for my upcoming music video has been kicking my butt. Then the stream of questions begins: Are you a professional dancer? No. A singer? No. An actor? Well, I was a fish in my elementary school’s version of The Little Mermaid, if that counts:) When I explain that I’m a writer, they ask the logical question: Then why are you making a music video?
After my travel book came out, articles were written about me that included personal details like that I grew up training at Pacific Northwest Ballet School and was on the dance/cheer team at Vanderbilt University. Then I received fan requests to make a dance video. I pretended they didn’t exist. I hadn’t danced since college. Actually, I had hardly even worked out since then because I was so busy writing with three producers on different scripts and on my book. I survived the numerous all-nighters on the “Ben & Jerry’s Diet”—a minimum of three pints a week. But the dance video requests kept rolling in so I finally caved. Here’s a picture of me post-practice soaking my feet in ice water and having a meeting with my two close friends, Ben and Jerry. This shows how much I love you all! My publisher was bewildered by the project and asked how it tied into my book. I found a way. I’ll keep you posted.
Babe…it might be kicking your butt…BUT whatever you are doing keep it up. I’ve never seen you look hotter. ; ) Can’t wait to see the vid.
You GOTTA have some hot European male backup dancers! 😉
Get your groove on, Katherine!
Good luck! But I don’t think you need it. I’m sure it’s going to be great 🙂
Can’t wait! 🙂 I wanna see u work those hot euro men!
If the European men in the video bring you Ben & Jerry’s, I’m pretty sure the rest of American single women would jump on your European men’s train as well.
im so excited to see the final product! its going to be amazing!
This is awesome!! I can’t wait to see what this music video is all about… I would absolutely love it if you could post about the process of making a video, like production, fashion, casting, etc.. Cant wait to see it!!!
Katherine, how is the rest of shooting going? Any hints about what (or who?) we’re going to see in this video? Hope you’re enjoying that Ben & Jerrys!
