HU Column: Lets Get Ready To Dance
Do you like this Article?
Donâ€™t laugh or call me a girl (HA) but, if youâ€™re anything like me, you might enjoy watching movies with lots of dancing! While watching some of these dance movies such as Hitch or The Step Up or any one of the Bring It On movies, you may have wondered who dancer number 1 was. That really cute dancer is Sarah Mitchell from Burlesque.
I was invited to attend the first annual Dance Track Magazine Artist Awards. I had never heard of such a thing or did I know anything about dancers or dancing for that matter, but I will explain that later. I have to admit that attending an event with all of these beautiful and talented young ladies intrigued me and it was an easy sell.
One of the girls even asked me to show her what I had! I had to tell her that I suffered an illness that kept me from dancing. I was not very surprised when she took a few steps back as she asked what that may be. Being the wise Ass I am, I told her being Caucasian!! She gave me a little smile and told me she could teach me a few moves! Unfortunately,I had to very nicely decline (What the hell is wrong with me?) and told her Iâ€™m like Kevin James in the movie Hitch and have been doomed to stay in the box!
I did have some fun with Chad Smith, who you may remember from Step Up 3, whose role was the guy who is like a human robot. He did perform a little and introduced us to his special someone that we wonâ€™t reveal here but check out Hollywood Unwrapped on You Tube to get the scoop.
Anyway, I also had the opportunity to have a little discussion with my new favorite dancer, Sarah Mitchell. To me, she could be the perfect 10 (just like the movie) as sheâ€™s seemed down to earth, approachable and just seems like a fun girl next door that sat behind you in math class and had that â€œitâ€ factor. Soon, youâ€™ll be able to see her on E! as she is a principal cast member and assistant choreographer under Laurieann Gibson on â€œThe Dance Sceneâ€ that will premiere this Sunday (April 10). Oh and did I mention she was a knicks city dancers? That is the dance team of the New York Knicks in case you are wondering.
