In which I dance in a style I’ve never tried before

Tonight I joined my fabulous friend Jill Murray, at Studio Sweatshop for a breakdancing class. Jill wrote the YA book , Break on Through, which is about a b-girl crew. It’s a great novel. I loved it. Imagine everything you love about watching a dance movie, like Bring it On or Save the Last Dance, but in a novel. Delicious.

Anyway, she was in a crew back in the day, and still keeps up by taking classes with delightful JoDee (aka Feisty) who is in Solid State Breakdace and was my patient teacher.

I must admit that I am not the best b-girl. But who cares! It was totally fun! I was dancing! And dancing is totally fun! I learned a lot. Like, now, I can Drop the Needle (very gawkily) and do one freeze very well.

Here’s me doing my freeze with Jill cheering me on!
