We were watching a dance show today the kids dance to the tunes like waves. I was awestruck!!! I mean they are so young and yet they flaunt on the stage so confidently. Each of their moves , each step was fabulous and flawless, the co-ordination ten on ten. I love to see people dance , I love when they dance with so much of energy and enthusiasm .People enjoy themselves while they dance. Somehow I can’t dance. I get conscious and then just can’t get even a single move right. I get clumsy and eventually I end up not dancing 😦 ( No this is not a soppy post 😛 )
Even in college days , I never danced at a single freshers party, I used to just get dressed up and stand in the crowd and barely move my feet. I used to enjoy the music, wave a bit to the tunes and enjoy people around me, who were as you can guess the best dancers that I have seen. One of my best(est) friend S is a born dancer , anyone would fall in love with her who sees her , she is simply best at it. So I used to always end up getting mesmerised by the way these beautiful girls around me dancing so elegantly. As far as my dance goes Salman Khan will die of shame and Amitab will look a 100 times better 😛 and this is not over-exaggerating . Yes I am THAT bad and a total loser at that. When no one is around I can really do well , but the moment someone even turns and look .. its a total ta-ta-fish 😀
Again a very dear friend of mine took all the pain to start from the scratch and teach me the basic steps …. It was the time when “Main Hoo na ” was released and there’s a very peppy song .. Chale jaise hawayein sanan sanan.. , so this pretty female taught me to just move bottom up waving side ways for 3 days religiously, and I did it super-bad even on 4th day.. She gave up on me 😛
So now you can get the clue how BAD I am at that.. and I have no shame accepting it.. Sigh how I wish I could dance my heart out and dance till my souls wear out and my legs fall off and I enjoy it. BUT I get so very conscious ….I cant keep the grace up.
Here is the story behind this state… and you thought there is no reason behind this sad state of mine 😛
I was in 4th grade then , and used to study in a convent school. We used to have a Christmas function every year on 22nd Dec. There used be dance performances, a Christmas play ( Where they show the birth of Jesus Christ) , some speeches and then again a normal one act play , sweet distribution and a closing dance followed by Christmas carols. So yours truly used to act in the Christmas play, in the normal one act play as well as co-host or narrate the event and take part in carol singing. ( Yep I was that interested and popular 😛 ) What remains is dance. One fine year ( i.e my 4th grade ) I decided to take part in dance. Me being what I was , wanted to give my best and used to practise day in day out for the dance. My teacher took a hell lot of effort teaching me each step and I was doing fine, not great but I was doing okay.
Everything was set—-
- The pleated red skirt – READY ( stitched specially )
- The frilled white blouse – READY ( Tai’s)
- Tap shoes – READY ( Dad bought the new pair .. He is a darling )
- Hair ummmm I had a boy cut 😛
So here I was all set to swoop in and take on the dance floor and was waiting for my parents to arrive as it was my first DANCE performance and they could not have missed it. I was waiting for them but they did not come until the program started. I gave up the hope. We all got ready and climbed up the stage. I was enjoying the music and was dancing with my partner ( I remember his name till date Rohan Sanap .. 😛 ) gracefully , without missing any steps and then I saw my parent walking in the hall. Rohan had to push me and I had to twirl back and come back to him !!!!! He pushed!!! Did I come back???? Nooooo I was waving to my parents… and then what I remember is the boooing that happened after that. Thats it… That took it away. I could not dance after that !!!!
It took something away from me, it gave me that complex which I carry till date. Oh boy!!!!
I have anyways found a solution for this wierd problem of mine, two glasses of wine and I am ready to hit the dance floor 😀
Song for the moment:
say na say na how you said it to me
sone do na do na how you did it to me
dholi dhol baja raj raj ke
ho aaisa yaar manana ai nachke
ho say na
seer te duppatta lehriya
nachye pind de kudi de naal shehriya
te dhol wajda ho kudiyo dhol wajda
Gora chitta rang gala gooriya
sadi rab ne bana di jodiyan
ke dhol wajda ho mundiyo dhol wajda
say na say na….
PS: Priyanka looks drop dead gorgeous in this song.. I love her
