Ballroom Dancing - Granada Pavilion
An Evening to Remember
Our mega holiday started off with a bang. Tom and I went ballroom dancing the night after we flew into Los Angeles from Melbourne, Florida. It was certainly a night to remember!!!
I am not sufficiently competent to showcase but when I was out in California on
vacation, I decided to go all out on the town ... dressed up fancy and engaged a
professional dance host.
The evening of October 5, 2012 is forever etched in my psyche. I have been
ballroom dancing for a few years now and have taken group lessons as well
as a few private lessons. I have however never danced in a showcase before
and often wondered what the experience would be like.
The Granada Pavilion in Granada Hills, California, not far from Hollywood, was quite a ballroom. What is unforgettable however is how it felt to be dressed up and dancing with a pro. There were certainly moments when I felt like the belle of the ball. I know that I was quite the center of attention, primarily because the dance host, Spencer, was simply fabulous and made me look as though I was a good dancer!
The heart-breaking part of the otherwise perfect evening was that I only had
with me a cheap travel camera and not my Canon camcorder. All I have of
my very special evening are a few photos and half a dozen videos which
unfortunately are of poor quality due to the very low lighting in the ballroom.
