Tonight Scott came over. He was hoping I could teach him to dance. And I could've, too - if only he'd chosen something you could waltz to. But he and Ashley's song, sadly, is in 4/4 time. We tried. We really really tried. But it wasn't pretty.
We Googled 4 count dances and got videos of fox trots and hustles. Fox trot is kind of complicated - at least when Louie from DWTS does it. We just couldn't figure it out. And the hustle? Mmmmm...no. I think I made up a basic little box step and we practiced it. In the end, he needs to practice it with Ashley. She's the one with the big white dress that shouldn't be stepped on.
Wow, I was really hoping to be more help, but those dancing lessons at Cotillion when I was 10 years old or so are kind of eluding me. But you know how it is: you picture yourself gliding and twirling with the music, so elegant, and you think you can do it with just one or two nights' practice. In the end, I think they should just settle for the basic Sway. Not very exciting, but practically risk-free.
