Dancing Like the Stars…For Komen Maine
For many years now I have emceed the Bangor Komen Race for the Cure. I love these folks and can see the steady progress in cancer treatments and survivors. I’ve lost a friend and Aunt to breast cancer and I know how many of us can say that very same thing, so whatever they need me for I’m in. Enter, Dancing Like the Stars…I’ll be representing I-95 and you.
The show will be held on March 9th at Husson’s Gracie Theatre and I have agreed to Dance for….well, money. Donations to be exact for the Susan G Komen Foundation which supports many local programs and education. Sounds easy enough right?
So yesterday I meet my coach Dave with the Back Door Dance Studio. A very nice man and one heck of a dancer. So far so good…then he begins to describe the way he intends to lift me over his back somersault style and them I supposedly land on my feet and keep dancing. I actually had the inclination during his description to turn around and make sure he was really talking to me. But given that I was the only other person in the room at the time I am pretty sure the feet in the air will be mine.
I’ll do it of course. I’m game and after an hour or the high energy practices a little gamey if you really want to know. We’ve had only a few practices so far and I admit I am sore in a few places…but all for a great cause and here is how you can encourage me and help keep going. They are calling it a vote of confidence and they’ll cost you a dollar a piece. So if you think I can do this please click here and vote.
