Wish I could Swing like this
The thing is you don't know what your capable of until you try, I have arthritis had it since the age of 2, but hasn't stopped me from doing anything I want to do & I do mean anything ! not being able to walk and yet wanting to get up & jive you would think - impossible to do, no if I wanted to do something I would fined away & my parents would make sure I at least had ago, always aiming high doing the best I could possibly do, so you can image my delight when I eventually got out of my wheelchair, after the physio & numerous doctors saying I couldn't do things ! (makes me angry writing that bit) I started dance lessons ballet & tap at the age of 5 years old, I did my ballet exam with a stiff leg and got my medal ! And that was the last of ballet - next on my to do list !
Well one medal lead to another and so on, "I loved dancing", started private lessons on a Saturday morning in between being in and out of a wheelchair, mum thought it was best doing a lesson one to one I really don't think I could of managed a group lesson, wasn't that steady on my legs at the best of times ! everyone would turn up with there sparkly dance shoes, I really wanted wanted high heels I knew not in a million years would I get some - well I could buy them & just look at them ?
These are my special shoes not the none surgical type (had to wear them to when I was young horrible shoes) I had to wait allllllllllong time to wear these (and i shouldn't) wouldn't, cant do -I hate these words, because I can & I have !
Ive got the medals just counted them 24 ! love the Latin American style & ballroom also did a bit of disco too,
So Where theres a will theres a way ! The only thing i didn't get a chance to do was dance in a ballgown in Blackpool tower ballroom & do the jive too, Well never say never ha x
