Tips from Gaby

Many people I meet say I can’t dance, I have two left feet, my hips can’t move like that and I am too old to learn the Cha Cha Cha.

I think mainly those things you say are self-imposed. To those of you who think this way, watch this season of “Dancing With The Stars” You will be surprised and amazed with the dancing of Amy Purdy, 34. She is a Paraplegic Olympian snowboarder.

I am still shaking my head in amazement as just how she was able to move so well on two prosthetic legs. Two left feet, Amy Purdy has no feet? Can’t move your legs to create a hip action? Amy Purdy has no legs!

So, my tip of the week is: If you need a little inspiration to get up off that couch and come in for that Salsa Class or try a new dance, watch this season of “Dancing With The Stars” you will be inspired and hopefully you will never again say, I can’t dance!

To Dance is to Live

Thank You,
Gabriela Young
