Suzanne Somers has writer a new blog at People. She felt the “thrill of really dancing” this week. Read on to see why. Love her….
Once I learned the footwork, I ceased to count and began to dance. It was the first moment since I began this experience that I felt the thrill of really dancing.
I knew the camera was starting on my butt, so I did my best to shake it for America. Ha ha!
Dance costumes bear no resemblance to your typical cocktail dress. I’ve lived my life in cocktail dresses, but for dancing you want an outfit that shows off the dance. Tony actually designed my dress because he wanted all that fringe to accentuate the twisting and turning. Tony felt my spins and twists were lost in week one because I had a costume with no movement.
I was emotional for a myriad of reasons. First, I felt so good about our dance because Tony and I had worked so hard to get there – my body got a lot of bruises this week – and then to get that tremendous audience reaction made me feel overwhelmed with emotion that it’s all been worth it; that all the work I have put into my health and taking good care of myself has paid off. I never let cancer beat me, instead I used it to work for me as incentive to do all that I have had to do to achieve peak health again. So putting all those thoughts together got to me.
