The Dancing Poetry Corner – Twas The Night Before Christmas – Dancing With The Stars Style

Oh the 11/24/15 Dancing With the Stars Finale there was a spoof on The Night Before Christmas. I loved the whimsical spoof brought to us by Santa Gary, Mrs. Paula Claus, and Santa’s Elf Victor!

I remembered I had done one of those too. Enjoy My encore version from 2014!

I was thinking about TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE. CHRISTMAS. I thought wouldn’t it be fun writing it DANCING WITH THE STARS STYLE. Therefore, here is:

TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
DANCING WITH THE STARS STYLE

Twas the night before Christmas in the dark dancing studio
No dancers dancing, no Mirror Ball Trophy, no special glow

Carrie Ann, Len and Bruno are snuggled warm in their beds
Erin and Tom are in their homes snoozing like sleepyheads

Derek, Julianne and their family are settled in for the night
Tony’s kids waiting on Santa, soon squealing with delight

Val and Maks share love with their precious Mom and Dad
Artem, Sasha, Keo, Henry celebrating in their bachelor pad Read more..

The Dancing Poetry Corner – A Double Christmas Miracle

Another type of writing I dabble in from time to time are short stories. This one has a personal meaning to me as you can see in the paragraph after the story.

Please enjoy:

A DOUBLE CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!

Samantha Erin and Anthony Michael, twins, were born on December 25, Christmas Day, to Louisa and Kent Thompson. They were a true Christmas miracle! Louisa and Kent had tried for ten years after their marriage to conceive a child. They were about to try to adopt a child when Louisa found out she was pregnant. They were relieved they didn’t have to try other means to become pregnant. But, very apprehensive how the pregnancy would progress.

Fortunately, the pregnancy was uneventful as far as complications were concerned. But, the pregnancy became very eventful when one day at a doctor’s appointment a sonogram revealed…..Louisa and Kent were going to become parents to twins! Louisa and Kent’s eyes got as big as saucers staring into the sonogram machine! They could see two babies forming in her womb. This momentous occasion gave new meaning to the word surprise!

It’s The Strictly Come Dancing Semi-Finals – Videos, Rank The Dances, Review The Show

Wow! What a blast this first season of Strictly Come Dancing has been for me. I can’t thank Nathan, Andrea, and Donna more for encouraging me to watch. What’s more….after all their encouragements, it was announced Gleb Savchenko was hired as a Pro. Can you only imagine how this set me over the top? 😯 Then there is ALL of you who have helped, watched, and taken in the show with us to make it even that more fun. Andrea took time out of her busy schedule almost every day and helped to post videos. Mr A, Nathan, Cidra, M8, Vin, and Daniel helped with dance information and Clair helped with her screen caps. Even Heidi (who doesn’t watch the show) covered when I couldn’t be here. Seriously, I can’t thank you all enough. You have made these posts possible and have all helped me to pull through a hard time more than you can know. ((((THANK YOU))))) I know my Dad is smiling in heaven thanking you too…and dancing!

Scroll below for updates…

So, here we are about to take in the Strictly Come dancing Semi-Finals! This week, the couples will be dancing TWO DANCES! Mr A has listed them all in comments in the former SCD post. And get ready. The Group number is looking amazing so far….

ETA: Wow. What a show! I’m freaking out for how close they all are. Well, except for Katie and Anton. More from me in comments with my rankings, etc. In the meantime and thanks to Andrea, below is Gleb and Anita’s Foxtrot.

Another video coming, Stay tuned.

ETA2: And here is Gleb and Anita’s salsa. What a show stopper!!

More dances at the official You Tube site.

ETA3: You can view some breathtaking HQ shots of the Semi-Finals here and here. They say it all on the night.

Entertainment Focus also listed their Top 5 favorite dances at this link. I don’t think I would have put Georgia and Giovanni’s Cha Cha at #2. Their V. Waltz was better imo. Yay for Gleb and Anita’s’s show stopping Salsa at #4. Though I would have put it higher. Though note also how Katie and Anton’s dances aren’t part of the top 5 which I agree with.

Also, Claire made some beautiful screencaps. Below is Gleb and Anita shining in all of their glory. Goodness! Thanks Claire! More coming soon here.

Wk 12 SF - Gleb and Anita

Thanks for all of your thoughts so far in comments. Here’s to the Results show later today. Let’s hope the right 4 go on….and in my opinion (and from yours too by the looks of it here and at twitter), that is Kellie and Kevin, Georgia and Giovanni, Anita and Gleb, and Jay and Aliona!!

ETA4: Well, I’m heartsick on the elimination of Gleb and Anita. They deserved to be in the finals before Anton and Katie. But, wow, let’s give it up to them. What a season they both can feel proud of. Not one time did they not challenge themselves and with such entertaining and show stopping dances. I’ll never forget not one of them. I am so proud of them both. Here is the dance off. Thanks to Andrea for recording. Love you, Gleb and Anita!!!
