Romantic Couples Dance a Success with Swoon

And tonight my dream came true - I danced couples in sync. Five couples, to be sure, but it is a start. Everyone was dressed to the teeth and the music was awesome, of course, because Tina did it! I am tired and wishing I had access to more dances of the quality I like. There are tons more couple dances in SL but they make the dancers look awkward because they are so fast and jerky. Doing an hour with only 23 dances (that was all that I could find acceptable) was a bit daunting, but I had a lot of fun. It is very different to choreo couples dances than singles dances. The intan "list" is a blue box menu with pages that need to be recalled after every choice - but it is still more relaxing for me because i could let the dances cycle a bit longer and didn't need to change them out every 15-30 seconds. I could hear chuckles when a few dancers recognized the cuddles I threw in toward the end (a kiss and the beginning of Moments.) But if everyone had fun, I am pleased. And Lil wants it to be a regular event every week, so I guess she liked it too!

Thank you for such a wonderful time Emy! Gray and I enjoyed ourselves so very much. It was very romantic, and I couldn't think of a better choreographer to have fulfilled such a difficult task.
I look forward to hopefully coming again!

Ariel you are always welcome, of course. And I promise I will improve, honest! The hardest thing for me will be having to find a dance partner every week!

Three Cheers for Emy! It was refreshingly different!
