Just dance

A little Monday energy, that's all :)...
I love seeing Wendy Whelan at the New York City Ballet
Dancing bin man of W. London (the YouTube clip made me smile)
My favorite ballerina, Suzanne Farrell (in Don Quixote with George Balanchine, mid-60s)
The legendary Frankie Manning, swing dance king
I had to add hula kahiko (ancient hula), of course. :) {Every dancer of hula kahiko is an oral historian, telling ancient stories.}
~ Wishing you a lovely week! ~
