Day 120 – Sylvia and Javier return to Tom Jones’ “Black Betty”
I got lots of great requests this weekend, so I thought I’d better start delivering. We got a late start to our day and once I got to thinking about the dance, I couldn’t get Javier and Sylvia off my mind. One of the songs that was requested yesterday was Boogie Fever. I started out thinking I’d dance to that, but Javier just couldn’t get the right funk groove on. A long time ago Diane Rocha suggested Black Betty, so I turned on that song up and it seemed to work for him. One day when I have time, I’ll choreograph a routine for them so their dancing actually matches. Maybe by the time I do – I’ll have a better backdrop too so they don’t look like ghosts. I put a lot of pressure on myself doing this without much time for execution, but getting it on video is helping me see what works and what doesn’t.
