Well, my friends, this is it. It’s the spring semester, which means it’s crunch time for Dance Marathon, and I can’t wait! If you thought we Exec Board members were excited and enthusiastic last semester, wait to see what we have in store for the next few months!
Now I’ll be honest with you, I hate failing, and I hate losing. I get so frustrated with myself if I lose a game of Uno, or miss the Final Jeopardy question as I play along from my couch. It’s pretty sad, really. So you can only imagine how badly I want Georgetown College to meet our goals for this year ($10,000 raised, 150+ dancers registered). After all, there’s a lot more on the line than just my pride here; we need to reach this goal for the kids! So I, personally, will be giving it my all as I work in my mission as Campus/Dancer Relations Chair to boost those registration and fundraising numbers!
Let’s hope my relentlessness pays off.
In other news…
For last year’s Dance Marathon, I learned the “Jai Ho” dance from Slumdog Millionaire, and taught it to a group of dancers at around 4:00 in the morning. We looked almost as good as the original:
(Take my word for it).
Here I am, a year later, and my embarrassingly horrible dancing and teaching skills have led a lot of my friends to insist that I teach another dance in 2012.
I’m glad they find joy in my awkwardness.
So, I’m sure you’re dying to know what song/dance I’ve chosen for this year.
Well, my decision was simple, because I’ve chosen the dance from the most fabulous music video of this decade, for one of the catchiest pop songs of all time (NOTE: this is not an exaggeration).
What song is this? None other than…
Call Your Girlfriend by Robyn.
If you haven’t seen the video or heard the song yet, I implore you to take a gander right now:
Perfect, right? Just think: if you register for Dance Marathon, you’ll get to see me, in all of my awkward glory, teach you the dance to this song (with only a few wardrobe reconsiderations and the elimination of certain floor humping elements).
Now that’s what I call incentive.
