Kiss by Prince from Purple Rain into a Flamenco Dance 1

My dance teacher decided to create a flamenco choreography to a pop song. After much deliberation she chose Kiss by Prince. I have no idea how many hours and hours went into studying and practicing this routine. It was so hard that initially we slowed down the music by 80% then by 90%. Finally we played kiss by prince at 100%. Despite all the hard work it was a challenge, an honor and total pleasure to participate in this. And please notice the move involving taking off our jackets. Isn’t that cool? A response to the lyric “I know how to undress me”.

In rehearsal. Here we are practicing our routine few days before the show. I will always remember how happy I was when I danced to this.

Kiss by Prince

Everything about this was light and breezy. At the end of the performance I felt proud of my own accomplishment. Who would believe that this geek would do something so cool and daring. It seems like a dream. Like something that I imagined. I need to remind myself that I really did it.

What pop song would you choose for a flamenco dance? Would love to hear what you have to say.

You don’t have to be cool to rule my world. So do leave a comment.
