(Link>)Shira attempts to enter the 21st century: Here (I hope) is a video of the first dance that I ever choreographed

Hey, it works (more or less)!

Here's the first dance that I choreographed to Mark's music
See also this post, about the creation of this dance, and this one, about its first performance at "Girls' Night On". Enjoy!

Don't forget to check out more of my YouTube goodies, etc.--see my Nov. 5 and 18, 2006 updates below!

For those of you who clicked on the link titled "Discretion is the better part of wisdom" (in a later post) and were surprised to end up here, or who clicked on the link in either of the later posts titled "Good luck trying to be disrcrete on a blog," please note that, as a precautionary measure aimed at helping me keep my job, I haven't told anyone at the office that I blog. Therefore, I'm very nervous about leaving photos or videos of myself, or even links whose wording indicates that such things exist, visible at the top of this screen, lest they be seen by anyone in my office when I check my blog for comments. (And no, I never publish posts or reply to comments published on my blog from my office computer.) That's why I deleted the "embedded" video (the kind with a visible screen) that was originally part of this post. To see the video, click on the post title/hyperlink, which will take you right to it. That's also why, the next time you see a post title that includes a word such as "discretion," "discrete," "subtle," "Just between you and me," or the like, you should click on the link(s) that are included in the body of the post to see something interesting. I still have three more of my dance videos to upload. :)

Sunday, November 5, 2006 update: Here's a video of another one of my dances, courtesy of Mark's music. Mark wrote about this beauty here.

Saturday, November 18, 2006 update: I just got authorization from Lenny Solomon to make the dance that I choreographed to his song B'yado available for public viewing on YouTube. B'yado is from the Shlock Rock album Songs of the Morning (also known as Shirei Boker), which can be bought at the Shlock Rock webite. Thanks, Lenny! Enjoy, all!

Some fun comments from the choreographer:

In my dance to Mark's Ki V'Simchah, can you spot the American Sign Language? Hint: One of the hand/arm gestures, repeated twice, means, "tree;" the other, which I describe as a "compound sign," shows soil sifted between the fingers followed by a sign depicting a large, flat surface, and means (I hope--I'm over a decade out of ASL class) "field."

Watch the spins in B'yado closely: I confess to being very proud of the fact that my feet land exactly on the notes when I spin. (It ain't easy, lemme tell ya.) Also, those readers old enough to have watched the Jackie Gleason Show (and/or young enough to have seen it on DVD, if it's available yet) should be able to spot what I call the "And away we go" maneuver, swiped straight from that master of comedy himself.

Thanks mucho, both for the compliment and for the music.
