It’s been amazing!

I’m Foxy. I’ve been dancing for about 8 years at Fred Astaire, and I absolutely love it. One of the reasons why I love it is because I get to come off the floor looking like this –I’m all hot and sweaty, my face is red, my hair is all over the place, and I don’t really care! But it’s changed my life so much. I started out, like I said, about 8 years ago, and I’ve always wanted to dance when I was a little girl. I just never thought I had the ability to do it. However, coming here and working through everything I was able to do what I really wanted. I have the capability to dance! And I feel great about it. I’m able to perform. I used to be this shy little wallflower who would go hide in the corner and then I’d come out. Now I can go out and wink at the judges, and I can play with the audience –it’s just incredible to me that I’ve been able to do that. It’s given me so much confidence in my life. It’s helped my brain in terms of remembering things because I have to remember all these steps. I was amazed when I saw my daughters dancing and thought to myself how could they remember all those steps? –and today I can proudly say I can remember all those steps too. It’s like a brain game or a brain exercise if you will –and that’s just one piece of it, the other piece is physically. I mean, I think I’m in the best shape of my life, and I’m in the second half of my life so I think that’s incredible in terms of what it’s done for me physically, mentally, spiritually. It’s just that I feel like a different person than I did 8 years ago. It’s been amazing.
