Aunt Carol Is A Delightful Dancer

Have you ever been hungover on a Saturday morning and sometime between your first Thai food delivery of the day, your third episode in an SVU marathon and the time you pour yourself a drink in order to get on with your life, you end up stumbling upon a channel airing a senior chair workout?

You chuckle to yourself until you realize you can’t even move from the couch to peel off the jeggings you wore last night and dry heave when you think about going for a walk to the kitchen to get water. Then you realize these senior workouts are more intense than the squats you do going from your office chair to the bathroom and suddenly you understand the chair-workout hype.

One graduate of the senior chair workout program is Aunt Carol*. Aunt Carol’s dance routine choreographed to Usher’s “Leave The One I’m With” (because A to the C is a ballaaa’) shows how senior chair exercises are the new pilates. I hope they start offering these classes at the JCC sometime soon!

There Goes My Virginity, I Mean, Baby

Ok, yes, Usher can make some very sexy music, but when you’ve got two incredible dancers writhing around to his song, “There Goes My Baby”, you basically need to take a cold shower, grab your partner, call an ex or take your libido-killing anti-depressants by the fistful so as to calm your nether-regions. A big thanks to choreographer/dancer Scotty Nguyen and dancer Tracy Shibata for getting my Monday morning to start a bit sexier than usual.
