Queen of those Damned Vampires! Mardi Gras!

Vampire Queen

Queen of those Damned Vampires!

February, 2004; New Orleans, LA

Mardi Gras was in full swing around them and Team DWSDS/SYTYCV was having Rice & Easy Beans Jambalaya to celebrate. They couldn’t eat too much because they had the Ballroom dance to go to late, but you can’t go to New Orleans and not have jambalaya. While they ate though, they discussed their routine again. Benji Swimmer would partner with Laci Swimmer, Purtrid Andriod would dance with Beryl Clerk, and Herek Duff would glide across the floor with Geliana Girard at his side. Mad Max Prince Charming was the odd one out, but that worked perfectly for their routine. Mad Max would take turns stealing the female partners andMaks dancing with them. The others would pretend not to know where she had gone and her partner would search for her until Max let her go and she seemed to “reappear” to the group. Mad Max Prince Charming was really the best dancer of them all, so it would be the story of the strange man sweeping away the lady from her other lover. When they got back to their original partner, they wouldn’t be able to dance the same as they had before.

Just as they finished, they noticed a rather lavishly dressed woman walking by. Her gown was flamboyant and composed of very fine fabrics. The black was darker than any other material that anyone had ever seen and the red was such a deep color that it looked like she was wearing blood. Naturally she drew everyone’s attention and they could see many people taking pictures. A chill went through the collective group; they recognized her as the Vampire Queen. Cheryl BurkeThis could only mean trouble. The Vampire Queen only appeared publicly when she was about to do something. What could she possibly have up her sleeve? “Thank you, darlings for all of this delicious attention. If you want to see more of me, I’ll be at the Ballroom Dance competition tonight. I promise that no one will forget 2004 after my group’s performance.” Well that solved one problem; they knew where she would be and had an easy excuse to be there. But what was it she was planning?

The team spent the day worrying about what would come and Geliana cast several spells to keep an eye on what was going on. Finally, they entered the competition hall and the competition began. All eyes were on the Vampire Derek HoughQueen when it was her team’s turn to dance. She danced elegantly and everyone was enraptured, but Team DWSDS/SYTYCV focused on something else. She was using her dance moves to draw a spell pattern on the floor. Geliana had to strain to keep from screaming. The Vampire Queen was summoning Hurricane Katrina!

How will this saga end?

The Vampire Dancer Saga

Dancer Tribute 1/1/12: Lacey Schwimmer (Redlands, CA)

Lacey1Dancer Tribute 1/1/12: Lacey Schwimmer (Redlands, CA).  Happy New Year to all dancers of all dance styles.  I first saw Lacey Schwimmer in Season 4 of So You Think You Can Dance 2007.  That season was my all time favorite, as I voted for Sabra Johnson, Danny Tidwell, Neil Haskell and Lacey Schwimmer throughout the Season.  The Sweet Dreams dance with Sabra & Neil is my favorite dance from all seasons on SYTYCD.  Mandy Moore was nominated for an Emmy for that routine and I think she should have won.  I also remember watching Lacey’s brother, Benji on Season 2 of SYTYCD and I really love his dancing as well.  I also love to watch Lacey’s father, Buddy dance.  He was on Dancing with the Stars this past season and he sure can cut a rug.  I loved the clip when Buddy was giving Chaz Bono some tips on dancing as well as his appearance in the Finale Dance with Chaz and Lacey.  I did not realize that Lacey’s mom was also a gifted dancer, Laurie Kaufmann.  I love her dancing as well.  The talent of dance was truly passed down from Mom & Dad to son & daughter.  They are the First Family of Dance!  What a talented group of dancers, all in the same family, amazing.  Congratulations to the talented Schwimmer family, I look forward to seeing them dance in 2012.
