“Get loose for heaven’s sake!”

I seem to be in a writer’s slump – that is, a blogger’s slump, which is pretty ironic considering that I proudly declared in my last post that I always have something to say about dance. Although I recently saw a great program at New York City Ballet, I haven’t been able to formulate my thoughts into something worth posting just yet. So for now, I’d like to share a video that will have you laughing in no time, and wondering why Jazzercise isn’t as popular today as it was in 1982. I encourage you to get out of your computer chair and “find that boogie body”. You’ll feel great! Jazzercise, by the way, is definitely a legitimate form of dance.

    “Hot Dawg!”

    That’s some Jazzercise craziness. I remember my sister and I used to lock ourselves in the basement and dance to my mom’s old aerobics tapes, the ones she bought to get herself back into shape after three pregnancies (hehe, the image of my mom doing aerobics by herself in front of the TV).

    Aerobics are one of those things that are great for people who are new to the idea of using their bodies, but for dancers I think it can be a bit, err…horrifying, for me at least. Jumping up and down in place punching the air is somehow not as emotionally or physically fulfilling as dancing, and falls somewhere in my cringe zone between walking on a treadmill and watching the Rockettes’ Christmas Spectacular. Ouch! Apologies to all Jazzercise/treadmill/Rockette fans.

    Judi, I was searching for 80s aerobics videos because I simply love them and live eternally in the 80s.

    I stumbled upon yours from ’82 on youtube, and it was just the greatest find! I’m a straight male who graduated high school in, yes, 1982.

    Your enthusiasm, to me, reflects the optimism of the 80s and America in general. Keep up the good work.
