We all have them – those moments when you wish like an ostrich that you could burry your head in the sand and simply disappear. Since it has been a long, mundane, frustrating week of dealing with household repairs I thought listing my top three most embarrassing dance moments might help us all get our weekend giggle on! Here is my countdown:
3). My mother was a professional dancer on the stage in Kansas City – I wish I could find the photo I have somewhere of mom with her dance partner dressed as a miniature Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire. Since children are often encouraged to live out their parents’ discarded dreams, I found myself in dance class and recitals too – however, grace is not a word one would often associate with my gangly legs and two left feet.
2). A few years later I was part of show at Camp Thunderbird when I did an unexpected belly flop off the stage while dancing. I did my best to pretend it was an intended move – although I seriously doubt the audience whose lap I landed in bought my pretense!
1). The most horrifyingly self-conscious dance moment of my life? Hitting the disco floor with Madonna at Palladium after her 1985 bridal shower (and a few too many glasses of Champagne). The DJ spots her, throws on the newly released Into The Groove and voila all eyes are on us – and my two left feet. Talk about an ostrich moment!
Okay, I shared mine – now it’s your turn to make me laugh. What are your most embarrassing moments? If you have them on film please do share on Facebook! Maybe we should all take some comfort in a recipe inspired by an artist who can definitely get into to the groove…

I’d like to dedicate my newest recipe to Prince for making me feel twenty-one, and inspiring me to get creative at what I do best again after a great concert I went to with my daughter, Tatjana.
