Learn to Speak Dance: A Guide to Creating, Performing & Promoting Your Moves
by Ann-Marie Williams (Author) and Jeff Kulak (Illustrator)
Booktalk: Watching a flashy music video or an episode of So You Think You Can Dance probably makes most people a little shy about their dancing skills, but we all know how to dance. After all, dance is just a mash up of everyday movement and imagination. And while a musician might learn how to play piano or guitar, a dancer’s instrument is her own body.
Snippet: When you feel good, you want to share the love. That’s why dancing is always involved when there’s something to celebrate, like a wedding or a party. Dancing together is kind like a big group hug, because it makes us feel closer to each other. It reminds us that we belong to a group, and that’s a powerful feeling.

Blog Countdown #10
Due to technical difficulties (see below) I am moving ALL of my blogs here to Booktalking.
Q. Why are you moving your blogs during the busy holidays?
A. Two reasons:
1. I’m being innundated by foreign language spam.
2. The Feedburner subscription service has locked me out.
This means that while others have found me (in a BIG way!) I can no longer find you. I can’t access my subscriber lists. I’ve had the same login since 2006, but Feedburner was sold to Google and now my passwords no longer work!
I have to START OVER.
1. I will consolidate ALL 8 blogs into 1 at Booktalking.
2. I will count down this week and next (from 10-1)…and then close the other 7 blogs.
If you read this blog via a Google subscription, please click here and sign up for email with WordPress. (It’s the widget on the right that says “Send me this blog via email.”) Then I can see you – and help you – if you need assistance with your subscription.
